In a significant setback for Tampa Bay's third-largest city, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium has decided not to move downtown after all.

The small aquarium near Clearwater Beach had proposed relocating to a significantly larger, modern $68 million facility that it intended to build on the bluff overlooking Clearwater Harbor. City officials had hoped the move would help revive Clearwater's sleepy downtown.

However, the aquarium is now abandoning that plan. Instead, it has decided to stay put and expand and upgrade its cramped quarters on Island Estates, a largely residential island in the Intracoastal Waterway.
