Future of the Region Awards Honors Pasco County with the One Bay Award for 3rd Time

Where is the future of Tampa Bay? According to the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, it is Pasco County. Pasco swept the Future of the Region Awards winning the One Bay award for the third time.

The One Bay Regional Vision Award is the top award and effectively elevates the County to an elite status among Tampa Bay communities. The One Bay award has drawn upon thousands of citizens to create a shared regional vision to plan where future population and employment growth should occur based upon responsible land use, mobility, economic and environmental sustainability.

Also, for the first time in the history of the 22-year awards program, Pasco County was honored with winning both The One Bay Award and The Charles A. McIntosh, Jr. Award of Distinction, for The Harbors, West Market Redevelopment/Infill Plan. These are the two highest awards handed out each year.
