Today’s Old Northeast neighborhood was the first established neighborhood within the City of St. Petersburg. Its amenities, proximity to downtown and parks, and coherent and traditional sense of neighborhood continue to be its strengths nearly a full century after it first became a residential area. An article in the St. Petersburg Times (Jul 1, 2001) described the neighborhood in these words:


Approximately six years ago, the City began an evaluation of the ordinance that defines the process for preserving the City’s historic resources, including its eclectic mix of early and mid -20th Century neighborhoods. Beginning in 2010, the City held public workshops and forums in which all stakeholders participated in developing the proposed revision that will be read and voted on by the City Council on July 23, 2015.

Here are the key points about the proposed revision to the ordinance.


The Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood Association sends out email announcements (max 3 per month) on several topics. You don’t have to be a member or resident to receive these announcements; we encourage anyone with an interest in the neighborhood to sign up and stay informed about the neighborhood.


One of the enduring characteristics of the Historic Old Northeast that people pointed to when our Neighborhood Plan was in development is the mature tree canopy, which provides beauty, shade, ecological impact and shelter for wildlife. The HONNA Board allocated funds to purchase and plant 15 30 gallon, 8 foot specimens this Spring 2015 in order to keep our canopy intact and growing!
