How is the Penny building a better Pinellas?
The Penny has supported thousands of projects across Pinellas County and the 24 cities since 1990. The County’s Strategic Plan and your input guide the use of all County funds, including governmental capital investments, which are primarily supported by the Penny.
Below are highlights of the past investments the County has made with its portion of the Penny. Check with your city to learn more about how the Penny is being used in your community or see our interactive Accomplishments Map for examples of key projects across the County.
How could the Penny be invested in the future?
A renewed Penny would fund community investments for another 10 years (2020-2030) aimed at the following key areas guided by our Strategic Plan and your input: improved roads, bridges and trails for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists, water quality and flood prevention, safe, secure communities with enhanced equipment and facilities, preserving parks and our environment and other infrastructure projects that build a better community to live, work, play and do business.
This spring, the Board of County Commissioners and city partners will be setting priorities for how the Penny could be invested. Learn how to get involved and share your input during this process.
