The existing roadway on Trotter Road lacks bicycle facilities, has a narrow rural section with inadequate shoulder, and substandard sidewalk and crosswalk facilities. This project will improve bicycle and pedestrian traffic and safety, through a modification of continuous bike lanes and sidewalks, streetscaping and hardscape elements, landscape, curbing, stormwater retrofits to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff, and intersection improvements. The project will also include improvements to the roadway drainage and underground sewer utility infrastructure due to age and condition, as well as, to accommodate the transportation improvements and traffic calming features. The City would like to hear your feedback and ideas for the Trotter Road project. We appreciate your input!

The West Bay Drive Trail Head project will improve connection points from areas adjacent to the Pinellas Trail, from Washington Avenue SW to 4th Avenue NW. The improvements will be made to beautify the trailhead with amenities, signage, landscaping and more. During the December 15th meeting, the City would like to share the final design of the trail head and obtain feedback on the proposed type of recreational amenities for this improved public space.

District Improvements will be made to infrastructure along community streets from Mehlenbacher Road to West Bay Drive between the Pinellas Trail and Clearwater Largo Road. The City has taken the public feedback regarding stormwater drainage, paving, community streets connectivity, and traffic calming and has developed a final design. The next step will be to introduce the final design at the meeting and accept comments on a traffic calming method proposed for the area.

With the implementation of the Strategic Plan, the City of Largo developed an interdepartmental team to lead the way in developing and implementing a new Downtown District Identity. This identity aims to highlight all three focus areas of Sustainability, Public Safety and Community Pride while coordinating with the new City brand. The goal of creating a Downtown identity is to to establish and strengthen connections between downtown Largo and employment, education, and recreational hubs. The identity will work to make the downtown area unique, visually attractive and welcoming in order to promote patronization of local businesses and encourage the use of social spaces.
 
Deliverables for this project include graphic standards, color palettes, fonts and defined boundaries. These elements must support the shared vision of residents and businesses and be able to reflect on the City’s history while taking an inspiring look into the future.
 
In order to create a defined area with high visibility and a large impact, areas of placemaking were addressed including:
     ·Architecture
     ·Engagement
     ·Landscaping
     ·Hardscaping
 
Through these elements the Largo Downtown identity will provide strategic direction for all future development in the area while meeting public expectations and welcoming residents and businesses to our area.
