View the Sociocultural Data Report (SDR) for Brandon Main Street. The SDR contains demographic information and trends for Brandon Main Street from 1990 to 2015, a summary of existing land use within the community, and a list of facilities. A demographic profile for Hillsborough County is also available at the end of the document.

The proposed amendment area is located generally northeast of the proposed Crosstown Feeder Road and Lakewood Drive. This plan included a change to the future land use designation of part of the Plan’s boundary from Residential 12 (RES-12) to Community Mixed-Use 12 (CMU-12).

 One provision of the plan considers removal of the areas within the community plan boundary if it is determined that the BMS plan has not been sufficiently realized.  This includes a large part of the area also being proposed for amendment from RES-12 to CMU-12.  The plan evaluation and appraisal process are tools that are always available, but would be inconsistent with the long-range vision to completely remove parts of the area rather than restudy them.

The Brandon Main Street (BMS) Community Plan identifies a physical and social heart for the Brandon community that is intended to attract people of all ages and provide a civic identity and image for its residents. The BMS plan recognizes the effect that recent and programmed infrastructure improvements (i.e., State Road 60, Brandon Parkway, County Regional Service Facility, etc.) will have upon this area of Brandon in the near future. The BMS plan strives to link the land-use pattern with the transportation improvements by promoting a more urban form of new development and redevelopment. The BMS plan envisions multiple uses, including open spaces, government and civic uses, shopping, employment, housing, and other uses being established.  Development and redevelopment are intended to be sensitive to the surrounding neighborhoods and will incorporate an interconnected transportation system that prioritizes pedestrian and transit features.

The plan was further implemented by adoption of development requirements in the Land Development Code (LDC) which are outlined in detail below:
