Three meetings have been scheduled to provide information and receive input from the public regarding the Lincolnville Community Redevelopment. The meetings are scheduled for 2:00pm on Tuesday, January 22, and at 6:00pm on Wednesday and Thursday, January 23 and 24. All meetings will be held at the Willie Gilmore Center, 399 Ribera Street.
The City of St. Augustine contracted with Prosser Hallock, Inc. to conduct a Finding of Necessity analysis, often referred to as a “blight study,” for the Lincolnville neighborhood. The purpose of the analysis is to determine if the criteria that define “blight” are present in sufficient amount to provide a basis for City Commission adoption of a Resolution for Finding of Necessity. If the study area meets the criteria and the Commission decides to proceed, then a Redevelopment Plan will be structured to address the area’s inadequacies and provide strategies and mechanisms on which to build positive improvements in Lincolnville.
New financial resources derived from new community redevelopment are a result of the creation of an increment financing district and its increasing property value following a base year. For instance, if a property generates a property taxes of $100 at the base year, but a year later real estate values increased the property taxes to $101, the additional income of $1 will be dedicated to improvements within the boundaries of the redevelopment area. If created, this will be the city’s second community redevelopment area after the Historic Area Transportation and Parking Community Redevelopment Area created to support the parking facility at the Visitors Information Center.
