Inscription. William F. Poe Plaza is named in honor of William F. Poe, Sr. in recognition of the many significant improvements he initiated in downtown Tampa during his five years of service as Mayor of Tampa from October 1974 to October 1979.
For many years, the Poe family's generosity assisted educational and charitable projects with an emphasis on ethics.
Bill Poe's successes in business positively affected the image and reputation of the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County.
In recognition of these many contributions to our community, William F. Poe Plaza is dedicated to the ideals embodied by Bill Poe and the Poe family.
Bill Poe loved being Mayor of Tampa.
