WHAT IS THE GATEWAY AREA?

The Gateway is approximately 30 square miles and is a primary economic engine of Pinellas County and the Tampa Bay region. The general boundaries for this master plan effort include: Belleair Road on the north, Starkey Road on the west, 62nd Avenue North on the south, and Tampa Bay on the east.

WHY THIS STUDY?

The Gateway Master Plan is about creating a vibrant, livable area that continues to attract jobs and includes multiple options to get to work and other destinations safely and conveniently.

WHY NOW?

Major investments have been made in the area on highway improvements. A well thought-out plan is needed to leverage those investments and foster more efficient land use patterns that enhance the Gateway’s economic viability while reducing congestion and supporting investment in transit and safe bicycle and pedestrian connections.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

The master planning process is approximately 18-months long and includes multiple opportunities for area residents and stakeholders to be engaged in developing a shared vision and strategies to guide future investment.
