2014 Workforce-Resident Study

Biennial Study Background – Beginning in 2008, the Tampa Downtown Partnership has called upon a third-party research group to conduct biennial studies of Downtown Tampa, and its residents and workers. The study and its survey findings have helped steer such game changing initiatives in downtown as river accessibility, the outdoor market, the Glazer Children’s Museum, the Tampa Bay History Center, the extension of the TECO Line Streetcar System, the reopening and of the profoundly enhanced Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, the addition of dog parks, new parking meters that accept credit cards, new directional signage, new restaurants and retail, and extended retail offerings and operating hours.

The latest report, the 2014 Workforce-Resident Survey, was released in March 2015, showing significant, positive changes in the perception and trends of Downtown Tampa residents and workers.

Thank you to all who have participated in these surveys!
