Public invited to comment at Pier meetings

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida -- Five meetings to help determine what becomes of the Pier are scheduled around the city in the next few weeks to give the public a chance to sound off.

The 21-person Working Group, appointed by Mayor Rick Kriseman in May, includes residents from neighborhoods, businesses and stakeholders from previous discussions on what to do with the Pier plan.
