Title
ACCEPTANCE OF SOLID WASTE AUTHORITY BLIGHTED PROPERTY GRANT

Body
Recommended Action:
Recommendation
Accept the Solid Waste Authority Blighted Property Grant award and authorize the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency Board (CRA) Chair to execute an Interlocal Grant Agreement by and between Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County and the CRA in an amount not to exceed $80,652.

Body
Background:
On September 15, 2021, Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) staff submitted a grant application in response to the Solid Waste Authority (SWA) of Palm Beach County’s Blighted and Distressed Property Clean-up and Beautification Grant Application.

The CRA requested $80,652 to implement the following blight prevention and beautification projects:
A. Demolition of 600 West Atlantic Avenue - Shuler’s Memorial Chapel (commercial structure)
B. Demolition of 34 NW 6th Avenue (residential structure)

At the October 13, 2021 Palm Beach County Board of Commissioners Meeting, the funding request was approved for the full amount ($80,652). The CRA is prepared to accept the grant by signing an Interlocal Grant with the Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority and with the expressed approval of the CRA board.

The SWA grant funds will help the CRA advance its mission of eliminating slum and blight by improving the appearance of neighborhoods within the CRA District, including the West Atlantic Neighborhoods, through ongoing illegal dumping mitigation and blight prevention activities and beautification of and near CRA-owned properties.

Attachments: Exhibit A - Copy of grant application; Exhibit B - FY 2022 Delray Beach CRA Award letter; Exhibit C - FY2022 Blighted Grant Interlocal Agreement with Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority.
