Greater Ridgecrest Area

As part of a city-wide initiative, the Friends of Ridgecrest invited the City of Largo and Pinellas County to participate in an informational Annexation meeting. Residents used the opportunity to ask questions to City and County staff ranging from what will happen to the Greater Ridgecrest Master Plan to how fees and taxes would change if Ridgecrest was annexed into the City. The City has put together a list of the popular questions that were asked during the meeting and our answers for informational purposes. Mayor Woody Brown prepared a letter related to the meeting with information on how to contact him and the City Commissioners.
