Have an opinion about the $20 million pier approach? Take the survey.



Residents who want to offer suggestions about amenities, transportation, activities and other features of the city's planned $20 million pier approach have until midnight Thursday to complete an online survey

The approach will connect St. Petersburg's downtown to the new pier and form part of the Pier District. A grand entry, art bridge, open-air market and restaurants, ideas drawn from the city's Downtown Waterfront Master Plan, will be among the area's attractions.

The survey asks such questions as what types of children's and adult activities and amenities should be included, as well as the kind of art, ranging from permanent sculptures or art installations to space for working artists. The online survey follows a public session that drew an overflow crowd at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg in mid-March. 

The project is being designed by W Architecture and Landscape Architecture of New York and St. Petersburg's Wannemacher Jensen Architects.
