Response from City re: 902 North C Street - came in at 2:40 p.m. today

Mr. Blackman, 

Thank you for the info on 902 N C Street.   Public Services was notified today to address securing the building and the appearance of the property.  This single-family home was placed on the City’s surplus list earlier this year.  Both the Planning & Zoning Board and City Commission decided not to deem the property “suitable for use as affordable housing”.  At the July 6, 2010 City Commission meeting, the Commission chose to convey the property to the CRA.  The property was one of 4 properties conveyed to the CRA, that night.  Resolution 16-2010 approved the conveyance.  The CRA explained they would use the property for their Cultural Renaissance program.  So far this year, 7 properties have been approved for conveyance from the City to the CRA.

Please let me know if anything else is needed regarding this property.
