SUMMARY:

                                          

In September 2011, City Council approved the purchase of the former Blount School property located at 113 North “C” Street using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds with the intention of removing dilapidated structures from the property to provide for future development opportunities in the Westside Community Redevelopment Area.  In Fiscal Year 2012, with the assistance of CDBG funds from Escambia County, the two dilapidated buildings were demolished removing slum and blight on the property.   

 

Since CDBG funds were used to purchase and improve the former Blount School property, the use of the property is dictated by CDBG program requirements as outlined in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations Title 24, Housing and Urban Development. In order to remove the CDBG program requirements from any proposed future use of the former Blount School property, the CDBG Fund must be reimbursed in the amount of the current fair market value of the property, less any portion of the value attributable to expenditures of non-CDBG funds used for the acquisition of and improvements to the property. This CDBG program requirement applies to any expenditure of CDBG funds in excess of $25,000 used to acquire or improve property.

 

In January 2017, City Council declared as surplus the former Blount School property located at 113 North “C” Street and authorized the Mayor to dispose of the property through a request for proposals.  The City recently received an appraisal report valuing the property at $305,000. During acquisition and improvement of the property, the City expended $9,063 of non-CDBG funds on the property. Therefore, in accordance with CDBG program requirements, the CDBG Fund must be reimbursed in the amount of the current fair market value of the property ($305,000), less any portion of the value attributable to expenditures of non-CDBG funds used or the acquisition of and improvements to the property ($9,063) for a total amount of $295,937 to be remitted to the CDBG program for use on other eligible projects.
