Sarasota, FL – At SURE’s Nehemiah Action in April 2006, commitments were secured to protect and expand downtown and Newtown’s stock of affordable housing through expansion of the Community Redevelopment Area serviced by Tax Increment Financing and the reduction or deferral of impact fees when constructing new affordable housing. On April 10, 2008, SURE held its Nehemiah Action with over 500 people in attendance to press public officials for a renewed commitment to “preserve and expand” the stock of affordable housing. A recent breakthrough saw the earmarking of nearly $14 million for the redevelopment of the county’s largest public housing project to address facilities long neglected by local government and lagging far behind code.
