Reducing Floods Through Stormwater Management
Historically, the City of Pinellas Park has experienced flooding due to it’s proximity to the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. As such, our experience and focus has been with stormwater management in mind. Therefore, our efforts to reduce flooding extends beyond that of infrastructure improvements. Service to the community includes providing information regarding flooding and flood protection at the Public Library, on the City's website, and through our offices that deal with flooding, the primary being the Community Planning Division.
If a citizen needs flood information regarding their property, the Community Planning Division has trained personnel that will help them. Whether it be answering a question about the Base Flood Elevation in the neighborhood or providing a Letter of Determination. City Staff is ready to help. No appointments needed. Just call us at 727-369-5613, or visit us at:
6051 78th Avenue N
Or you may visit us online at our home page. You can even contact us by email, just have the question or request emailed. When requested, staff has visited properties to help determine the problem and identify options.
Flood protection is serious business and it can not be accomplished without everyone’s participation.
