Is the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Relocating?
August 23, 2017
As the Tampa Bay Rays continue their new search for a baseball stadium relocation in Tampa, new reports say there has been some initial discussion of potential spots in Ybor City — specifically on a site currently inhabited by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and other nearby businesses and buildings.
Per the article, “In his search to find the Rays a new place to play in Tampa’s urban core, Hillsborough County Commissioner Ken Hagan has toyed with the idea of relocating the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office headquarters out of Ybor City to make room for a new stadium.
Multiple sources confirm Hagan approached Sheriff David Gee with the idea, although it is not clear if the conversation was entertained by the soon-to-be-retired sheriff. It is also not clear if Hagan was exploring the possibility of using the HCSO property for a stadium or as part of stadium-related development.”
Certainly, that would put in motion a complex sequence of events as property would change hands, construction would begin in the area and many businesses would be uprooted to new office spaces in and around Ybor and Tampa.
We’ll stay tuned for more updates on the Rays…
