TARPON SPRINGS – The Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce officially moved into its new home.

One door down from its old one.

That trek was worth it, however, because the chamber’s new location, at 1 N. Pinellas Ave., is twice as large as the space next door, according to President and CEO, Jean Hungiville. It sits at the busy intersection of Pinellas and Tarpon avenues, putting the chamber in a prime location to serve visitors of Tarpon Springs.

“We’re in a much more useable space, a much more professional office space and a much more visible space,” Hungiville said after the June 26 ribbon cutting. “We plan to turn this building into a landmark, complete with a mural by Chris Still on the side.”

Christopher Still is a painter based in Dunedin who has a gallery in downtown Tarpon Springs. He has been a member of the Florida Artists Hall of Fame since 2010.

“We’re getting the chamber back to where it was a few years ago,” Hungiville said. “We’re excited.”
