Chartered as a municipality in 1915, Clearwater provides a long history of beauty. When Spanish explorers arrived in 1528, they learned that the inhabiting Indians called the area “Pocotopaug,” meaning “clear water.”
Diversity is the key to Clearwater’s business community – tourism, manufacturing, healthcare services and trade all contribute to the economy. A strong school system and higher education opportunities provide a well-paid, educated work force to serve area businesses.
By taking full advantage of the area’s many strengths and resources, residents and visitors will find North Pinellas County a better place to live, work and play.Copy provided by Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce
