Drew Park's close proximity to Tampa International Airport, Hillsborough
Community College, professional sports and recreational facilities, and major
employers, ideally positions the area for redevelopment activity. As one of the
few remaining areas within Tampa with relatively affordable industrial land and
space, the area continues to attract residents and businesses. Courtesy
Automotive Group opened a new Hyundai showroom and Electric Supply completed a
35,000 square foot facility expansion. The Drew Park Streetscape &
Beautification Master Plan is being used to guide improvements to enhance the
appearance of the neighborhood. These projects are keeping redevelopment
momentum moving forward and encouraging private investment.

The Drew Park Streetscape and Beautification Master Plan will guide future
public realm improvements for years to come. The plan was approved by the
Community Redevelopment Agency on November 10, 2011, and was the result of a
collaborative effort of the Drew Park CRA Community Advisory Committee, Drew
park stakeholders, City staff, and consultants from Bayside Engineering and
David Conner & Associates.
The goal for the Master Plan is to create a new identity and sense of place for
the Drew Park community. The main features include community gateway markers,
streetscape amenities, park and open space, public art, and preserving Drew
CRA Facade Improvement Program provides property owners with
financial assistance (grant) to improve the appearance of their properties in
designated areas of Tampa's Community Redevelopment Area (CRAs). Click on
