Local Implementation Guidelines

This Compact is an expression of intent and commitment to work together on a countywide level to address the critical need for affordable housing in Pinellas County but acknowledge that the governing body of each Compact Partner retains authority over local decision-making, including, but not limited to, financial and staff resources and land use regulations.


The Compact takes effect upon full and proper execution and remains in place for 10 years and until all Partners agree to terminate. Any Partner may individually terminate its participation in the Compact upon 30 days’ written notice to all remaining Partners. The termination by one Partner shall not affect the commitment of the Compact’s remaining Partners.
