Mayor’s Neighborhood University

Idea Category: Smart Government


City government is on the front line in every neighborhood, but to be effective, it is important to to give a voice to young leaders and help cultivate the next generation of neighborhood leaders who will work to move our city forward.


The City of Tampa recently launched a “Mayor’s Neighborhood University”, a 12-week course modeled after a local Chamber of Commerce program for business professionals. During the program, participants learn about how City Government operates, as well as gain skills to help establish and maintain successful neighborhood organizations.
