The Town 'N Country Community Plan became effective January 7, 2005. The Community Plan area is bordered by Pinellas County to the west, Tampa Bay to the south, Tampa International Airport to the east, and Linebaugh Avenue to the north. It encompasses the visions and strategies related to the adoption of the Town ‘N Country Community Plan and its Boundary Map. The area is home to more than 75,000 culturally diverse residents within 37 square miles. The population in this area is expected to exceed 100,000 people by the year 2025. The community has developed the Town ‘N Country Community Plan to reshape this diverse and maturing area to be an economically stable, family-friendly place.
The vision was to advocate the creation of town centers that serve as community gathering places. The community supports the expansion of protected lands, seeks better connectivity in train networks, and endorses the creation of recreational opportunities for young and old alike.
The Town ‘N Country Community Plan encourages redevelopment of older commercial centers and desires a strong business sector that contributes to the community and provides meaningful employment opportunities. The plan supports non-residential construction in a pedestrian-friendly, new urban design that contributes to the community’s sense of place. The community would like to see a reduction in traffic congestions, an increase in transit service, and will take steps to improve the appearance and safety of primary roadways.
The community wants the property values of homes and businesses to increase. They desire proactive enforcement of housing and commercial codes. They are committed to strengthening the community and business associations to work together on furthering common goals.
