See Ava in Horan Park on Saturday, April 17th and Learn About Right Whales!

This is Ava, a North Atlantic right whale. She represents a critically endangered species of whales which are in peril of extinction with fewer than 400 animals left in the wild. These magnificent whales swim down from the North Atlantic waters down to the southeastern coasts of Georgia and Florida to give birth to their calves every year, but they face many dangers from humans, including vessel strikes and entanglement in fishing gear.  

Thank you Clearwater Marine Aquarium for bringing Ava to our community!


The City of St. Pete Beach is now using See Click Fix for residents to submit issues to the city.  See full details HERE.


Sewer Project Update

The north end of the sewer project is estimated to be completed by mid-April 2021.

The southern end of the project is estimated to begin by April 19th, 2021.  This portion is located on Gulf Blvd. and will create road closures and increase in traffic delays in the area.

 

The first construction zone will be from the 37th Avenue to 44th Avenue area.  The second construction zone will be from 44th Avenue to 52nd Avenue. The third construction zone will be from 52nd Avenue to 55th Avenue. We will experience traffic congestion and delays while traveling on Gulf Blvd.

Each portion of this construction will take approximately 2-3 weeks.

Introducing Misty, our resident water expert here in St. Pete Beach.

While we are surrounded by water, Misty knows we have to conserve as much of this precious resource as we can.
