Future Land Use

Current to Quarterly Update: March 01, 2023

The jurisdictional Future Land Use data is a generalized depiction created and intended to be used in coordination with Hillsborough County Property Appraiser’s Parcel data. In cases where a land use boundary falls within a right-of-way or water body, those boundaries have been brought to the approximate center of that feature. In order to determine proper land use category acreage, GIS analysis must be performed utilizing current parcel data and water boundaries.
