In I 992, the City of Tampo and the Florida Department of Transportation agreed to jointly lund the prepararion of the first mulri modo/ transportation plan ever prepared for Tampa's Central Business District (CBD}. Because transit was to be a significant component of the Plan, the Hillsborough Area Transit Authority was brought in to the study to pamcipote in coordination and management.

The establishment of goals and objectives to guide the Downtown transportation system must emphasize transportotion issues and concerns of the community. In general, community transportation issues include various social, economic, environmental, aestheti c and transportation service conditions affected by changes and/or additions to the transportation system. Mony d i v erse local gool s and obje c t i ves mus t be sat i sf ied in o rder to deve lop on effec t ive, i n tegrated multi-moda l Downtown tro n sporto t ion system. T h ese gool s and objecti ves i nclude such issues os: ma i nta inin g and strengthen ing the Downtown; stimu l ating economic deve l opment ; re d ucing traffic congest i on; ensuring that Downtown focilitie$ o r e occe>sib l e to all segm e nts of the regi on's popu lace; and making t h e Downtown o n attract ive p lace t o l ive, work and ente rtai n. Goals and objectives may differ in i mportance to v a r ious $egment$ of the population ond parti cu larly to individual s r esponsibl e for mak ing decis ions affecting those s eg ments.

The objectives of the Transit Component of the Downtown Transportation Master Plan are to: Create a transit system within the Downtown that is coordinated with other transportation components -parking, roadway and pedestrian -and serves the full range of Downtown demand. Identify shuttle routes which serve three purposes: -Move employees from parking structures to places of employment and back (peak hour demand). -Move tourists from the Convention Center, The Florida Aquarium, Harbour Island, the Arena and the Performing Arts Center into Downtown, to Ybar City and between attractions (special schedule). Provide for intra-downtown movements for visitors and employees (oHpeak during day). Develop a shuttle system that will support development and redevelopment goals for the Franklin Street Mall Retail Development and for Ybor/Garrison Channel Tourist attractions. Develop MultiPurpose Transit Terminals which will be a focus of intermodal connections for parking/pedestrians/transit and retail and personal services such as day care. Coordinate Commuter Rail, Light Rail and High Speed Rail with other transit elements and the parking system. Downlo\vn Tompo P ion

LEGEND: Exis1ing Public R:lr!

At the outset of the study, both the Management Committee and Citi:z:en's Advisory Committee identified "quality of life" issues as being an important consideration in developing the Transportation Master Plan. The Pedestrian Component of the Plan was expanded to include streetscape recommendations in recognition of this emphasis. Unlike citi es that must deal with problem caued by hig h pedestri a n vo l umes, Tampa needs to f i nd ways t o i ncrease pedestr ian acti vity, lunnelling conventionee r s and vis i t ors to the Aquarium up into the downtown and particularly t o the Fra nklin Street Mall. Realizing this n ee d t o provide a reason fo r t ourists, v isi t ors and emp l oyees to go t o and stay i n the Dow n t own, the Fran k lin S treet Ret ail Corrid or Ta s k Fo rce, appoi nted by Mayor Sandra F reedman, has deve loped a revitalizati on wotegy far the Fr anklin Street Mall T hi t ra tegy rec ommends o program to manage the com m on elements o f the public space i n o way that c reates a clean, safe and festive otmosphere .. .t o oHroc t people make t hem fee l com fo rta ble and suppo r t a p leasant s hopp i ng experience" The exi sting Tampa Streetscape O r d inance was a l ocus of the workhop T his O r dinance, adopted i n 1989, was put i n place t o achieve u n i form ity and high sta ndard of qual ity for s idewalk design a n d l andscaping The Ordinance cla ssi f ies all streets within the CBD as Pedestr i a n Connectors, local and B oulevard Stree t s, or Govern ment District Streets Each of t hese class i f ications has a specific set of requ ire ments lor d esig n, p lant i ngs, materi a l s and the l i ke.

Fhe obiectives of the Conge$tion Management Component are to: encourage alternatives to the single occupant vehicle; encourage more efficient use of the existing transportation system through carpooling, vanpooling, bicycle and transit use, and parking controls. Over the pos t severa l years, traffic d emand has greatly exceeded the grow1h in new roadway capacity. This hos r esuhed in congested roadways throughou t the C i ty.ln add ition, the r e has been great concern over tho ambient air qua lity of our city and wh i l e our area p robably will be r ec l assified as on c Hainmen! area during 1993 and 1994, there still is tremendous pressu r e to put p rog r ams and tra nspor tation contro l measu res into p l ace that will con tri bute to atta inmen t status and mai n taining t ha t s tatus.
