The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has published the ULI Advisory Services Panel's recommendations, made in October, for developing a vision for Tampa's downtown urban core.

Mayor Bob Buckhorn requested an ULI Panel to assist in developing a vision and master plan for the city’s urban core, and the ULI conducted the Advisory Services Panel in Tampa from October 9 to 14, 2011.

"This report gives me a working blueprint on how to best jumpstart community investment and stimulate new development in downtown. To truly be a city of the future, we must re-energize our urban core," said Mayor Buckhorn. "I appreciate the ULI panel for assembling this report and look forward to implementing the best ideas we discussed for Tampa."

The report outlines Tampa's opportunities and challenges, as well as development strategies and best practices for implementation of the recommendations.

The ULI Advisory panel was composed of economic development, land use, real estate development, and government operations experts from around the world who volunteer their time to help communities solve difficult development or related public policy problems.
