Urban Land Institute Advisory Services Panel to Visit Tampa - Panel to assist with developing a vision for the city's urban core
Tampa, FL October 7, 2011 - The Urban Land Institute (ULI) will be conducting an Advisory Services Panel in Tampa October 9 to 14. The panel is composed of economic development, land use, real estate development, and government operations experts from around the world who volunteer their time to help communities solve difficult development or related public policy problems.

The City of Tampa has requested an ULI Panel to assist in developing a vision and master plan for the city’s urban core. This plan will guide redevelopment of the downtown area. "It will give us the road map to stimulate economic development, spur community reinvestment, and make the central city area one of the most desirable places in the nation,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn.

A public reception is being held for all interested citizens on Monday, October 10, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Straz Center for Performing Arts, 1010 North W.C. MacInnes Place in downtown Tampa.

On Friday, October 14 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. a public presentation will be made by the ULI panel of its findings and recommendations. This presentation will take place at the Tampa Convention Center, located at 333 S. Franklin Street, in Room 24.

The public is invited to attend the reception and the briefing. If you cannot attend the events but would like to offer suggestions, you can go to the City’s web site www.tampagov.net to fill out a public comment sheet (PDF). The sheet should be faxed or emailed to the Growth Management and Development Services Department at (813) 274-7706 by Tuesday, October 11.
