Collaboration

The FDOT District Seven Tampa Bay Regional Goods Movement Study was developed in partnership and collaboration with various stakeholders, as well as guidance from the Goods Movement Advisory Committee (GMAC). The GMAC represents various transportation and land use planning agencies, intermodal entities, economic development groups, and freight distribution groups within the Tampa Bay region. Private sector entities that rely on freight travel for their business are also invited to these meetings to discuss issues and concerns they may have regarding freight transportation networks and goods movement.

The GMAC has the following key roles and responsibilities:

  • Provide a framework to address freight mobility issues in the transportation planning process;
  • Ensure meaningful participation of the freight industry and economic development interests in the planning process;
  • Identify improvements and strategies to facilitate the safe and efficient movement of goods while minimizing impacts to community and environmental assets; and 
  • Recognize and develop transportation and land use policies that support freight mobility and economic development.

Meeting dates, times and locations will be posted as they become available, as will summaries of past meetings.
