The Tampa Bay Partnership's advocacy efforts are an important and effective tool to promote common goals and address the critical issues impacting our community. We're supporting projects of regional significance, increasing legislative engagement at the local, state and federal level, advancing a regional legislative agenda, and positioning our leaders as a powerful force behind policy decisions at home, in Tallahassee and in Washington, D.C.
In 2016, the Partnership focused on fostering opportunities in three key areas:
Protect and advance the regional assets that power our economy and create a world-class community.
Invest in impactful transportation solutions offering regional connectivity, fixed infrastructure, and mobility options that facilitate the movement of people and commerce throughout Tampa Bay.
Strengthen the key competitiveness factors that drive high-wage job creation and capital investment within our region.
