Community Engagement Meetings

The Florida Center for Community Design and Research (FCCDR), in cooperation with the Florida Department of Transportation District Seven, City of Tampa, Hillsborough County, HART and Hillsborough Planning Commission, is inviting community representatives from City of Tampa Home Owner Associations residents and civic and business associations near the Downtown Tampa Interchange (I-275 at I-4) to participate in a third round of Community Engagement meetings regarding the Tampa Bay Next project.

The focus of the 3rd round of meetings is to create drawings and visually communicate design strategies that the community has identified (from the first two rounds) addressing neighborhood needs. Local Agencies (City of Tampa, Hillsborough County/Planning Commission/MPO and HART) will work in coordination with FDOT to provide options for neighborhood enhancements from the input of the community meetings.

Individuals may attend the meetings as observers to the process and participate through worksheets provided at the meeting. Audience seating will be limited.
