Sky Lifts: The Future of Tampa Transportation?

Why could an urban gondola system be the solution to our transportation woes? Well, I’ve said before that transportation isn’t our #1 problem in Tampa; it’s the #1 effect of our #1 problem. Our #1 problem, put quite simply, is that we don’t know what we want to be as a city when we grow up. We don’t have an identity or a sole reputation that is recognized worldwide.

If you try to be all things to all people, you will end up being nothing to anyone. While grammatically questionable, the message is dead on.

In fact, if you look at every city of influence you’ll discover that they are each typically known for one powerful concept.
