Largo Introduces "Ask a Planner” Website
LARGO —The City of Largo web site, largo.com, has been updated to include a new interactive feature called “Ask a Planner”. This new web page is a free informational resource for city residents, businesses, and anyone wanting to learn about Largo's Development Review process. The site also contains other useful links to assist applicants in the development review process, including maps, forms and specific property data.
The “Ask a Planner” link is the result of an initiative that came from the creation of the Largo Business Development Review Panel, an advisory group formed with the business community. The group made a series of recommendations on how to improve the permitting process, including ways to make information more accessible to property and business owners.
Carol Stricklin, Largo's Community Development Director stated, “We have staffed a 'Planner-on-Call' for several years and felt that it was time to extend the program to the Largo website. This gives an individual the opportunity to get their questions asked in person or with the launch of the 'Ask a Planner,' they can get assistance while at their office or home.”
The City of Largo was established in 1905 and today there are more than 75,000 residents that call Largo home. The city is located in the middle of Pinellas County and contains the primary roadways that connect Tampa Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Largo has one of the lowest millage rates in Pinellas and has developed such landmark projects as Largo Central Park, the Largo Cultural Center, and the new Largo Public Library.
