Clearwater focus will be strategy for U.S. 19 corridor


U.S. 19 corridor strategy will be workshop topic

Conditions along the U.S. 19 corridor around Clearwater have changed dramatically over the past several years. The city is creating a strategy intended to make the corridor more attractive, successful and sustainable. Officials will present a plan at a workshop on the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 14, at Holiday Inn Express, 2580 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. The workshop is from 4:30 to 7 p.m., with a presentation starting at 5 p.m. The recommendations will address the future of property fronting directly on U.S. 19 as well as property with long-term development potential within a half-mile of the road. The city conducted a market analysis, land use assessment study and focus group sessions to identify challenges faced along the U.S. 19 corridor from Belleair Road north to Curlew Road. The roadway's redesign, changes in access and circulation patterns, and the economic downturn have affected property owners, businesses and residents.
