LEALMAN, Fla. — Pinellas County is giving residents the opportunity to share how they believe transportation in the Lealman area can be improved.

City officials said they are developing the "Linking Lealman" plan to improve how everyone moves in the Lealman area — whether by car, bicycle, bus, mobility device, or foot.

"We need to know what you think is most important to improve transportation in the Lealman community," officials said in a press release. "A range of improvements for all users in Lealman are being considered, including: sidewalks, bicycle lanes, turning lanes, medians, crosswalks, multiuse paths, street connections, signals, lighting, bicycle racks, benches, and signs."

The "Linking Lealman" plan's goal is to develop a plan that can be implemented through the Pinellas County Capital Improvements Program (CIP).

Residents are being asked to use the following survey to rank their top transportation priorities and then provide their input on how and where specific types of improvements are needed:
