Community Redevelopment Agency

The City of Temple Terrace is a rising star in the nationally recognized Tampa Bay area of Florida. Dubbed the "Amazing City," the municipality is nestled among the grand oaks and towering pines along the banks of the majestic Hillsborough River.

Temple Terrace has a population of approximately 26,000, and its City Center is strategically located near the University of South Florida, Florida College, Telecom Park, Busch Gardens and I-75.

The City provides residents with a high quality of life and easy access to the entire Tampa Bay region and its world-class amenities.

As part of the city’s efforts to improve quality of life and strengthen the economic environment, the City has established a community redevelopment agency that includes 20 acres of City-owned land. The long-term vision is to create a vibrant downtown that will be valued by its citizens for generations to come.
