About Community Engagement and Partnerships

The Community Engagement and Partnerships Department serves as the Mayor's main liaison to the neighborhood associations and as their voice at City Hall.  This division also works with all community partners and private entities to promote and build positive relationships that will showcase the City of Tampa as a desirable living and working environment.
