With the majority of Hillsborough County voters having given the transport referendum the green light, thereby making the decision to invest in the county's transportation, congested roads and bridges, potholes and lack of funding for transportation projects should now become things of the past.


To help fund the region's transportation projects, Hillsborough County will now have an extra one-penny sales tax.


Jeff Vinik - Tampa Bay Lightning owner and a partner in Water Street developer, Strategic Property Partners - has been heavily invested in the referendum. "This is far more important to Hillsborough County than Water Street. Our citizens decided to sacrifice and tax themselves because they understand the importance of infrastructure. It's incredibly satisfying to know our citizens decided to invest in our county," said Vinik.
