imagine 2040: Tampa Comprehensive Plan

2016 Silver Level Comprehensive Plan Standards for Sustaining Places Recognized Plan

The Imagine 2040: Tampa Comprehensive Plan is designed to shape the City’s future for generations to come. Tampa is a great city to live and work in, offering diversity and a rich urban life that nurtures residents’ creativity and their entrepreneurial spirit. The Plan builds on these qualities and outlines a collective vision for sustaining and enhancing an attractive and safe city that evokes pride, passion, and a sense of belonging – a city where everybody cares about the quality of life. The Plan also focuses growth and change to specific parts of the city while strengthening and protecting residential neighborhoods from development pressure. Using innovative strategies and planning techniques, the Plan ensures Tampa will prosper well into the 21st century.

We are currently in the process of updating the Tampa Comprehensive Plan to the 2045 horizon. Visit the project page to learn about the update and to get involved.
