An Industrial Land Strategy for Pasco County

Working with Pasco County staff, the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council (TBRPC) focused on the leading edge of job creation, the availability of land for target industries in the Future Land Use designations of Employment Center (EC) and Industrial-Light (IL). With multiplier effects creating indirect jobs, increasing the share of target industry jobs in the Pasco economy will help the County provide enough jobs to County residents over the long term. TBRPC conducted an analysis of both the job creating capacity of the County’s industrial land and of projects within Planned Developments to scope the need for additional EC and IL designated land. Additional EC and IL provides more ground to reach a related goal, to raise the percentage of all target industry jobs from one in ten jobs to one in four jobs, which is the same level of those target jobs in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
