The City Planning Department fosters a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach in guiding growth, development, and redevelopment of the City of Tampa. The Department focuses on citywide planning initiatives that support the Transforming Tampa’s Tomorrow (T3) Strategy and that enhance economic value, quality of life, community, and resiliency.
SEA LEVEL RISE STUDY
The City of Tampa has been awarded a $75k grant from The Florida Resilient Coastlines Program (FRCP) to study the impacts of sea-level rise on our community and to identify key recommendations for resilience planning. With the grant, the City Planning Department will complete an analysis of current land use, zoning, and building regulations and recommend strategies to prepare for projected sea-level rise impacts.
The City Planning Department is partnering with the Florida Center for Community Design and Research at USF, the Hillsborough County Planning Commission, and other agencies to complete the project.
On Tuesday, November 24, the City Planning Department will host an on-line webinar to kick off the planning effort for the Sea Level Rise Regulatory Assessment. This is the first of three community meetings. At this meeting, you will learn about the project’s goals and objectives, the future sea-level rise projections, and the approach that will be undertaken to identify and mitigate the risks to sea level rise in our community.
