SAVE TAMPA HEIGHTS
Thank you for visiting Save Tampa Heights!
As the oldest neighborhood outside of downtown Tampa, it's time to demand developers stop out-of-character projects within our neighborhood. We are also against developers who fail to engage with the neighborhood on projects, fail to build with historic urban design in mind, or accommodate the Tampa Heights Neighborhood Plan.
Save Tampa Heights is not anti-development, anti-townhome, or anti-density. We are pro-historic preservation, pro-New Urbanism, pro-affordability, and pro-community engagement.
