Seminole City Center is proposing to revitalize the heart of the City with a Center that offers recreation, entertainment, dining, shopping and much more in an elegant setting.

The developers plan to turn a nearly-abandoned shopping mall that is a designated Brownfield...into something that will make the City proud, provide local jobs and bring shoppers and tourists from Pinellas, Tampa Bay and elsewhere.

It will be a destination.

The developers are asking the Seminole City Council to request that Pinellas County include businesses or organizations, such as Seminole City Center, locating or expanding in brownfield areas as a possible recipient of benefits under the proposed ad valorem tax exemption program. The Florida State Statutes (Section 196.1995) regulating such programs recognizes that Brownfield conversion is smart and benefits the public.

The Florida Statutes allow for such consideration but Pinellas County's proposed new ordinance excludes it.

Including businesses and organizations locating or expanding in a brownfield area does not guarantee that any project will qualify for incentives…it just allows consideration.

To make Seminole City Center the best that it can be, the developers are simply asking for consideration.

By signing this petition, you are saying that you support Consideration for Seminole City Center.

Thank you.
