A community that cannot move is a community that cannot grow!
Our community needs a wide range of solutions to address traffic congestion and a lack of transit options. We need leaders who will ensure our spending is reflective of our community's needs and who engage with the community to bring about results.
As Tampa grows, we need to make sure that growth in benefiting our current residents, not pricing them out of the city.
We need to make sure Tampa is a city that your children and grandchildren are able to afford to come back to and buy a home.
We need leaders who will work to increase Tampa's housing supply and supply of affordable housing, provide solutions for delivering access to affordable nutrition, and fight to expand our mass transit system.
Tampa has experienced unprecedented growth and more is to come—our best days are ahead of us as long as we have leaders who are bringing the energy and wherewithal we need.
We need smart community planning to guide and encourage the growth in sustainable ways—revamping zoning throughout the city, reforming parking minimum requirements, and pushing for an expanded permitting department.
We must connect entrepreneurs and Tampa's innovation and technology community and support our business incubators and accelerators to make Tampa a vibrant place to start and grow a business.
Tampa's neighborhoods are the heart of our city.
We need to focus on potholes, parks, sidewalks, and streetlights. We also need to ensure new development in our neighborhoods matches and enriches the neighborhood's character.
An Accessible Tampa
“The average person will outlive their ability to drive by 10 years,” Godwin said. “And we are one of the leading destinations for veterans, many of whom have service-related disabilities—it is our responsibility to ourselves, our neighbors, and those who served our country to make this city accessible to everyone.”
An Affordable Tampa
“4 out of 5 Americans will live near poverty, without work, at least once in their lives. The vast majority of us will struggle with affordability at least once, or our children and family will. We must address transportation, housing and nutrition availability in Tampa."
