Item No:                    3A.

 

Meeting Date:           December 17, 2012

 

From:                          Ken Thomas, Housing and Economic Development Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing  purchase of property at 2142 Woodland Boulevard, Leesburg, Florida for the purpose of providing affordable housing consistent with the Neighborhood Stabilization Program 3 (NSP3)

 

 


Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the contract to purchase a single family home at 2142 Woodland Boulevard for the purpose of providing affordable housing.

 

Analysis:

The City of Leesburg and Lake County Government signed an agreement on 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 identifies no major improvements were warranted. 

 

Options:

1.  Approve the purchase of the single family home; or

2.  Such alternative action as the CRA Board may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact: 

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.
