If you have participated in walking tours, charrettes, public forums, blogs, facebook, or mindmixer, you will want to check out the latest on the InVision Plan!  

A few pages of this document to note: Page 41 - There is a heavy green line starting at Cuscaden Park (Columbus Drive).  This is a cycle track bike trail.  The pages following give some good graphic depictions of this bike trail and how it could be developed.  There are also some exciting images on page 85-91 of Columbus Drive, 21st Avenue and Floribraska.

Background: In 2010, the City of Tampa was awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to develop a corridor master plan for the Nebraska-Hillsborough Avenue Primary Transit Corridor and a Downtown Area Conceptual Master Plan for the urban core. The plans will establish priorities for the future and provide a road map to stimulate economic development, spur community reinvestment and make the central city one of the most desirable places in the nation - all while preserving historic districts and neighborhood character. These plans will be prepared by a consultant that will be funded through the grant received from HUD.

The study area for the corridor master plan is generally an area along Nebraska Avenue from Downtown Tampa to Hillsborough Avenue, then east along Hillsborough Avenue to 22nd Street and extending about 1/3 mile from each side. The study area for the Downtown Area Conceptual Master Plan is an area generally within 2-miles of the center of downtown. The boundaries of both study areas will be defined once the project gets underway.

InVision Video Contest: The city is asking Tampa residents and business owners to submit videos that convey what is special about their neighborhood and showcase ideas for their community's future. Submit videos here and watch the videos submitted so far at our YouTube playlist
