We Want to Hear from You!

Hillsborough County residents asked to weigh in on equity

Hillsborough County wants your thoughts as it develops an action plan to guide the establishment of policies and procedures through an "equity lens."

The goal is to make a plan that reflects the voices of as many residents as possible, capturing their priorities, interests, and lifestyles. This all-in approach aims to provide a mutual sense of belonging and shared values.

How can the County make quality of life improvements in the areas that impact your daily life including healthcare, housing, food security, economic opportunity, transportation, criminal justice, land use/zoning, and improved access to the internet? We want your thoughts.
