This WikiProject aims to coordinate improvement efforts on articles related to any city in the Tampa Bay Area, which includes, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Bradenton/Sarasota, Lakeland, the North Suncoast, and many more cities. It is also an aim of this project to bring the Tampa city article up to Featured Article status, in part by bringing it up to the standards defined by WikiProject Cities.
