Project Overview and Scope
The Environmental and Sustainability Section serves to update the Conservation and Aquifer Recharge Element (CARE) of the Unincorporated Hillsborough County Comprehensive Plan. The Environmental and Sustainability Section provides a framework for the conservation, use, and protection of natural resources, wetlands, lakes, soil conservation, Cockroach Bay Aquatic Preserve, Hillsborough River, and alternative energy.
The purpose of the Environmental and Sustainability Section is to provide a plan and policy direction for the preservation, conservation, and management of the natural resources of Hillsborough County. The Environmental and Sustainability Section’s role is to maintain or improve the County’s environmental and natural resources and its citizens’ quality of life in anticipation of the region’s population growth.
The language was developed via a cooperative effort with staff from across Hillsborough County government, and incorporates feedback from stakeholders including the Environmental Protection Commission.
