Chamber/City of Largo Breakfast Reflections
Last week’s State of the City of Largo event offered a look into several projects and programs destined to have a positive impact on businesses and residents. Titled “Community Built on Partnership,” it was presented by the Chamber’s Government Advocacy Panel (GAP) and hosted by Pinellas Technical College Clearwater Campus. Among the presentations was a virtual tour of the new Horizon West Bay complex on West Bay Drive. It will include Largo City Hall in addition to commercial and public gathering space. Groundbreaking will be later in the year. Thanks to Largo Mayor Woody Brown and city representatives for developing the program and our many business and community guests for attending.
