The Hillsborough County Planning Commission and Transportation Planning Organization both require population, employment and other demographic and scenario-based projection data to the year 2045 to facilitate their state and federally mandated work efforts. In addition to supporting the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Model development, the data also supports the missions of other agencies including the Hillsborough County School Board, HART, Fire/EMS, Parks and Recreation, and Utilities.
The Planning Commission and TPO jointly obtained the services of a consultant (Cambridge Systematics, Inc.) to develop and evaluate alternative potential growth scenarios, support a facilitated scenario evaluation process, and develop a preferred “hybrid” population/employment projection scenario to support the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and other planning functions of the TPO, Planning Commission and other agencies within the county. The Consultant used the CommunityViz Scenario 360 software as a scenario modeling platform.
