Tampa International invites public to help shape 'sustainability' plan

TAMPA — There are two master plans at Tampa International Airport. One master plan will guide the airport's $2.5 billion expansion in the coming decades. The other is a sustainability master plan that will help make the airport more environmentally friendly, cleaner and efficient in the near future.

The public can share its ideas for making Tampa International a more sustainable airport during a "visioning" session from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Dale Mabry campus of Hillsborough Community College, 4001 W Tampa Bay Blvd.

Tampa was one of 25 airports selected by the Federal Aviation Administration to take part in its pilot sustainability program. The FAA is contributing a $608,000 grant to fund sustainability programs, and the airport is putting up $200,000.

Reserving a spot is encouraged but not necessary. RSVP by sending an email with "sustainability" in the subject line to Those who attend should use parking lot 1 in the southeast corner of the campus off Dale Mabry and Tampa Bay Boulevard. The meeting will be held at the Student Services Building in rooms 108, 110 and 112.
