LARGO – The Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the City of Largo to host the City of Largo 2017 Outlook and Business Reception on Thursday, February 23 from 5 until 7pm. This is a unique opportunity for community leaders to learn more about the vision of Largo and the impact on area business. This new program is proudly presented by the Government Advocacy Panel (GAP), a division of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and will be held at the Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive.
Mayor Woody Brown and City Manager Henry Schubert will be the evening’s featured presenters along with Department Directors from Public Works, Engineering, Community Development and Environmental Services.
“The City of Largo would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for this opportunity to connect with local leaders and share some exciting plans for the future of Largo” said City Manager, Schubert. “This will be one of the first public events to introduce to the community projects planned in anticipation of the Penny for Pinellas renewal.”
The presentation will be filled with information about current city projects including enhancements to Trotter Road and 2nd Street SW along with upcoming projects including sanitary sewer improvements and sidewalk planning.
