Kathleen Ford opposes BayWalk sidewalk vacation



ST. PETERSBURG -- Mayoral candidate Kathleen Ford said she does not support privatizing the sidewalk fronting BayWalk.

Instead, the downtown entertainment complex needs better security, she said.

Ford will speak about her views at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Cafe Bohemia on Central Avenue prior to the start of a weekly movie screening by St. Pete for Peace, a group that has led demonstrations outside of BayWalk.

The City Council will take a final vote on BayWalk Thursday morning at City Hall.
