President's Message
We greatly appreciate your continued support of our local BOMA Association as we navigate through this unprecedented time. Our local leadership are on calls at least 2-3 times a week with BOMA International, monitoring the situation and the changing climate throughout the United States. 

I’m sure you all know that the BOMA office is and has been open, so if you need anything please do not hesitate to call or email.

One of the best resources has been BOMA International’s Coronavirus Resource Center.  Click here for all the latest information.

We are looking forward to seeing you all again, as soon as possible and in the meantime we are putting together some virtual meetings.

Be Well, Denise

BOMA IS HERE FOR YOU!
Over the past few months, the BOMA community has come together to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you are essential personnel, showing up for work under exceptional circumstances, keeping our infrastructure safe and community operational, and many more of you are working from home to help prevent the spread of this virus. By working together, we help keep each other safe.

As a property professional in these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to be a member of BOMA Greater Tampa Bay. No other organization can provide you the guidance and expertise you need exactly when you need it to help navigate these uncharted waters.

·          The BOMA network connects you with industry colleagues who can help you navigate our new normal way of doing business. The power of the BOMA network provides you with the connections you need with local peers who are developing best practices, local service providers who can answer the urgent questions you have and industry leaders who can share their knowledge.

·          BOMA International’s Coronavirus Resource Center has help to make your job easier by providing our industry with critical resources and credible information about how to mitigate the health and business impacts of COVID-19 preparing for building re-entry, an expert analysis of the CARES Act and updates on the latest state and local legislation that are COVID-19 related.

·          BOMA is the industry’s voice in Tallahassee, on Capitol Hill and with government agencies , voicing your concerns about the Paycheck Protection Program, liability protection during re-entry and pandemic risk insurance that have been shared directly with congressional leaders. 

·          BOMA leveraged its longstanding relationship with the Department of Homeland Security to define essential personnel, reinforcing the need for commercial building personnel to provide essential services as part of the nation’s critical infrastructure and to keep your buildings operational. 

·          BOMA’s education provides access to timely industry thought leadership through webinars, virtual information exchanges and articles both online and in BOMA Magazine focusing directly on COVID-19 thought leaders to help guide your staff through unprecedented times.

We still have work to do, but we are deeply grateful for our extraordinary members and the commercial real estate industry.  BOMA is here for you now and in the future, and we wish you continued healthy and safety until we see each other in person again.

Envision 2030
During these unique times, getting public input on a project is more difficult than ever. Holding a public meeting is just not an option right now. Which is why we are asking for your help.

Envision 2030  is T ampa Bay's first Regional Transit Development Plan (RTDP), mandated by the Florida Legislature.  It’s both a vision and a strategy to improve the quality of life in Tampa Bay through world-class regional transit service connecting Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco and Pinellas counties.

The proposed plan is now released to the public for review and comment through June 1, 2020.  It provides both a 10-year plan for regional transit service covering fiscal years 2021-2030, as well as a longer-term vision for a world-class regional transit service connecting our five counties. 

Envision 2030 information, including the  Executive Summary Draft  and  Regional Transit Development Plan Draft  can be found on the  Envision 2030 page  at  TBARTA.com , along with a form to submit comments.

Public comments can also be provided to TBARTA’s Envision 2030 Project Manager Chris DeAnnuntis at (813) 282-8200 or  Chris.DeAnnuntis@TBARTA.com.

Public comments will be taken now through June 1, 2020.

Thank you,

Diane Jones
