East Tampa Community Redevelopment Area
East Tampa is ideally situated between Downtown, the Port of Tampa and the University of South Florida and offers convenient access to three interstates and Tampa International Airport. The community continues to attract private investment throughout the 7.5 square-mile area, especially along Hillsborough Avenue where the new Walmart Supercenter and other retail outlets are under construction. The City remains committed to investing in significant public safety, aesthetic and infrastructure projects, such as “Bright Lights, Safe Nights” and the recently completed “Clarence Fort Memorial Trail”.
The CRA Façade 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 the banner for program information and application.
