Urban Service Area

According to  Hillsborough County the goals of the Urban Service Area are to:

  • provide and preserve a choice of lifestyles in Hillsborough County
  • construct cost-efficient urban infrastructure such as roads, schools, public safety, etc.
  • preserve environmentally sensitive land
  • reinvest in existing urbanized areas that might otherwise be neglected
  • create higher-density land-use patterns that encourage a mix of use and patronage of multi-modal transportation.

Why then is the County pushing to extend the Urban Service Boundary along I-4?

Potential developers there will never pay for expensive new infrastructure. Somehow it will fall to taxpayers to build roads and water systems if we don’t say NO!  now.
