West Tampa CRA Community Advisory Committee

The purpose of the West Tampa CRA Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is to ensure that the interests of residents, property owners, businesses, and other stakeholders in the area are represented in key decisions relating to the CRA Community Redevelopment Plan and the CRA budget for the area. Interested individuals must live or work in the redevelopment area or have significant interest within the area. CAC positions are appointed by the Community Redevelopment Agency, are voluntary, and serve without compensation.
