|Fowler Avenue is the area between 127th St. to the north; 52nd St. to the east; 109th St. to the south; and I275 to the west.|
|Tampa, FL (December 6, 2022) – The public is warmly invited to provide input on the Fowler Avenue Comprehensive Vision Study. Fowler Avenue traverses through both Hillsborough County and City of Tampa jurisdictional boundaries, each subject to their respective regulations. This has created a development environment characterized by inconsistent development patterns along the corridor. This study will evaluate the land use, transportation, and community characteristics, along with feedback from the community and businesses, to create a cohesive vision plan for redevelopment and future development along Fowler Avenue.|
Fowler Avenue serves as a main gateway to many of Tampa and Hillsborough County’s important employment, education and research, medical, and residential areas. The corridor connects organizations like the University of South Florida, Moffit Cancer Center, and the Florida Hospital with areas ripe for redevelopment, like University Mall. The opportunity to create a cohesive vision for this area serves to benefit everyone who lives, works, studies, and visits the corridor.
The Hillsborough County City-County Planning Commission has scheduled two open houses, one in person and one virtual, for the public to engage with the planning team, ask questions, and provide feedback:
