What’s a “Listen First” Meeting? Your voice is an important part of planning for mobility, growth, and redevelopment in Tampa. The purpose of a Listen First meeting is to listen to your ideas and comments prior to developing plans, making decisions, taking action and building projects. With your ideas guiding the way, we will develop a plan for Tampa’s future that brings to life the vision of all of Tampa’s neighborhoods – from Port Tampa City to New Tampa, from Forest Hills to Westshore Palms.

Listen First Meeting Map and Neighborhood Areas


Ten, one-hour virtual meetings will be held for different neighborhood groups across the City between February and April 2021 with one meeting being hosted in Spanish, open to all Spanish speakers throughout the City. These “Listen First Meetings” are a first step in identifying challenges and opportunities facing the City and developing solutions for the future.

The meetings will introduce upcoming citywide planning efforts, provide updates on transportation projects currently under development in the City, and collect input on current challenges and opportunities for transportation, growth, and development now and in the future. This will be a great opportunity for city residents to get engaged in the planning process.
