A Call For Environmental Project Ideas

News Image

Pinellas County is currently accepting public input for project ideas to restore the local environment and economy using anticipated federal funds allocated to Pinellas County related to the 2010 BP oil spill.

Projects must be within the county or benefit the county and/or its adjacent bay, coastal and Gulf waters and the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. Submitted ideas may be developed into project proposals by county staff. The county also plans to accept project proposals for funding later this year.

Citizens can submit ideas, review county-held public meeting information and read a summary of the Restore Act provided by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection online.
