City Strategic Plan

WHAT IS THE STRATEGIC PLAN?

The City of Tarpon Springs is embarking on a yearlong process to develop a vision for the City and a strategic plan to make that vision a reality! The City has teamed up with the University of South Florida Institute of Government and Saint Petersburg College Collaborative Labs to facilitate this project, write and present the final strategic plan to the commission, and to assist with implementation. This new strategic plan will be organized around a few broad-reaching focus areas and will serve as a guide city budgeting, capital project planning and program development over the next 3-5 years. The Strategic Plan will be complimentary to, and coordinated with, the City's Comprehensive Plan, which has a much longer planning horizon of 20 to 30 years.

    I am unable to join on Thursday, the 20th. Would it make sense to join on the 12th or is the second meeting more applicable to participants of the first meeting only? Thanks so much!

    CaseySmith asked 1 day ago

    Yes, please join us on Feb. 12th!  Attendance is not required for the first workshop in order to participate in the second workshop.  Thank you!

    Are they going to extend the US 19 expressway from Clearwater to Tarpon Springs? The traffic accident situation can no longer be tolerated

    Jalfan asked 3 months ago

    Hello! Thank you for your inquiry.  I have inserted a weblink below that may be useful in answering your question. It is an FDOT site with all US 19 Projects identified and whether they are completed, under construction, or in design phase.  If you look at the "Design Projects" tab on this site you will see projects identified up to Lake Street in Tarpon Springs (just south of Tarpon Ave).  Each project has an information page and contact information.

    Hope this is helpful for you!
