The Heart of Pinellas by Clayton Swartz. - Julie Busch Branaman
The City of Largo truly lives within its means. It doesn't issue bonds. It doesn't go into debt. It saves, and then spends a rarity in most public and private circles. The city puts a premium on quality of life, providing a wide array of recreational options for its residents, young and old. An active public library and a busy cultural arts center help host a full slate of special events and recreational activities. Pinellas County's third-largest city with 75,000 residents, Largo stands out as one of the most affordable housing markets in Florida, and, as a result, many families buy their first homes here. Largo's economic base boasts a wide variety of manufacturers.
