SEMINOLE - Edward and Vivian Lurie took the Seminole City Council by surprise at its Sept. 10 meeting by offering the city a $500,000 grant to build a multi-purpose facility to permanently house the Seminole Chamber of Commerce as well as to provide meeting and storage space for major civic organizations, such as the Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions and Women’s clubs.

The stipulation is that the facility would have to be built on city property and managed by city government.

In an interview, Chamber president Roger Edelman said he’s heard the future home of Waterfront Park, an 8-acre lot located at 10400 Park Blvd. next to Home Depot, is tentatively being considered for the project.

“For a good number of years now Pinellas County has worked with various providers to come to an agreement,” City Manager Frank Edmunds said. “It meets the satisfaction of Pinellas County as well as most, if not all, of the providers.”

Seminole Fire Rescue is currently working under an extension agreement with the EMS Authority. This “long-awaited” three-year contract includes an option to renew it another two years, said Edmunds, and will bring around $187,000 into the city over the three-year period. This is more than the city originally submitted in its fiscal year 2015 budget to the county, “so it’s financially to our benefit,” he added.
