FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 18, 2018 Public feedback invited on Channelside Drive design alternatives. 

The public is invited to view and provide feedback on the proposed design concept alternatives for Channelside Drive on November 7, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. The community meeting will follow the Channel District Community Redevelopment Agency Citizens Advisory Committee meeting. 

The City‘s project team created the Channelside Drive alternatives using ideas from the May 21, 2018, community meeting for the project as well as discussions with private stakeholders and government agencies over the summer. Existing and future conditions along the project corridor, such as the width of the public right-of-way, were also key considerations in developing the design alternatives.   

The upcoming community meeting will provide an opportunity for the public to view display boards showing different street designs and options for Channelside Drive in the area generally south of East Cumberland Drive to East Kenney Boulevard. The project team will present the proposed alternatives, other options, and study findings that played a role in shaping the alternatives.     

Channelside Drive is envisioned to better serve the neighborhoods within and around the Channelside District Community Redevelopment Area and the district’s numerous visitors. “The City envisions improvements that make traveling the street safer and more comfortable, especially for people on-foot,” said Rob Rosner, the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency manager. “Safety, mobility, accessibility, and vibrancy are the keys to realizing the district’s potential to transform itself into a signature Tampa urban neighborhood.”
