AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 13, 2010

 

From:                          Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution of the Community Redevelopment Agency recommending to the City Commission an amendment to a Matching Sign Grant Program to add the Greater Leesburg Community Redevelopment Agency

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends supporting the amendment to the Matching Sign Grant Program to add the Greater Leesburg Community Redevelopment Agency.

 

Analysis:

The Greater Leesburg Community Redevelopment Agency believes that the Matching Sign Grant Program by providing public CRA matching funds on a percentage basis for replacement of ground/freestanding signs to match property owners funds to pay for sign improvements/replacement will enhance and promote the goals of the CRA.  Inadvertently, the Greater Leesburg CRA which has a boundary along the US Hwy 441/27 corridor was not included in the program (See map attachment). The program will be subject to the availability of CRA funds annually.

 

 

Options:

1.   Adopt the resolution recommending to the City Commission adoption of the amendment to the  Matching Sign Grant Program to include the Greater Leesburg Community Redevelopment Agency district.; or

2.   Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The CRA district will have a negative impact on their annual budget do to the cost of the program.
