VISION AND MISSION:
The City Planning Department performs multiple planning efforts throughout the city. City Planning fosters a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach in guiding growth, development, and redevelopment of the City of Tampa. The Department focuses on citywide planning initiatives that support the Transforming Tampa’s Tomorrow (T3) Strategy and that enhance economic value, quality of life, community, and resiliency.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:
CURRENT OPERATIONS AND INITIATIVES:
- The Palma Ceia Commercial District Plan will address development issues along a 0.5-mile stretch of Bay to Bay Boulevard (one block north and south) from Himes Avenue to the Selmon Expressway.
- The Main Street / West Tampa Neighborhood Commercial District Plan will address development issues along a 1-mile stretch of Main Street from North Armenia Avenue to North Boulevard.
- The City of Tampa has been awarded a $75,000 grant from The Florida Resilient Coastlines Program (FRCP) to study the impacts of sea-level rise on our community and to identify key recommendations for resilience planning. With the grant, the City Planning Department will complete an analysis of current land use, zoning, and building regulations, and recommend strategies to prepare for projected sea-level rise impacts.
- The City Planning Department, in partnership with the Mobility Department, is embarking on a planning process to develop a long-range vision for the City of Tampa.
Operating Budget Analysis
Revenues earned by this General Fund department do not fully fund the department’s operations. General revenues provide the remaining funding.
During FY2021, City Planning separated from the Development and Growth Management Department, as a new department. FY2021 only reflects the department's budget and projections for a portion of the fiscal year. Personnel Expenses and Operating Expenses increase in FY2022 due to including the department's funding requirements for a full fiscal year.
