Reopen the St. Petersburg Pier

by Robert Neff


Mayoral Candidate Rick Kriseman defeated Mayor Foster in the November 2012 election. During his inaugural address, Mayor Kriseman announced the fence would be removed and was removed the subsequent week.

REMOVE THE FENCE! Let residents use the area around the Pier and the restrooms!

Watch as Robert Neff asks St. Petersburg Mayor Foster to reopen the St. Petersburg Pier - Robert Neff Questions Mayor Foster Regarding The Pier 10.17.13

Fact: The bridge and the apron (Area around the Pier) are good until 2015.

Subject: Remove the fence around the Pier!

Suggested Message: 

The fence around the St. Petersburg Pier is an eyesore and needs to be removed. Tourists and visitors see this and question the City's judgment. Removing the fence would go a long way to reducing negative sentiment toward our city and its leaders. Your decision to keep this closed is a reflection upon St. Petersburg and us.

REMOVE the fence. OPEN the restrooms! OPEN the parking meters!

  1. The meters would offset the cost for the any additional security guards than the two who are already in place.
  2. This would attract more traffic to the area and both the Dolphin and Pelican parking would provide income.
  3. In addition, this should increase traffic to the St. Petersburg Museum of History, Dolphin Tours, Island Ferry and the Kayak Livery.

We can do better and need to provide a solid impression - This is our City too!
