The Pinellas Park Water Management District wishes to be included in
your consideration of suitable flood prone areas under the current
Florida Statute for future "endangered lands" acquisition.
One such area is the so-called "Miele Tract" of 150 acres, plus or
minus, in the northeast corner of the District which, after completion
of the currently proposed 60-acre lake on said property, will provide
a major retention basin for the District. Under the current
construction program, the owner has granted an easement for the
maintenance of said lake, but has retained ownership.
The second area of concern for the District is one that could possibly
provide the nucleus for a marsh land adaption of Sawgrass Lake for the
outlet of Pinellas Park Ditch Number One where same intersects Cross
Bayou. In said area, there is an existing 45-acre lake (Struthers Pit)
amidst a low-lying area with black and red mangroves which could be
connected with said Struthers Pit and a 30-acre lake currently receiving
drainage from Bardmoor Country Club.
Should you agree that the above areas are worthy of consideration, the
District would make its consultant available for staff meetings on the
details of same.
The District also wishes to extend its warm appreciation for the
continuing assistance that Southwest Florida Water Management District
has provided the District since its conception five (5) years ago.
