Pinellas County Commissioners approved the contract for the sale and purchase of Palm Harbor Resort as part of its commitment to the public to provide additional boat ramp spaces.
The property at 2119 U.S. Alternate 19 N. in Palm Harbor has 16 boat slips, a boat ramp and six cottages on approximately five acres. The purchase cost is $3.81 million, with $2 million to come from the North County Boat Ramp Capital Improvement fund and revenues from boat ramp parking fees. The remainder will come from reallocated Capital Improvements funds. The property is zoned Commercial Recreation and will be managed by the Pinellas County Culture, Education and Leisure Department once the purchase is complete. The county has an initial 45-day due diligence period to do inspections on the property. During this period, the county can opt out based on the findings of those inspections at no cost to taxpayers.
At their regular June 20 meeting, Pinellas County Commissioners approved the purchase of the Belle Harbour Marina in Tarpon Springs for $3.6 million. Belle Harbour has 18 wet slips and 110 dry storage units. The 45-day due diligence on this property is under way.
