Project Background and Description
The Lincolnville Community Redevelopment Area (LCRA) was established in 2013 due to a study finding conditions of economic distress and physical deterioration in the area. A redevelopment plan was subsequently developed that makes recommendations for projects and programs to address those conditions of blight found in Lincolnville. Since that time, the LCRA has implemented a number of redevelopment projects and programs, with perhaps the most utilized being the Fix-it-Up and Emergency Assistance Programs for low-income homeowners to conduct essential repairs. This year, the LCRA’s budget was approved with an amount dedicated to hiring a consultant to amend the Lincolnville Redevelopment Plan. 2018 marks the LCRA’s 5-year anniversary, making this year an appropriate time to reassess and amend the Lincolnville Redevelopment Plan as necessary. The purpose of the plan amendment is to reassess and modify programs and projects currently listed in the Plan, as well as add new projects and programs as identified by the public. The consultant selected to conduct the amendment is Strategic Planning Group, Inc. out of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, who has extensive experience in writing and amending community redevelopment plans.
