In Vision: Tampa Streetcar Brainstorm #1 says
The City of Tampa is set to hold the first of three public meetings to discuss “Invision: Tampa Streetcar,” a public transportation feasibility study for the extension and modernization of the current streetcar system.

The March 7 meeting will be a community brainstorm session where residents will hear about the planning process and then provide input back to the planning team about the purpose of the project and about the needs of the downtown Tampa community for transportation options.

During this project, the planning team will look at a wide range of corridors and technologies, including the possible use of autonomous transit vehicles, and will recommend feasible alternatives and funding strategies. The first phase of Invision: Tampa Streetcar is expected to be complete in early Summer 2017. If the results of the feasibility analysis are positive, a second phase will be initiated to select a preferred alternative and refine plans and strategies.

The public outreach meeting schedule for Phase 1 of Invision: Tampa Streetcar is as follows:

Tuesday, March 7 – Community Brainstorm #1 (Focus on Purpose and Need)
Tuesday, April 4 – Community Brainstorm #2 (Focus on Technology and Alignment Alternatives)
Tuesday, May 2 – Results Roundtable

from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Tampa Bay History Center, 801 Old Water St., Tampa, FL, 33602 and the results roundtable will be located at the HCC Ybor campus at 2001 N. 14th St. (Republica de Cuba) in the Ybor.

Free parking is available in the Blue Parking Lot, adjacent to the History Center.
