Davis Islands home owners are pushing for the city of Tampa to allow golf carts as a form of transportation, citing it’s cleaner for the environment, saves energy, reduces fossil fuel consumption, and because it’s also a pretty dang cheap way to get around too. Despite a new petition being active on change.org, this isn’t the first time such a proposal has been discussed, however.
But with residents and Davis Islands neighbors once again making a case for allowing this part of the city to be golf cart friendly, it’s certainly possible that street legal golf carts could finally become a reality after several failed attempts. Aside from the environmental and affordability aspects, residents also feel golf carts will keep speeding throughout the neighborhood to a minimum, and also add to the overall ambiance of the Davis Islands community, which remains one of the most sought-after locations in town for active home buyers browsing the Tampa real estate market.
