From bridges that span our waterways to neighborhood parks – for nearly 30 years, the Penny for Pinellas has supported investments in areas that matter most to our Citizens: faster travel with 68 new lane miles, 16 major roads with added lanes, and rebuilt bridges; safer communities with more than 20 fire and emergency facilities built or renovated, and more than 150 projects to enhance our stormwater systems and flood control; and protection of natural resources with hundreds of acres of land preserved, upgrades to 21 parks and more than 50 new miles of multiuse trails.
Penny for your thoughts?
Funds are supposed to be used for infrastructure (e.g. roads), yet they are being used for affodable housing. Now they want to use even more for affordable housing. Despite 30 years of this tax, we have potholed, cracked, rippled and poorly striped roads. The politicians are lying to you, so just vote no.
