Gibsonton Community Profile

Project Overview

The purpose of the Gibsonton Community Profile is to provide an analysis of market and economic development trends affecting demand for new development and redevelopment in the Gibsonton Community Plan area. The profile will examine current data  for patterns and trends in the overall Gibsonton community, with a focus on the commercial corridors of Gibsonton Drive (main street) and US 41, as well as water- dependent commercial uses along the Alafia River, and the Show Business Overlay District.
