I am asking because I recently went to that Bed, Bath & Beyond and there is so much overgrown vegetation is makes it very hard to see who is coming without pulling my car half way in the road! VERY dangerous. I don't know who was the genius landscaper there, but something has to be done about it because while it looks nice and flowery, it is very dangerous for both pedestrians and cars.

Is the city of Tampa? who is maintaining it because I know "Citrus Park" is not a city.

Thanks.

The borderline of the city/county boundaries is at Waters Ave. This would be unincorporated Hillsborough. You can call Code Enforcement but you will need to be more specific. I'd think the tenants of that strip all pay a landscaper but I have no clue who. Are you talking about near Smokey Bones, Olive Garden, or Dairy Queen?

It's hard to answer without additional info.
If we are talking about access connections (driveways) from shopping plaza where Ross and Bed, Bath ad Beyond to Citrus Park Drive, it's not city or county property, but private property and the owner is KIR Tampa 003 LLC (Mailing address is C/O KIMCO REALTY CORPORATION, 3333 NEW HYDE PARK RD STE 100 NEW HYDE PARK, NY 11042-1205), so it's their responsibilities to maintain landscape. If you will get into car accident due to above mentioned issue you will be able to sue them.

Thanks for that! That is the plaza in question!
I am going to give them a buzz!

I like nicely landscaped areas, but not where the visibility is obstructed in such major way!

No Problem!
I would suggest to contact Hillsborough County (public relation depart or code inforcement) and check regarding this issue first. With the number of related with this issue accidents and/or complains they might step in to resolve this issue.
From my personal experience, bushes and trees are blocking the view all over the place and I cannot stand it.

We really do. Hopefully the county stumbles upon a pot o' gold (or just decided to re-appropriate some fundage) and allocates it toward some public maintenance/beautification projects, now that the housing market has picked back up, err, I mean is experiencing an artificial buying frenzy thanks to cash-in-hand investors sucking up all the property.

We say the same thing every time we are in that plaza. Beautiful and lush but very difficult to see around.
