Planning Commission Staff, in coordination with the City of Tampa planning staff, related City departments, and external reviewing agencies, have worked together in a collaborative process during the update of the Tampa Comprehensive Plan.
The main challenge with the City of Tampa plan was to transform it from a chapter layout with planning themes spread throughout the plan, to a new organization that will be used by all the plans. There has been substantive public outreach and presentations made to various groups and organizations representing business, development and neighborhood interests. The result is a clearer, more efficient plan, easier to navigate within and understand, offering long-range guidance for the City to succeed at achieving optimal economic prosperity and the best quality of life that can be attained.
Note : If you have submitted a plan amendment or need to review an application prior to Feb 19, 2016, please refer to the 2025 Tampa Comprehensive Plan.
