Service: Community Design & Regional Planning

Highlights:
Contact Staff: Joseph P. Loretta, RLA, LEED®AP, BD+C
 

The Northwest Hillsborough Master Plan was prepared in response to Hillsborough County's need to determine the direction of growth for the northwest 35 square miles of the county, with an anticipated increase of 39,000 residents over the next 20 years. The Master Plan was developed as a team approach with the consultant as team leader for County staff, private individuals as residents, business owners and interest holders, and technical interest holders such as the water management district, private and public utilities, etc. The Master Plan was determined by existing natural and man-made patterns that were inventoried and analyzed to establish physical parameters and by economic indicators to aid in establishing implementation strategies.

The project has three major areas of concentration: a generalized master plan for the entire study area, a neighborhood regulating plan for the most established neighborhood (platted in the 1920's), and a Traditional Neighborhood Development Code overlay district to be implemented to ensure citizen and developer participation and municipal cooperation.
