The City of Clearwater has a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop a transformative vision for its downtown waterfront, which is a beloved civic asset. To do so, planners determined early on to involve the community in every aspect of the project. The outcome -- Imagine Clearwater -- is a community vision for the Downtown Clearwater waterfront.

Find out how Imagine Clearwater won the support of the community through creative outreach strategies in this FREE program co-presented by PRSA Tampa Bay and the Suncoast section of the American Planning Association Florida. This program is FREE, but registration is required as space is limited.

You will learn how:

  • Strong public outreach tactics by the City of Clearwater throughout the planning process were instrumental to success
  • Community involvement proved critical to winning approval by 76% of Clearwater voters in the referendum required for changes to Coachman Park as part of the new waterfront plan
  • City officials are managing the challenges involved in moving from vision to implementation

Panelists:

  • Joelle Castelli, Public Communications Director, City of Clearwater
  • Diane Jones, APR, President, DJ Public Relations
  • Michael Delk, Planning and Development Director, City of Clearwater
  • Gina Clayton, Assistant Planning and Development Director, City of Clearwater

Following the event, please join us for a happy hour and networking at Mellow Mushroom, 2630 Gulf To Bay Blvd in Clearwater.
