Creating a community transportation plan
Since mid-February, the GO Hillsborough team has been hosting a series of 36 open house style workshops in or near your neighborhood to:
- understand your transportation needs and realities
- explore options that make sense in your daily life
- help you weigh in on some hard choices as we move forward
Each session is designed to be highly participatory and interactive and will build upon the previous one. Citizens are invited to any and all of these meetings. Each meeting will have a “catchup kiosk” for those of you who may be unable to attend or just need a reminder about the discussions and complex issues that surround transportation. RSVP for upcoming meetings. Also, join GO Hillsborough on Facebook and Twitter to share your ideas. There’s even a specially designed I-Neighborhood Project App, where you can pinpoint your comments anytime. In addition, there are four upcoming telephone town hall meetings, or leave a comment 24/7 at 813/274-6922.
The GO Hillsborough team has expertise in all modes of transportation, but no preconceived notions or plans for Hillsborough County; rather they are working with citizens to create recommendations that reflect consensus around a COMMUNITY TRANSPORTATION PLAN that you can support and help implement – a plan that will make a positive difference in your life. GO Hillsborough is the part of the Transportation for Economic Development (TED) initiative, led by all seven Hillsborough County Commissioners, the mayors of Plant City, Tampa and Temple Terrace, as well as the chair of the HART board, and referred to as the Policy Leadership Group. These elected leaders have come together to study, develop, and create consensus around a comprehensive community mobility plan that ensures continued quality of life and economic prosperity now and well into the future.
