The City of Tampa and the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) of the City of Tampa, (collectively the “City”) hereby give notice pursuant to Part III, Chapter 163, Florida Statutes, of their request for submission of proposals from qualified and experienced applicants to update and amend the East Tampa CRA Strategic Action Plan (SAP). The Sap update shall include recommendations and initiatives that guide the CRA Board and East Tampa Community Advisory Committee in the allocation and expenditure of CRA Funds.
The East Tampa Community Redevelopment Area (“CRA”) adopted a Community Redevelopment Plan for the East Tampa CRA in May 2004. On November 12, 2009, the Community Redevelopment Agency Board approved the East Tampa Strategic Action Plan. Now, it is time to update the Strategic Action Plan (“SAP Update”) in the East Tampa Community Redevelopment Area (ETCRA).
The SAP Update will be a five-year plan, with one-year increments, which identifies specific programs/investments for the public and private sectors. The plan will detail a budget based upon anticipated tax increment funds, and other potential funding sources, and prioritize the expenditure of such funds. The Plan will also address and provide recommendations and strategies for encouraging private initiatives in the ETCRA.
Finally, the Action Plan will follow the goals and objectives of East Tampa Community Redevelopment Plan, adopted May, 2004, as required by Part III, Chapter 163, Florida Statutes.
