“St. Petersburg will be a city of opportunity where the sun shines on all who come to live, work and play. We will be an innovative, creative and competitive community that honors our past while pursuing our future.”

StPete2050: A Vision Plan for St. Petersburg Available

StPete2050 began as a citywide conversation about the future of St. Petersburg. The result is a vision plan organized around ten priority community themes that were identified during the engagement process. StPete2050 will help inform future decisions and guide plans, programs, and services throughout the city and in support of its sustainable, resilient, and equitable growth over the next 30 years.

The StPete2050: A Vision Plan for St. Petersburg was created with the input of thousands of St. Petersburg residents. We sincerely thank everyone who participated in the process. The StPete2050: A Vision Plan for St. Petersburg and supporting reports are now available, see links below.

We ask you to review the plan and provide your feedback. This can be done by taking the Third Community Survey or by providing comments using the form at the bottom of this page. (If you need assistance viewing the plan, please contact Derek Kilborn).

Presentation to City Council Committee of the Whole: January 28, 2021

Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations Update - 2021
Next year, we will begin the process of updating the City of St. Petersburg Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations to incorporate the StPete2050 community themes and goals as articulated by the community during the StPete2050 outreach process. Public engagement will continue through this next implementation phase, with an emphasis on virtual options due to continued COVID-19 restrictions. We will continue to post updates and virtual events for next year on this webpage.

Progress and Opportunities Report – 2025-2026
We anticipate that a report will be provided every five years or so, to monitor actions and implementation progress on our vision.

Future Visioning - 2035-2040
Communitywide long range planning and visioning efforts are typically initiated every 15 to 20 years, and it would be anticipated that this vision be revisited in that timeframe.
