The US Army Corps of Engineers wants to hear from YOU about the future of the Pier. Please write a letter and email in support of the Pier! Destroying the current pier and replacing it with the Lens with out a vote is not the right thing to do! Even worse, the impact will be felt by the entire county and those of us not residing in St. Petersburg have no say even if it does go to a vote.
Use this request for letters as your opportunity to express your concerns as a resident of Pinellas County!
