In 2019, Mayor Castor and the Transportation Advisory Team released five strategic recommendations to address a number of mobility related issues facing the city of Tampa. These recommendations include,
- Implement strategic transit projects
- Focus on trails and greenways as transportation options
- Adopt Vision Zero as a Citywide policy
- Reinvent urban parking & mobility
- Enhance neighborhood engagement
Tampa M.O.V.E.S. (Mobility, Opportunity, Vision, Equity, and Safety) is the City of Tampa's new transportation plan to address these recommendations. The new plan will cover all the ways to get around the City. Once completed, Tampa M.O.V.E.S will outline transportation objectives and initiatives for the next 30 years, with an emphasis on memorializing the City’s strategic vision and engaging the public to meet the City's mobility goals.
Listen First Meetings
Ten, one-hour virtual meetings were held for different neighborhood groups across the City between February and April 2021 with one meeting hosted in Spanish, open to all Spanish speakers throughout the City. These “Listen First Meetings” were a first step in identifying challenges and opportunities facing the City and developing solutions for the future.
The meetings introduced upcoming citywide planning efforts, provided updates on transportation projects currently under development in the City, and collected input on current challenges and opportunities for transportation, growth, and development now and in the future. This opportunity allowed city residents to engage in the planning process.
