ST. PETERSBURG, Fla (WFLA) — St. Petersburg City Council members voted to approve a rezoning plan aimed at increasing density throughout the city.
Dozens of residents participated in public comment regarding the proposal during Thursday night’s council meeting. The city’s planning department shared the rezoning efforts have been in the works since 2017.
Rezoning changes allow nearly 2,900 single-family residences to become up to four residential units. The multi-unit housing would be located within 175 feet of main thoroughfares.
