The Revitalization Plan for the Ponce De Leon and College Hill Homes neighborhoods in Tampa, Florida transforms existing gated barracks-style public housing into a vibrant new mixed-income residential neighborhood consistent with Florida's best traditional communities. The new master plan, generated through a series of town meetings, knits the new streets and houses into the surrounding traditional neighborhoods. The plan capitalizes on the sites greatest natural amenity, beautiful large Live Oaks and other species, by maintaining the tree canopied streets, when present, and by creating new parks and greens which save large stands of mature trees. These new greens organize, and provide a sense of identity for, the new community.
