PINELLAS PARK - In a 3-2 vote at its Nov. 18 meeting, the City Council declined to waive $75,000 in land development fees for the developer of an affordable housing project at 7875 49th St. N.

The 72-unit project, Wisdom Village at Pinellas Park, proposed by the Chicago-based Turnstone Development, a not-for-profit 501©3 development corporation, would be similar to The Lodges at Pinellas Park, located at 6781 Park Blvd., said Michael Hartman, representing Turnstone at the meeting. Hartman played a hand in the construction of The Lodges, which is owned by a different developer, when it was first built four-and-a-half years ago. He’s no longer affiliated with the property.

“From what I’ve heard from everybody, (The Lodges) seems to be doing quite well and has been a positive thing for the city,” Hartman said. “We’re coming back to Pinellas Park because we find that The Lodges is not only full, but has an extensive waiting list.”

“Basically, if you’ve been keeping up with some of the trends around Pinellas County, we’re in danger of losing our historic treasures,” he said. “Hopefully we can keep some of these treasures from falling under the wrecking ball.”
