Please avoid the area of West Chelsea near Clearfield. There was a high-speed chase along at least West Chelsea from Florida Ave across Highland which resulted in a vehicle accident blocks later near Clearfield. The suspect ran away from the scene on foot, and was apprehended by the police. There were no other injuries in the collision. At one point there were about 10 TPD units responding. TPD is now just working the vehicle accident near Clearfield with 2 patrol cars remaining. ... See MoreSee Less

We were all like…

It happened right in front of our house. I was about to walk outside all like 👩🏼‍🦯. Very eventful night!

Elyse Jenkins we only saw tons of police on our street with a guy in handcuffs on the sidewalk - found out later about the high speed chase - he crashed into a neighbor backing out of their driveway on Chelsea. 😢

Christy G Lmt oh we are on Lynn- so I watched them release the dogs and saw him handcuffed. I was about to get the 🍿 out. I have not been able to find a news story on it as of today..

There have been several recent questions about the chain link fence in Rivercrest Park. I reached out to the Director and she sent a Parks & Rec representative out to the park to investigate. The main stretch of fencing along the river was installed due to the removal of the docks. There are some hazardous conditions along the seawall that require the fence to remain in place until the dock project is completed. That project is in process, with a design/build specification being developed. There is not yet a solid timeline for the completion of this project. There also is another fence post identified with a small section of fence. Park staff are going to try and remove this piece immediately.

Never open your door to people you don't know.

My dogs scared him away. LOL! They sound like they are going to murder whoever comes to my door. Most people won't even stand on the porch!

There is a significant and growing depression in the street at 4900 N River Blvd near South Street, which a neighbor asked us to assist in escalating the matter. (See UPDATE in comments) The repair responsibility has been passed on to the Wastewater department for repair. In the meantime, please use caution when driving in that area. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Taylor! ... See MoreSee Less

UPDATE: I followed up again Monday and received the following reply yesterday: 'Thank you for writing to the City of Tampa regarding the Cave-In located at 318 W South Ave. The Mobility Department issued work order 90091 for an inspector to investigate the location to determine an appropriate course of action as soon as possible. We have investigated and it has been determined your request is a Wastewater concern, they have taken responsibility of the Cave-In at the above location as of 07/26/21." The letter went on to say that my contact information was shared and they requested Wastewater to send me a scheduling update. I'll keep you posted as I hear more.

TA/CPA 21-11 Virtual Public Stakeholder Meeting
On Tuesday, May 25 at 6 pm, Planning Commission staff will hold a Virtual Public Stakeholder Meeting to gather input from interested parties on the proposed plan amendment to the Future Land Use Category Matrix, TA/CPA 21-11, submitted by the City of Tampa.

You may also submit a public comment through the online submission form on the project page.

The adopted Imagine 2040: Tampa Comprehensive Plan allows developers to utilize Floor Area Ratio (FAR) or dwelling units per acre for residential development in several Future Land Use (FLU) categories. TA/CPA 21-11 proposes removing the ability to utilize FAR for single-use residential development in the Community Mixed Use-35 (CMU-35), Community Commercial-35 (CC-35), and Urban Mixed Use-60 (UMU-60) FLU categories. Tampa City Council has initiated this policy change to better plan for areas of growth and mitigate the impacts of single-use multi-family residential developments. The amendment as submitted through Resolution No. 2021-273, which was passed by Tampa City Council, applies to the CMU-35, CC-35, and UMU-60 FLU designations Citywide.
