Give Input on Drew Street by Completing Survey, Attending Community Workshop
The city of Clearwater is reaching out to gather input about Drew Street as part of the Drew Street Complete Street Concept Design.
The city of Clearwater would like people who use Drew Street (vehicle drivers, bus riders, walkers and bikers) to fill out a short survey by visiting myclearwater.com/CompleteStreets.
The city also invites the public to attend the community workshop on Tuesday, May 22 at the new Clearwater East Library, 2465 Drew St. Visit anytime between 6 and 8 p.m. The meeting will be in an open house format. Presentation will be at 6:15 p.m.
In 2017, Forward Pinellas awarded the city of Clearwater a grant for the Drew Street Complete Streets Concept Design.
Complete Streets means streets that are safe for all modes of transportation, including people who drive all types of vehicles, ride the bus, walk and bike.
The city is now developing its first Drew Street Complete Street Concept Design from North Osceola Avenue to U.S. Highway 19.
The city’s primary goals for the Drew Street Complete Streets Concept Design are:
- Balance accessibility for all modes of transportation within the corridor
- Enhance safety, comfort and function for all users, especially pedestrians and bicyclists
- Encourage economic revitalization and reinvestment along Drew Street and within surrounding neighborhoods
The city has also started work on a Citywide Complete Streets Implementation Plan which will include preparing a Complete Streets policy for the city, creating a process for prioritizing future Complete Streets projects and developing an implementation action plan.
