|Seacrest/Del Ida Neighborhood Improvement Plan|
This Neighborhood Plan was adopted by the City Commission in May of 1998 and most of the projects in the plan have since been implemented. Traffic calming, installation of parking lots, and removal of back-out parking has been completed, as well as the reconstruction of NE 3rd Avenue. These projects were paid for with a combination of City and CRA funding, as well as property owner contributions through the creation of a special assessment district.
As of 2004, ten duplex conversions had been completed with grant assistance from the CRA. The remaining elements of the plan that will involve CRA participation include beautification of retention areas along NE 3rd Avenue; provision of landscape grants to beautify multi-family properties along NE 3rd Avenue; provision of grants to convert duplexes to single family homes throughout the neighborhood; assistance with street lighting; and beautification of areas adjacent to Plumosa Elementary School. Most of these improvements were completed in 2005--2006.Click here for further information about the Seacrest Del Ida Plan.
