SUMMARY:

                                          

The unimproved property located at 2420 North 7TH Avenue was identified by City Staff and declared as surplus by City Council action on July 25, 2002. City Council declared the property as surplus, identified it for urban infill housing and recommended disposal through a Request for Proposal. The property was never sold or redeveloped and remains in City ownership. The property is approximately .0643 acres and zoned R-1A. R-1A zoning allows for single family residential development. The parcel is located on the corner of East Scott and North 7TH.

 

Escambia County Housing Finance Authority, a not for profit area affordable housing provider, has expressed an interest in acquiring this parcel in support of their Urban Infill Program for development of affordable housing. The City of Pensacola and Escambia County Housing Finance Authority have determined that participation in this program will allow both parties to develop workforce housing which will support redevelopment initiatives within the City. Additionally, the City will benefit from ad valorem tax revenue generated as a result of returning the parcel to the tax roll.

 

In accordance with Section 166.0451 Florida Statutes, in 2008 City Council established by resolution a list of City owned real property that was appropriate for use as affordable housing. This parcel is one of those identified on the approved list.
