Belleair officials to revisit Belleview Biltmore zoning proposal



Town commissioners may not want to wait six months after all to determine what the zoning should be on the Belleview Biltmore hotel property.

At a meeting last week, commissioners decided they'll talk Feb. 18 about whether to reverse last month's 3-2 vote to delay six months before voting on rezoning the hotel property so a developer could tear down the historic structure and build housing there.

At the same meeting, they also will hear about the mixed-use zoning options that would allow St. Petersburg developer Mike Cheezem, who has a contract to buy the property, to preserve a portion of the 117-year-old hotel if he builds condos and townhomes there.
