The Urban Land Institute’s Rose Fellowship program recently conducted a study of the West Tampa area, highlighting challenges and opportunities for the area. The study found that a master plan was needed for the West Tampa area, including North Boulevard and Mary McLeod Bethune Homes. Recently the Tampa Housing Authority, City of Tampa and McCormack Baron Salazar partnered with the “InVision Tampa” planning program to reach out to community stakeholders, local officials and the public to develop a plan for the West River area. The new master plan creates initiatives for: housing redevelopment, land planning, transit, zoning, and economic development and financing.
