TAMPA, Fla. (June 1, 2020) – For the second time, HCP concluded a community sentiment study for the Westshore Alliance to gather data from residents and workers in the district with ideas on how to improve the area. The Westshore Alliance, founded in 1983, is a member-based organization comprised of business and community leaders with a mission to promote, shape future growth, and foster prosperity of the rapidly growing Westshore Business District.
The online survey developed by HCP captured quantitative feedback from those living and/or working within the district’s boundaries on how they perceived the district at present and what they looked for in the future.
“The district has continued to evolve quite rapidly through the large–scale development projects that included residential, commercial, and retail space,” said Sean Coniglio, Managing Partner of HCP Associates and a leader in developing the study. “Now the district is in the planning phases of how best to link the residents and workers in the district to make it more conducive to moving around without relying on a personal vehicle as the only mode of transportation.”
The responses identified the following as needs in the district: traffic flow and circulation, walkability, greenspaces, trails for walking and bicycling, as well as grocery stores.
