2012 Biennial Downtown Resident and Worker Survey Unveiled
This Morning to a Crowd at Downtown Debriefing Series Forum
Tampa, FL – (February 20, 2013) Tampa Downtown Partnership revealed the results of the third biennial Downtown Worker-Resident Survey this morning. Pat Hill, HCP Associates presented the results to a crowd of approximately 70 people at the Downtown Debriefing Series Forum at The Tampa Club.
As Mr. Hill’s last slide of his presentation succinctly states: “ANNOUNCING: The Arrival of an Urban Living and Working Community!” If you read between the lines of the report data, you will surely see the words momentum, growth and opportunity.
The “headlines” taken away from the survey report are:
A maturing of downtown workers and residents
Satisfaction of both residents and workers continuing to grow
Attractiveness of urban living concept is soaring
Key elements of an urban community are stable or improving (safety/security, things to do)
Lifestyle amenities opportunities (demand for shopping, grocery, living extras)
Tampa Downtown Partnership president, Christine Burdick said of the study results, “We now have scientifically developed data that gives affirmation to the progress realized in Downtown Tampa. This is a result of 10 years of work by so many people; most notably the collaborative efforts between the City of Tampa and the Tampa Downtown Partnership.”
