Planning and Development team aims to highlight culture/heritage

In 1887, Grover Cleveland is the 22nd President of the United States, construction begins on the Eiffel Tower and the first official Groundhog Day is observed in Pennsylvania.  It’s also the year Pasco becomes a county!

Reflecting on our past is an important part of planning for our future, and Pasco’s planners are dedicated to finding the balance between preservation and development.  That’s why Pasco County’s Planning and Development Department is unveiling our new Historical and Cultural Resources web page.  The page, launched in October for National Community Planning Month,features information for neighbors and businesses in our community.

Resources on the new web page include:

  • Videos highlighting Pasco’s historic & archaeological sites
  • Map of historic places in Pasco County
  • Links to Pasco County landmarks & museums
  • Link to resources for developers with Florida state statutes & Land Development Code info
  • Application for Certificate of Appropriateness pertaining to historic preservation

“Our community has shown significant public interest in protecting our county’s resources,” says Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey.  “As our county grows, we must have awareness of the importance of preserving our historical origins and information.”

Pasco County works closely with organizations like the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation and shares a similar mission of preserving and promoting our diverse architectural, historical and cultural heritage.

On your videos, you state Pasco has been developed since 900. It is well documented that this area was inhabited by indigenous people since before 10,000 BCE. Why not post which historians including the late Jeff Miller worked on for decades.
