  • Which of these statements BEST describe you:?
    • I live near the intersection
  • Based on what you learned from our Project Information meeting or review of the content on, which alternative do you prefer?
    • Larger intersection
  • Please describe any concerns you have about the intersection related to safety or traffic flow.
    • I have lived in Morningside Estates, south of 60 off of Belcher for over 30 years. I can count on one hand the number of "upgrades" this intersections has had.
    • From the presentation it "sounds like" there will be no interventions or upgrades. It's more of a, go big or go home. With a u-turn more traffic problems will be added to Belcher Rd, especially south of 60 passed Druid Rd. None of that was addressed. Nor was the traffic north on Belcher.
    • If the left turns are elimated and moved to a right turn, it will be added to the traffic that will be turning right already which will double the number of cars waiting to turn.
  • Do you have any other comments or questions?
    • No real interventions to improve the intersection's safety have been tried in numerous years. Here are 5 that can be put in place quickly.
    • 1) Widen and paint the crosswalks with yellow in a brick pattern much like in neighborhoods. 2) Add flashing lights to the pedestrian crosswalk signs. 3) Have an all way red light for pedestrians to cross.
    • 4) Add speed limit signs on 60 approaching the intersection with a digital speed on it, like the ones on Drew St. There is only one sign on 60 and is way down near Home Depot. 5) Change the texture and color of the road several hundred feet leading up to the intersection. Very do able interventions.

Open Pinellas has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your response. Either way, Community Feedback will show your response on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Community Feedback will just share your response with Pinellas County staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on Open Pinellas). Registration is free.

Pinellas County has contracted with Community Feedback to monitor responses shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, Pinellas County restricts the number of responses any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Community Feedback enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a response is posted. Community Feedback uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each response (not the address).
  • If a user posts a response that does not meet Pinellas County guidelines for civility, Community Feedback uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Community Feedback will get your contact information. The company is under contract with Pinellas County to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own response on Open Pinellas, you'll be able to confirm that your response was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your response as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Community Feedback is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Community Feedback is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). Pinellas County offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own response after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.
