US 19 Redevelopment Plan Wins Two Regional Awards

Clearwater, Fla. - The City of Clearwater’s Planning & Development department is proud to be the recipient of two regional awards that recognize the successes of the US 19 Corridor Redevelopment Plan. The city received the following awards:

- 2012 One Bay Award

- Future of the Region Award, First Place, Development/Infrastructure category

These awards are given by the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council. The One Bay Award is an overall award of distinction that recognizes one project submitted in any of the six "Future of the Region" award categories and exemplifies the One Bay Regional Vision. “Future of the Region” awards recognize projects and programs that exemplify regionalism and outstanding achievement that benefits the Tampa Bay community.

"We're very proud of this remarkable achievement," says Michael Delk, Director of Planning & Development. "This project, once implemented, will help to promote new economic growth and job opportunity along the US 19 Corridor and to Tampa Bay. We look forward to continuing to engage with the community and our stakeholders along this vital transportation route."

The goal of the US 19 Corridor Redevelopment Plan is to strengthen the identity, design, mobility, and competitiveness of the corridor. The city and a consultant team worked with corridor stakeholders to define land use and development strategies to leverage the corridor’s advantages, capitalize on market opportunities, and maximize benefits of planned transit and transportation improvements.
