Item No: 4.C.4.
Meeting Date: December 17, 2012
From: Ken Thomas, Director of Housing & Economic Development
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of a contract to purchase property at 2142 Woodland Boulevard, Leesburg, Florida to provide affordable housing consistent with the Neighborhood Stabilization Program 3 (NSP3)
Staff recommends approval of the contract to purchase a single family home at 2142 Woodland Boulevard for the purpose of providing affordable housing.
The City of Leesburg and Lake County Government signed an agreement July 9, 2012 regarding the NSP3 to purchase two single family homes in the designated NSP3 targeted areas which includes Carver Heights. The agreement provides the City with $80,000 to acquire two homes, $20,000 to fund any rehabilitation of the single family units and $5,000 total for any soft costs associated with the acquisition and rehabilitation of each home.
Therefore, acquisition of the subject property is consistent with the NSP 3 and our intent to provide affordable housing in Leesburg. A home inspection has been completed and identified no major improvements were warranted.
1. Approve the purchase of the single family home; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The Carver Heights CRA will pay fifty-percent of the acquisition cost which is twenty-two thousand five hundred dollars ($22,500) and Lake County NSP3 will pay the remaining acquisition cost.
