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?
a lot of the things I and my grandkids enjoy would not exist - Heritage Village, The Botannical Gardens, Highland Rec - any place a kid spends over 3 hours without pestering about leaving is a winner!
The light show at the Botannical Gardens around the Christmas Holidays is truly amazing. As a learning and advice resource for my amateur gardening efforts has been insightful.
I'm a biker, using the Pinellas Trail is a no-brainer. It is smooth, safe and convenient. A great place to bike with wonderful places to stop along the way.
As I drive around Pinellas County I see some great public and safety facilities that I thought were paid for bt taxes... only to find out that Fire Stations, Training facilities, public buildings would not exist without Penny for Pinellas.
(Yeh, they should have been paid for out of taxes, but when the mantra is cut, cut cut, it's great that we've had a painless method of getting the monies we needed to create needed facilities for fun and safety!) Previous generations did it for us, we need to do it for our kids and grandkids.
