Planning and Development

The City of Clearwater has developed new zoning standards to create a thriving and prosperous corridor along the City’s seven-mile stretch of US 19 and its major cross-streets. As part of this project, the City initiated a land use plan amendment and rezoning of properties that are in the City’s jurisdiction and in the areas shown on the maps below. A property’s land use and zoning will not be changed if it is outside the project boundary or is in unincorporated Pinellas County.

US 19 Clearwater Corridor Redevelopment Plan Documents

The US 19 Corridor Redevelopment Plan is a guiding document that summarizes the current context of the corridor and sets forth an implementable vision to strengthen the identity, design, mobility, and competitiveness of the corridor in the region. The strategies identified in the Plan fall primarily under the purview of the City but also state the need for coordination with area businesses and various governmental entities. The project was funded through the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program, and builds upon goals and strategies contained in Clearwater Greenprint.

The US 19 Corridor Redevelopment Plan won two regional awards from the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council in 2013, recognizing the importance of the Plan and its strategies in repositioning the US 19 Corridor in the City, as well as adding to the number and diversity of quality places in the Region.
