Largo considers downtown development incentives
LARGO — For more than a decade, the city has been trying to transform the West Bay Drive area into a bustling downtown district. The sluggish economy of recent years certainly hasn’t helped.
Now that the economy is starting to pick up, Largo officials are preparing to offer businesses and property owners a series of incentives in a renewed attempt to foster the creation of offices, homes and storefronts in the district.
At this point, downtown’s retail sector is outpacing the development of offices and housing.
