A new taxing district that will impact downtown St Augustine property owners is being proposed to pay for improvements include streetscape and drainage improvements for Spanish Street, Hypolita Street, and Treasury Street.
Under the current proposal, property owners in an area bordered by Cordova Street, Orange Street, Avenida Menendez, and Cathedral Place, would be included in the improvement district and would have to pick up the tab for any improvements made.
The City of St Augustine is seeking public input related to the proposed work and options for funding.
If you plan to attend, the public meeting regarding the proposed improvements will convene Thursday, July 18, 2013, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Alcazar Room of the City Hall Building located at 75 King Street in St Augustine. New safety measures will require attendees to empty the contents of their pockets, subject their bags to search, and submit to an electronic frisk performed by uniformed police using handheld wands upon entry, or re-entry, to the meeting room. Allow sufficient additional time to accomplish this new safety measure.
