The City Planning Department has created a new show, “Planning Today for Tampa’s Tomorrow”. We invite you to attend and learn about planning projects that will shape Tampa’s tomorrow.  The City Planning Department coordinates many planning efforts and this show was created with the goal of providing ongoing and consistent communication to you, our valued stakeholders. We want to keep you informed of what’s happening in your community.

In this first episode of “Planning Today for Tampa’s Tomorrow”, City Planning Director, Randy Goers talks about the City Planning Department, the idea for a monthly planning show and he’ll run through some of the major planning initiatives that are underway (or soon to be) that will add value to the City.  He’ll also share which planning initiative he believes to be the most important to our community. 

This show is virtual. We hope you can join us and learn more about our City’s planning projects on the horizon.
