Preserve 102

Petition to Designate 102nd Avenue North in Seminole a Constrained Corridor The parties named below -- each living on or utilizing facilities adjacent to 102nd Avenue North between Seminole Blvd. and 137th Street in Seminole, Florida -- petition Pinellas County and the City of Seminole to formally designate this area of 102nd Avenue North a Constrained Corridor, precluding expansion of this roadway in any manner. The proximity of this roadway to major recreational sites, including the Pinellas Trail, Walsingham Park and the Walsingham Equestrian Park, stand as solid justification for this action. Every day, large numbers of pedestrians, skaters, bicyclers and equestrians frequent the roadway and adjacent arteries, while the volume of traffic on the specified area of 102nd Avenue North only becomes heavy during rush hours (i.e., 7:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. and again from 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m.). Creating a four-lane divided highway or even a three-lane road with a center turn lane (options that are being considered by the County), will merely invite additional traffic, which, when combined with those pursuing the above-referenced recreational activities, will establish an extremely dangerous situation for everyone. Those of us who live on the specified area of 102nd and in adjacent communities have adjusted our commutes around the peak traffic times and do not believe the County\'s proposed expansion options are necessary or safe given the surroundings.

We have three kids and a dog and thought it would be the perfect area near the parks, close to the beach, close to the office in St Pete, etc. Since we discovered this was happening, we have decided to look in other cities. Making 102nd a 4 lane would undoubtedly lower all property values in that area including the half million dollar homes we were considering. Whoever thought this was a good idea should think again. You have just cost yourselves this taxpaying family and probably others who didn't take the time to tell you.
