Request for Proposals for Fowler Avenue Vision Plan

The Hillsborough County City-County Planning Commission is seeking proposals from qualified planning consultants to study, develop and provide a comprehensive Vision Plan for the redevelopment of the East Fowler Avenue Corridor. Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa requested that Planning Commission staff coordinate a visioning study for Fowler Avenue, culminating in a Fowler Avenue Vision Plan (Vision Plan). Fowler Avenue traverses through both County and City jurisdictional boundaries each subject to their respective regulations, resulting in inconsistent development patterns along the corridor. Achieving a cohesive vision for the corridor requires identification of policy gaps, acknowledging points of agreement, leveraging existing projects, and coordination between jurisdictions and other agencies.
