St. Pete mayor to unveil new Pier plan

Posted: Updated:
ST PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) - St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman will announce a new plan for the Pier at Spa Beach Park at 1 p.m. today. On Twitter, Kriseman calls the announcement, "All sides of previous Pier debate uniting." The pier has been closed for almost one year. Voters shot down the Lens design in August.

"We need to get it right and we need to get it done," Kriseman told News Channel 8.

Originally, Kriseman hoped the pier would be done at the end of 2015, now he's predicting 2017-2018. Kriseman worries about making the same mistakes as former Mayor Bill Foster. Foster took a lot of heat for not keeping people informed on the Pier progress and presenting the Lens without community input.

News Channel 8 will be at Kriseman's announcement and will update
