Tampa Mayor Jane Castor launched a new website Monday providing information to constituents about the advisory process for her five targeted priorities.
The new landing page includes press releases with relevant information and upcoming meetings. There are two listed as of Monday afternoon, including a Construction Services and Support Advisory Team meeting held earlier Monday morning and a Transportation Advisory Team meeting Monday afternoon at 3.
The website also includes a form to offer suggestions. That form asks for the filers name, address and phone number. Respondents can offer suggestions or comments on any of Castor’s five targeted priorities including transportation, development services, workforce development, affordable housing and sustainability and resiliency.
The page indicates Castor’s staff “will provide progress updates” as they become available.
Castor compiled a series of transition and advisory teams to help target, create and implement policies targeted as top priorities.
The website adds transparency to the transition process.
“Tampa is a city on the rise and with great progress comes great responsibility,” Castor said. “I look forward to engaging with our advisory teams and residents across the city to collaborate on ways we can elevate our city services to meet the increased needs from our departments and look to ways we can tackle Tampa’s aging infrastructure.”
University of South Florida Center for Urban Transportation Research Robert Bertini will head Castor’s Transportation Advisory team and former Tampa City Attorney Julia Mandell who is now with GrayRobinson will chair her Construction Services and Support Team.
