E. 131st Avenue PLAT Study

The Transit Development Plan (TDP) major update was initiated by the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) to refine a strategic guide for public transportation in the community over the next 10 years. The TDP represents the community’s vision for public transportation in its service area. A major TDP update also allows transit agencies to outline actions to be taken in the following year and set goals for subsequent years. As a strategic plan, the TDP identifies needs in an unconstrained fashion and highlights service improvements for which currently there is no funding. This major update covers the 10-year planning horizon from FY 2018 to FY 2027. The main purpose of this study is to update the TDP for HART services in Hillsborough County and its connectivity to adjacent areas, as currently required by State law. Upon completion, the TDP will provide a 10-year plan for transit and mobility needs, cost and revenue projections, and community transit goals, objectives, and policies. Imagine 2040 is the Hillsborough MPO’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), updating the 2035 Plan which was adopted in 2009 and last amended in 2011. For urbanized areas to be eligible for federal and state funds, the MPO must adopt and maintain a transportation plan covering at least 20 years. The process of developing the LRTP uses public input to build a list of measures, projects, modes of transportation, and sustainability in transportation for Hillsborough County. The document also includes expected funding sources and revenues to prioritize projects for funding. The Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is developed and updated annually as part of the MPO’s Certification Process to ensure continued receipt of federal funding for transportation improvements in Hillsborough County. The contents of this TIP were developed consistent with requirements from the latest transportation legislation, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The TIP lists the regionally significant transportation projects of the local governments, authorities, and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), which are within the designated Metropolitan Planning Area – Hillsborough County for the upcoming 5- year period. The Hillsborough County Adopted Capital Improvement Program document provides the Adopted Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for a six-year period starting with the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2015 and continuing through the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021. The CIP is the County’s financial plan of proposed capital projects, their costs, and timing over a six-year period in the first year of the biennial budget, and over a five-year period in the second year of the biennial budget. The CIP is designed to meet County infrastructure needs in a strategic and efficient manner. Community sustainability, environmental considerations, and changing conditions demand that the CIP be reviewed and updated annually.
