Tri-City Special Area Plan

 
PROJECT OVERVIEW

Welcome to the information hub for the Largo Tri-City Special Area Plan (formerly referred to as the US19 /Roosevelt Blvd Special Area Plan). The proposed planning area is centered at the intersection of two primary corridors (US Highway 19 and Roosevelt Boulevard/East Bay Drive) and is approximately 900 acres in size. A special area plan (SAP) is a planning tool the City will utilize to effectively coordinate land use and development within the identified planning area. This plan intends to create an attractive, sustainable and economically vital urban destination that incorporates a higher degree of mixed uses, density and accessibility to multiple modes of transportation.
