Green, director of Community Engagement for USF Health, will represent the East Tampa Community Redevelopment Area (CRA), which includes a residential and business district within Tampa city limits that has a population of about 16,000.

The Community Advisory Committee includes representatives of areas and neighborhoods throughout Tampa, which ensures that interests of residents, property owners, businesses and other stakeholders are represented in key decisions relating to the City’s Community Redevelopment Plan and budget for their area. Representatives provide input and make recommendations to the City of Tampa City Council and the Community Redevelopment Agency Board concerning their respective Community Redevelopment Area.

Committee members tend to live or work in the redevelopment area and/or have significant interests within the area. Some members of each Committee have a background or expertise in the redevelopment process, such as neighborhood planning, real estate development, and/or real estate finance. Membership reflects the diversity of stakeholders in each area.

Green’s position as the East Tampa representative is for a two-year term.
