East Tampa Community Redevelopment Area

East Tampa Community Redevelopment Area

East Tampa

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”.
