The Stop the Lens campaign is holding a press conference at Vinoy Park on Thursday.
The Concerned Citizens of St. Petersburg, Inc, the sponsor of the Stop the Lens campaign, will be making a major announcement about the future of the campaign Thursday afternoon at Vinoy Park.
Spokesperson Bud Risser will be addressing the media at 2 p.m. Organizers also plan to announce that the campaign has reached the halfway point in gathering the required number of petitions for a citywide vote.
The "Lens" is the pier design slated to replace the existing St. Petersburg Pier. The pier is still on track to close May 31 with demolition beginning in August.
