CLEARWATER – Clearwater council members approved a joint participation agreement between the city and the Florida Department of Transportation to conduct a master plan study for the Clearwater Airpark.

The study is the first since 1999 and is required by FDOT, said Marine and Aviation Director Bill Morris.

“Since that time, we’ve done two updates to our airport layout plan and we’ve proceeded with several projects,” Morris told council members during a meeting Feb. 16 at City Hall.

The comprehensive plan will study the short-, medium- and long-term development plans of the airpark with the goal of creating a framework for future airport development that is both cost-effective and environmentally and socioeconomically responsible.

“With this project as a master plan, we are going to incorporate an updated airport layout plan,” Morris said.

The study is estimated to cost $100,000, with FDOT contributing $80,000 and the city providing the remaining $20,000.

In other news:

• Council approved a vehicle use agreement between the School Board of Pinellas County and the city through for use of county school buses at a cost of $1.50 per mile plus $29 per hour, for a total estimated cost of $40,000.

• Council approved the establishment of a foreclosure property registry, procedures for registration and enforcement and annual registration fees.

According to city staff, more than 700 properties are actively in foreclosure in the city and 256 are owned by banks or lending institutions. In an effort to prevent such homes from becoming neglected or unsecured during the foreclosure process, the new registry will help determine the party responsible for maintenance of the property.

Any unoccupied or vacant property subject to the ordinance must also maintain a visible posting on the structure with the name and all-hour contact number of the mortgagee’s local agent.

A property registration and the associated $200 fee is valid for one year.
