SEMINOLE - Ed and Paula Ludwig, who live on 86th Avenue in Seminole, have long noticed cars ignoring the speed limit on their roadway.

The speed limit is 25 miles per hour, but Paula said she wouldn’t be surprised if most cars travelled down the avenue at around 40 mph, she told the City Council at its June 14 meeting.

“We realize you all don’t live there, but we’re there 24/7,” she said. “He works from home. We see it constantly.”

SEMINOLE - Seminole City Council, in a unanimous consensus at a June 8 workshop, agreed to reconsider the site of the planned Waterfront Park at 10400 Park Blvd. as the home of a future civic building that will house the Seminole Chamber of Commerce.

Just a week later, at its June 14 meeting, consideration of the site continued to move forward. The council unanimously approved a $4,250 expenditure from its contingency fund to conduct a geotechnical engineering study at the site. Deuel Associates based in Clearwater will coordinate the work, which will be conducted by BJ Rock in Tampa.

Several councilors pointed out that the studies would need to be done at that site either way, as Waterfront Park plans called for a storage structure.

SEMINOLE - There’s been a flurry of new activity behind-the-scenes at the Seminole City Center, which is currently being built at the site of the former Seminole Mall, City Manager Ann Toney-Deal told the City Council at its June 14 meeting.

As of June 14, the site plan was approved for outparcel 1, which is located on the northwest corner of the property where the Seminole Chamber of Commerce was formerly located, she said.

“We’re very excited about what may be going there,” Toney-Deal added. “It’s one of those things they don’t know for sure yet, but [the site’s developers, North American Development Group, are] very upbeat about the prospects for that location.”

SEMINOLE - After years of anticipation, the city of Seminole broke ground at the site of Fire Station 32 June 13. Construction of the new building will begin this week.

The new station, which will be located at 9199 113th St., will replace the original building that was constructed by volunteers in 1969. This location services not only the northern portion of the city, but areas of unincorporated Pinellas County as well.

Once completed, likely in January or February of next year, the state-of-the-art facility will boast modern safety features and conveniences. Notably, the new construction will be able to withstand a Category 5 hurricane.

SEMINOLE - In a unanimous consensus, the City Council agreed to reconsider the site of the planned Waterfront Park at 10400 Park Blvd. as the home of a future Chamber of Commerce building during a June 8 workshop.

Previously, the permanent office space for the chamber was slated for vacant, city-owned land on 113th Street just north of 84th Avenue.

The project will be funded by a $500,000 donation from the Edward J. and Vivvian E. Lurie Charitable Foundation. The Luries presented the grant to the city during the spring of 2015. Shortly thereafter, the council approved a memorandum of understanding between the city and the Luries regarding the project.
