In August Tampa !p began inviting Tampa’s mayoral candidates to record one-on-one interviews addressing the priorities our organization has identified for the area. Tampa !p is dedicated to building a world-class live, work, study, play, and stay innovation district in the area bounded by I-275 to the west, I-75 to the east, Bearss Avenue to the north, and Busch Boulevard to the south. The priorities that we believe must be addressed to achieve our goal are Transportation, Business Development, Job Growth, Place Making, and Community Engagement.
