Provide MORE access for vehicles to eliminate or reduce congestion and gridlock. Loosing road lanes on major road ways like East Bay/West Bay to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians is a VERY wrong approach! That VERY few people who might benefit make it MUCH worse for those traveling to the beach and/or living in the area. Whoever came up with this lame idea should be made to live on West Bay in Belleair for years!

Pinellas County has many cultural offerings in the arts. We have good art museums, St. Pete Opera and a fantastic Florida Orchestra in addition to many community theaters, plays and libraries. We also have some of the best beaches in the country although development along the beaches has drastically changed the small-town beach environment to a commercial enterprise. (Shame so much building has been allowed).

One major thing that needs improvement is public transportation and synchronized traffic lights on the major roads. Traffic has increased many times over, and roads are so congested it is very frustrating to drive places. In addition the lights are so long which causes traffic backups that it may take two or sometimes three traffic light rotations to get through ONE light. It is ridiculous to have to sit for 2.5 minutes for a light to change. Busses are so infrequent that it takes hours to go from one place to another. Light rail is needed and buses to get people from home to the rail is necessary. The longer we go without, the more expensive it will be to implement these things.
