Hillsborough County, FL: Citizen Engagement & Transportation

Posted by Infra on Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Our community is facing some tough choices related to the very complex issue of transportation. Quite simply, we are experiencing significant shortfalls in funding just as our population is expanding and our congestion is rapidly increasing, putting greater pressure on our already declining transportation system. The reality is that unless we come together and deal with this right away, our quality of life — our time with friends and family– and our economic stability are threatened.

Whether you’ve lived here your entire life or moved here and raised your family, Tampa/Hillsborough County is your community, and we need your voice. Beginning in mid-February 2015, our GO Hillsborough team will host 36 open house style workshops in or near your neighborhood to understand your transportation needs and realities, to explore options that make sense in your daily lives, and to help you weigh in on some hard choices as we move forward. Each of these sessions is designed to be highly participatory and interactive and will build upon the previous one.

The GO Hillsborough team has expertise in all modes of transportation, but no preconceived notions or plans for Hillsborough County. Ultimately, we are – together – creating recommendations that reflect consensus around a COMMUNITY TRANSPORTATION PLAN that you can support and help implement – a plan that will make a positive difference in your life.

Please join us at any and all of these meetings. (Each meeting will have a “catchup kiosk” for those of you who may be unable to attend or just need a reminder about the discussions and complex issues that surround transportation.)

Also, join us online on Facebook, Twitter and our specially designed I-Neighborhood Project App, or call in during one of the four telephone town hall meetings we will host or leave a comment at 813-274-6922. The GO Hillsborough team will be frequently updating and checking in on all of our social media, so please check in often.

    The “Street Names” sign has been missing for some time at the corner of HERITAGE CREST DR and SAMANTHA LN in Valrico, 33594.
    This has caused several delivery companies and the Hillsborough County Paramedics to respond to corresponding numbers on SAMANTHA LN when their actual destination was supposed to be HERITAGE CREST DR.

  2. Wayne Johnson says:

    Southbound VALRICO RD needs a right hand passing lane in front of the Grace Christian School. Southbound vehicles making a left turn into the school at he beginning and end of the school day cause considerable traffic delays.
