USF consolidation could boost R&D prospects for Trop Field site


    University of South Florida will play a role when St. Petersburg officials talk about the future of the Tropicana Field site.

    “We’ve already talked to the city and said we want to be at the table whenever the discussion gets serious about what the city wants to do with that space. They know that and they want us at the table,” Martin Tadlock, regional chancellor at University of South Florida St. Petersburg, told the St. Pete Catalyst.
