Bayboro Harbor Redevelopment Area

Legal Name of District and Date Established

The Tax Increment Financing District and Redevelopment Trust Fund for the “Bayboro Harbor Community Redevelopment Area” (Bayboro Harbor CRA Dependent Special District) was approved by St. Petersburg City Council on December 19, 1985, and the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners on December 3, 1985.

Public Purpose

The Bayboro Harbor CRA Dependent Special District was established to remedy blighting conditions within the Bayboro Harbor Community Redevelopment Area, pursuant to the authority provided by the Florida Community Redevelopment Act of 1969.

Boundaries

The 193-acre Bayboro Harbor CRA Dependent Special District lies south of the Intown Redevelopment Area and sits roughly astride Fourth Street South, bounded by the Port of St. Petersburg and Albert Whitted Airport, the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg, the Old Southeast Neighborhood and the medical center complex.  City Council approved the Bayboro Harbor Redevelopment Area in June 1985, adopted the Redevelopment Plan in December 1985, and established a redevelopment trust fund in March 1988.

Services Provided

The Bayboro Harbor CRA Dependent Special District provides a supporting district for several important assets within or near the community redevelopment area.  First, it abuts the Bayfront Medical Center and All Children’s Hospital/Johns Hopkins Medicine medical complex on its northwest border. In addition, Bayboro Harbor incorporates the northern portions of the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg, and lies just west of Albert Whitted Airport, USF-SP, the United States Coast Guard Station and the Port of St. Petersburg -- important institutional, civic and public uses that diversify and enhance downtown’s employment base.  To better leverage and brand these dynamic assets, the City is collaborating with the anchor institutions to create an “Innovation District”.

Finally, in its southern section particularly along Salt Creek, the CRA contains marine-related industries such as marinas, yacht builders, boat repair facilities and research uses not found elsewhere in the city.

Authorizing Statute
