Clearwater Beach 42 Slip Dock Approved

Pinellas County commissioners voted Tuesday to approve the city of Clearwater’s request to create a 42-slip commercial dock in a boat basin off Mandalay Channel. The project is being constructed in a city partnership with JMC Communities of St. Pete, the developer of the Sandpearl hotel and condo project on the beach’s gulf side. JMC Communities will pay for the construction of the dock. 27 slips will be leased to the Sandpearl, and 15 slips will be available to the public.
