TA/CPA 21-11 – Floor Area Ratio for Residential in the Community Mixed Use-35, Community Commercial-35, and Urban Mixed Use-60 Future Land Use Categories

Project Overview

The adopted Imagine 2040: Tampa Comprehensive Plan allows developers to utilize Floor Area Ratio (FAR) or dwelling units per acre for residential development in several Future Land Use (FLU) categories.

At the direction of Tampa City Council, the City of Tampa staff has submitted a plan amendment to the Future Land Use Category Matrix, TA/CPA 21-11. TA/CPA 21-11 proposes removing the ability to utilize FAR for single-use residential development in the Community Mixed Use-35 (CMU-35), Community Commercial-35 (CC-35), and Urban Mixed Use-60 (UMU-60) FLU categories located in the South Tampa and New Tampa Planning Districts. Tampa City Council has initiated this policy change to better plan for areas of growth and mitigate the impacts of single-use multi-family residential developments.

The amendment as submitted through Resolution No. 2021-273, which was passed by Tampa City Council, applies to the CMU-35, CC-35, and UMU-60 FLU designations.
