CLEARWATER — The City Council is moving forward with buying a vacant 1.4 acre lot across the street from City Hall owned by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

City Attorney Pam Akin said Tuesday that a purchase contract will be presented for approval at the regular meeting March 16.

The purchase will coincide with city plans to sell the current City Hall site at 112 S Osceola Ave. to a developer for residences, retail or other uses. A 10-year, potentially $55 million downtown revitalization plan unveiled this month encouraged redevelopment of underused parcels along Osceola Avenue to help stimulate the waterfront and promote economic development.
