Our city is in the process of adding an outdoor fitness area and upgrading the dog park just across the street. There will be access from the Pinellas Trail and the road...now how cool is that?
While we have lost a couple of businesses, the amount of new ones is amazing. These merchants have taken a leap of faith that our town is on the upward trend. Even our home prices are rising! In my development alone, we are down to one home for sale and one in short sale out of about 60 some homes..pretty good, huh?
The cover on the patio at Tarpon Tavern is done and it is wonderful. There are fans over head and the temp is lovely as we found out last Friday when we met friends for drinks and dinner.
I love how the various merchants here in town help each other and work together to keep our town upbeat. Josh White, Tampa Bay Salvage is building the dressing rooms for the Mad Hatter out of salvaged vintage wood from his store.
Zante has opened a clothing and accessory store recently on Tarpon Ave and the corner of Hibiscus...fun stuff.
