Yesterday Tampa Mayor, Bob Buckhorn, along with the Urban Land Institute unveiled "The Riverfront Project" . Once again the Mayor's focus on the Hillsborough River is proving to be the correct course of action for this City & its residents. The development will open River access to many city residents, which is currently lacking in my view. Yes, there is a question of "How" to move current residents living in the N. Blvd. Housing units but at its age most residents may be looking for an upgrade.
Just think, with the Riverwalk almost done and the Riverfront Project the City is "Finally" starting to become more City like. Yes, this project may not start for some time but if Mayor Buckhorn sticks with it, I believe he will, Tampa will development this project. Can you imagine going to the Farmers Market on early Saturday Mornings? Or watching local High Schools & College's Crew practices/races? I can! Not that Liverpool/Syracuse, NY is Tampa but the my old Hometown used its Lake, Onondaga, has a City & Town Center. Parks, Boating, Historical Center/Erie Canal and Shopping ending at the city's edge. Onondaga Lake is nice, family and commercial it is the focal point of the area.
Good Job so far Mayor Buckhorn! Keep it up! Do lose Focus- TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE A BETTER TAMPA.
