The Bayou Business District
Pasco County is one of Florida’s largest counties. The most western part of the county, West Pasco, contains New Port Richey and Port Richey. Both cities are waterfront property on the Gulf of Mexico. They share Pithlachascotee River, or “Cotee River”, that flows from the center of the state to the Gulf.
The City of Port Richey is the largest commercial port in Pasco county. The Bayou Business District is in the heart of the City on the waterfront along the Cotee River and Miller’s Bayou. The Bayou Business District is located along the east and west sides of the US 19 Corridor within the City of Port Richey.
The hospitality industry is largely represented in the district with restaurants and bars, followed by specialty shops, retail stores, automotive, marine and recreational boating related industries. There are many private residences within the business district which provides a good mixture of land use. Also within the district are, natural public green spaces, fishing piers and a boat ramp.
