Intown West Redevelopment Area

Legal Name of District and Date Established

The Tax Increment Financing District and Redevelopment Trust Fund for the “Intown West Community Redevelopment Area” (Intown West CRA Dependent Special District) was approved by St. Petersburg City Council on November 15, 1990, and the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners on January 29, 1991.

Public Purpose

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

Boundaries

The Intown West CRA Dependent Special District lies north and west of Tropicana Field and is bounded by I-175, I-275, Burlington Avenue North and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Street. City Council approved the Intown West Redevelopment Plan (IWRP) and established the redevelopment trust fund in November 1990.

Services Provided

The Intown West CRA Dependent Special District was created to capitalize on the development of Tropicana Field and the eventual award of a Major League Baseball franchise. The Plan recognized the neighborhood would become in the future a “key gateway area and a high activity node related to stadium activities.” Specific issues the IWRP attempts to address include little or no development focus, physical deterioration of structures and properties, poor visual identity and lack of a unified architectural theme or development pattern.

Authorizing Statute

Florida’s Community Redevelopment Act of 1969 (Chapter 163, Part III), Section 163.330 et seq.
