Keeping Historic Driftwood Special
First Public Hearing October 9 at 2 pm at City Hall
St. Petersburg has a collection of special neighborhoods with a sense of place that can be felt as soon as one enters the neighborhood. One such neighborhood is Driftwood, located on Big Bayou just south of 22nd Avenue South. It is a neighborhood filled with history - historical, cultural and archaeological. Read below to find out about the efforts to make sure Driftwood stays special by becoming a local historic district and how you can help!

Benefits of Local Historic District Designation
A group of Driftwood
property owners, with assistance and support from Preserve the 'Burg,
have filed a landmark district application for their historic
neighborhood. A public hearing will be conducted by both the city's preservation commission and city
council. The first hearing before the preservation commission is scheduled for October 9 at 2 pm at City Hall. You can help to make sure the district is approved by sending in
your message of support - it's simple to do by clicking on the link below. Thanks for doing your part! Ask your family and friends to do so too!
