EOC / FIRE TRAINING CENTER
In May 2014, planning started on the concept of constructing a Fire Training/EOC building for the City. A group of Department Heads and others involved toured several EOCs in Pinellas County to gather information needed to be considered in the design. The site is to be located at 2835 Belcher Road, next to Fire Station 62. This single-story 5,620 GSF building will be constructed to withstand a Category 5 wind speed, and will be self-sufficient for seven days including water, power, and sanitation.
When not functioning as an Emergency Operations Center, the building will be used to hold Fire/EMS training classes, and can be available for other City departments to utilize for training. The facility will house the Fire Division Chief of Training.

THE COURTYARD AT MAIN - Final Approval 11/1/18
Update January 2020: The building permit for Phase 1 construction has been approved and is ready for issuance. The building permit for Phase 2 has been submitted and is under review at this time.
The proposed construction of a multi-use development at the corner of Main Street and Douglas Avenue bordered by the Pinellas Trail on the West, and Monroe Street on the North, to include two levels of residential condominiums (18 units total, 33,602 SF), two levels of commercial/retail and restaurants (25,647 SF), three levels of existing office space (20,178 SF), a four-level parking structure (71,240 SF), and an interior courtyard for both public and private use (7,490 SF).
(Update 3/25/19): The Ocean Optics parking lot that is used for public parking and leased by the City at this time will be closing for construction the beginning of June.
The developers of Courtyard on Main will be closing the Ocean Optics lot to begin staging and prep for the construction of new building and redevelopment of the old Optics building. Suggested alternative parking will be 1 block North on Monroe Street at the Parking Garage.
- The leased parking area contained 41 spaces, these spaces will now be absorbed into the new parking garage on Monroe Street.
- The construction is expected to take 2 years.
- The Dunedin Station Square lot (corner of Douglas & Scotland) which is also leased contains approximately 65 spaces and this parking surface has been improved in April making it a more desirable place to park.
- There are currently no plans for public parking to be incorporated into the new redevelopment project as the Monroe Parking garage was built to absorb the lost leased parking and the City is looking to build another parking garage on property it owns at Louden/Milwaukee.
- In addition the City is always viewing opportunities to improve parking options in the downtown.
