2035 Plan News

Post Referendum Analysis

Following the November 2010  referendum in which voters rejected a tax for a wide array of transportation improvements, the MPO decided to revisit the long range plan and explore why people voted the way they did.  A county-wide penny sales tax was assumed in the 2035 Plan as the way to pay for major parts of the plan, including rail and transit expansion.  This project examines other ways to pay for transportation, how the 2035 Plan could be slimmed down and retooled, what has been done in other metropolitan areas, and what voters in Hillsborough County are willing to pay for.

An Inter-agency Working Group made up of representatives from a variety of county and city agencies and members of the public serves as a steering group for this analysis.
