Many Bloomingdale and Riverview residents drive to downtown Tampa each day for work. Others spend time at museums, concerts or sporting events. But Tampa's Mayor is hoping a new plan will entice more people to visit downtown, or even pack up and move into the city.
With the hope of connecting major arteries of Tampa Bay to create a pedestrian-friendly feel and encourage small business growth, Mayor Bob Buckhorn, urban planners and a consulting firm discussed a plan called InVision Tampa on Tuesday.
"There's been a resurgence in downtown Tampa in ways you can't even imagine," Buckhorn said.
