Transportation
Transportation has long been a top priority for the City of Tampa. The Transportation Advisory Team will examine how we can meet the transportation needs of our growing city. This includes finding ways to minimize traffic congestion, bring smart and accessible transit solutions to Tampa, and efficiently allocate All for Transportation dollars once they are available.

Development Services

Workforce Development
The Workforce Development Advisory Team is dedicated to fostering a strong and talented workforce in Tampa. This includes supporting programs that increase school attendance and graduation rates, define pathways through higher education and technical certification programs, and promote career readiness.

Overall, the goal of this advisory team is to foster a healthy workforce in Tampa and make it easier for professionals to find career opportunities across industries.

Affordable Housing
The Affordable Housing Advisory Team is dedicated to securing housing Tampa can afford. This team will focus on the residential needs of our growing city, to ensure affordable housing options remain available for our citizens. This includes developing mortgage and down payment assistance programs, securing state and federal grants, and identifying the needs of our neighborhoods.

Sustainability and Resilience
The Sustainability and Resilience Advisory team is committed to finding ways to build a stronger, greener, and more resilient city.
