St. Petersburg officials have scheduled two public meetings to gather thoughts, visions and ideas for redeveloping the 85-acre Tropicana Field site.

At each meeting, participants can expect to learn more about the initiative and the opportunities it presents. They’ll also have an opportunity to ask questions and offer comments. The importance of this site to the future of St. Petersburg can hardly be overstated, officials say. It is a once in a generation chance to create new opportunities for growth, economic development, and an enhanced community.

The first meeting is 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Coliseum, 535 Fourth Ave. N. The second is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Campbell Park Recreation Center, 601 14th St. S. For information or to RSVP, call (800) 317-8449, email, or go to
