                                            Introduction

In 1998, Mayor Greco documented his visio n for the future of Tampa in his "Plan for Tampa into
the Next Millennium." That document provided a summary of the achievements of his first term
in office and identified the priorities for the next four years. Those priorities were detailed in the
Mayor’s Strategic Plan – the “Mayor’s Strategic Initiatives” (MSI) published January 1999.

The MSI reflects the Mayor’s awareness of citizen concerns and outlined his strategy for
improving the quality of life for Tampa’s residents. It resulted in a set of actions, projects and
initiatives that have been pursued during the past four years to address specific community
issues. Funding for these activities was provided through the City's Budget and through the City's
Grants and Partnerships Programs. Since 1999, the Planning and Management Department has
completed an annual monitoring and management assessment of the Mayor’s Strategic
Initiatives, documenting the progress that has been made in fulfilling the Mayor’s vision.

This report is entitled the Mayor’s Status Report: A Report of the 1995-2003 Accomplishments
and Achievements. The report is derived from the Mayor’s Strategic Initiatives, Annual Reports
and departmental submissions of their accomplishments. It is the final report of the achievements
of Mayor Greco’s two terms in office. Because of the vast amount of work undertaken during the
past eight years, the achievements are presented in outline form and grouped by the
department(s) involved in their implementation. Footnotes and appendices are provided to
augment the outlines.

Construction Services Center Notes

1
   The reorganization emphasized a "Customer Satisfaction" approach to business operations. Construction Services Center
   houses the Plans Exam and Permitting Division and the Inspectional Services Division. The Construction Services Center
   provides a single location for acquiring residential and commercial, electrical, building, plumbing, mechanical, and zoning
   permits. Personnel from the Parks (7), Public Works (3), Stormwater (8), Sanitary Sewers (3), Water (2) and Solid Waste (1)
   departments are assigned to the Service Center for permit issuance tasks related to requirements of those departments.
2
   The reorganization resulted in an expedited plan review and permit issuance operation.
3
   The fund has paid for new equipment such as computers, cell phones, MapInfo® software, and voice response equipment for
   faster, more convenient service for all customers. Funded by a permit fee increase, that provides a new permit, plan review,
   code enforcement, subdivision review and inspection software system. The enhancement program will also provide a new
   neighborhood center in the New Tampa area to handle permits, plan review and inspections, as well as other neighborhood
   functions.
4
   Allows for both voice and fax permit capabilities that utilize credit card payment capabilities, and created a one-stop center for
   the issuance of all express permits.
5
   This program was designed to fund the following projects: construction of the New Tampa Construction Services Center,
   installation of new Internet-ready permitting and inspection software, and purchase of new laptop computers for the Inspector
   Mobile Office Project. All projects will significantly enhance the level of service provided to customers.
6
   Computers were purchased to provide mobile data services for Inspectors to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the
   inspection process.
7
   Some projects include: Stoval Hi-Rise Condominium, Ybor Apartment Complex, International Plaza Mall, K-Force Office
   building, Shiners Hospital addition, Office Hi-Rise on Boys Scout Boulevard, Raymond James Stadium, Downtown Marriott
   Courtyard, Bayshore Apartment Hi-Rise, St. Joseph Children’s Hospital, Harbour Island Office Hi-Rise, University of Tampa
   Dorms/Parking Garages, Police Precinct and Headquarters Building, Home Depot (2), Busch Garden “Gwazi” Rollercoaster,
   Saks Fifth Avenue, 2-Muvico 20-plex Movie Theatre, 8-story Office Buildings on MLK, 4-story Hilton Hotel in Ybor,
   Lifelink Office building, Crescent Office Hi-rises, Municipal Parking Garages, Centro Ybor, Marriott Waterside Hotel,
   Intermedia Office Complex, Channelside Entertainment Center, Harbour Island Apartments, Westshore Mall Expansion, Super
   Wal-Mart, Lowes, among others.
8
   This program collects surcharges on plumbing and electrical permits for the expressed purpose of buying a total of eighteen
   (18) new trucks for both the plumbing and electrical inspectors. The program, which was fully supported by industry, has
   resulted in staff being able to keep up with the high demand for inspection services.
9
   The procedure and information has resulted in contractors and subcontractors being better informed as to the City’s
   requirements, resulting in a more efficient construction process. The Inspectional Services Division (ISD) has conducted
   literally hundreds of pre-construction and pre-final meetings on large commercial construction projects.
10
   This has resulted in considerable savings for the customer when closing out their projects while at the same time assuring the
   City that the projects fully comply with all regulations.
11
   This has resulted in a significant improvement in the daily operation of the construction process since the inspectors are readily
   available to answer questions, make appointments, etc.
12
   Involved training a specific group of inspectors to work in conjunction with city investigative staff for a more efficient and
   effective complaint processing system. In addition, forms were modified in order to automate the citation and permit
   application process by utilizing combined forms which serve as both a notice of violation and a permit application all in one.
13
    Rating increase from Class 9 Community to Class 7 community whereby Flood Insurance premiums are discounted 15%.
14
   ISD effectively participated in public outreach events i.e. Building Officials Association of Florida Annual Educational
   Conference and Trade Expo, Governor’s Hurricane Conference, Hillsborough County Hurricane Expo, International Building
   Safety Week at West Shore Mall, Institute for Business and Home Safety Annual Conference, SBCCI Annual Conference,
   Florida Home Show, Southeast Builders Conference Trade Show, Good Community Fair and HCPHCC Table Top Exhibit.
   IDS also published an entire series of public service handouts regarding FAQ’s, Common Code Violations, Inspection
   Requirements and more, as well as expanded the Building a Safe House public education program series by developing and
   presenting seminars at Home Depots, Neighborhood Associations, etc. The programs have benefited both the construction
   industry and general public.
15
   System will replace current legacy system with a state-of-the art permitting and land management software system that will
   provide enhanced customer service and greater staff efficiency.

     regulations, new treatment process alternatives, and anticipated treatment capacity requirements (2000) for compliance with
     Federal and State's regulations. Phase II completed in 2002, included expanding the capacity of the Hillsborough River Water
     Treatment Plant (HRWTP) to 100 mgd and the updating the facility's disinfection process.
3
     This was achieved by replacing or adding new equipment and changing the work environment to a team concept, resulting in
     better quality of water provided by the Tampa Water Department.
4

Solid Waste Department Notes:

1
    Additionally provided support for "mini clean-ups" for neighborhoods with special needs to receive an enhanced level of
    service. Mini clean-ups have been held in Port Tampa, Sulphur Springs, and Oak Park neighborhoods.
2
    Began implementation of the federally mandated retrofit of McKay Bay Waste to Energy Facility to include new furnaces,
    boilers and air pollution control equipment. While processing more than 300,000 tons of municipal waste that can not be
    recycled, the facility produces the energy equivalent of 713,000 barrels of oil or 132,000 tons of coal - supplying the energy
    need of 15,000 homes. McKay Bay Waste to Energy will be a source of renewable energy in Tampa well into the next century.
3
    Resulted in the elimination of six (6) positions and 3 rear loader garbage trucks, thereby achieving departmental savings.
4
    The program allowed the department to compete wit h private haulers for new customers and to retain existing large volume
    customers. This service was implemented in September 1997 with the reassignment of existing personnel.
5
    239 (64-gallons each) carts were placed in Ybor City during December 2000. The carrying capacity for each cart represents
    two (2) bags of refuse collected four times a week for a rate of $45.37/month. Aesthetics within Ybor City improved
    significantly with the advent of the cart system. The Solid Waste Department was successful in working with the Ybor City
    Development Corporation (YCDC) to acquire land in the 1700 block of 7th Avenue (even side of street) for the location of
    three compactors that became operational in September 2001.
6
    Established curbside residential recycling to every resident in the city. This program was implemented in three phases starting
    in September (Phase 1) and was fully implemented in December (Phase III).
7
    Additionally, this building houses the recycling administrative staff and the existing administrative staff.
8
    The former Police Station and the 12th Street Yard sites were assessed to promote the redevelopment of these two sites.
9
    During 2001, the City began processing three (3) State of Florida Brownfields designations, which will enable development of
    both properties based on the benefits provided in the state statutes. The City Brownfield’s Pilot Project Grant from the
    Environmental Protection Agency for $200,000 has been extended an additional two years and the area enlarged to include the
    Port of Tampa property south of Route 60 including Hookers Point. The cleanup of these areas will help lift a stigma of
    contamination, provide a strong resurgence to redevelop these areas and provide a substantial opportunity to create jobs in this
    portion of the Enterprise Zone within the City.

Community Affairs Notes:

1
    The Mayor's Youth Advisory Group (MYAG) is a 15-member youth advisory/service board. The main purpose of MYAG is
    to keep Tampa Mayor Dick Greco advised on youth issues and concerns. The motto "Lead by Example: personifies the
    Mayor's motivation behind organizing MYAG. The Mayor saw a need to include youth in important decisions affecting the
    future of Tampa Bay. This program offers the youth the opportunity to become more involved in community outreach and
    planning. MYAG also offers them the chance to gain hands on experience in the everyday operations of City of Tampa
    government.
    MYAG starts in early September and runs until late May. The group meets monthly to attend special City sponsored events,
    conduct tours of City Departments, conduct youth led discussion groups, and participate in community service projects.
    Community service projects include neighborhood clean-ups, youth forums, mentoring programs and community outreach at
    such organizations as Ronald Macdonald House. Additionally, the group meets with the Mayor once every other month.
    Membership requirements for all applicants limit the ages between 15 and 18 years old, minimum GPA of 2.5, and must be a
    Tampa resident. The selection process for MYAG includes submittal of a complete application and mandatory interview by a
    group of their peers. If selected, new members are expected to complete at least one year of service.
    The Mayor regularly meets with the group and provided the members assignments to complete. In the past years, the most
    important assignment the group completed was a survey of Tampa community centers. The MYAG members spent two weeks
    conducting on-site inspections of (10) Tampa community centers. They compiled their findings into a report that went to the
    Mayor and City Council. Their recommendations were considered during the budget and planning process. Consequently,
    substantial amounts were earmarked for the repair and remodeling of the community centers.
    MYAG continues to work towards fulfilling the motto, "Lead By Example". The organizers hope that the youth involved in
    this program will continue to have a high regard for their City and pass what they have learned about civic duty and
    responsibility to future generations.
2
    The Mayor's Advisory Group submitted a comprehensive assessment report of Parks and Recreation in 1999. Through the
    Mayor's bond program, many of the deficiencies identified in the report were rectified.
3
    In FY'01, 28 cases were scheduled for mediation. Of these cases, 17 were successfully mediated, resulting in $25, 649 in
    monetary settlements for the complainants.
4
    Between 1995 - 2001, $68.6 million in contracts was awarded to minority and women owned businesses out of a total of
    $752.8 million. During this period, the percent of dollars awarded to minority and women owned businesses ranged from
    7.4% to 10.2%. The lowest year was 1995 with 7.4%.

     The City provides an average of 32% of the Museum’s total operating budget on an annual basis. The Tampa Museum of Art
     raises the remaining 68% to support the collection, exhibitions and education programs, and includes the related staffing and
     promotion required. Funding sources include: grants (foundations, federal, state, and county sources); corporate support;
     membership and individual support; fundraising events; earned income. Through its operational support funding, the City of

     construction work will take place by the end of Mayor Greco’s term. A capital fundraising campaign to raise construction and

Office of Cable Communications Notes:

1
    For the first two years, the Mayor’s Hour was co-hosted by Jack Harris and Tedd Webb. Due to Monday night scheduling
    conflicts for Tedd Webb, he dropped out, making Jack Harris the sole co-host. The show began as a live, call-in program but
    over the years began to have "themes" as part of the programming. The show also has been shot on location, live from various
    areas of the city. According to the viewership surveys, it is one of the most viewed shows on the CTTV channel. The Mayor
    received a Community Communicators Award on May 13th, 2002 because of his support of PEG access and his use of the
    government access channel to speak to the residents of Tampa via his show.

    The ACM is a national organization that promotes public, educational and government access television. The Mayor's Hour
    has won many awards as have many other CTTV programs.

    Hour and Community Affairs Report. The report also states that viewership base appears to be loyal, stable and growing.

                                      City of Tampa Projects
                                     Public Works Department

The Table beginning on the following page lists City of Tampa projects that were initiated in
October 1996 (FY 97) and managed by the Public Works Department. The completion date
most often corresponds with date when the facility was put into use. For consistency, cost
figures identified in the table reflect construction contract amounts (other project costs are too
diverse and were not readily available for this report). Where contracts have not been awarded
and/or construction is not complete, the item is marked as an estimate (Est). In addition to
maintenance projects, the Public Works Building Maintenance Division has completed several
capital improvements and upgrades. This has increased significantly due to the creation of the
'facilities maintenance improvements crew'.

This report is preliminary and all information should be view in that context. Also, due to
recording procedures, some of the City projects shown on this list may also appear on the Project
list found in Appendix A.
