-- Kick Off of At Home Dania Beach & Neighborhood Beautification --
City of Dania Beach, FL: Dania Beach’s history and unique charm is not lost in the city’s renaissance. The City of Dania Beach is reinventing itself through several quality of life initiatives that are transforming existing neighborhoods, while providing business and home ownership opportunities.
On Saturday, May 25, 2019, the City of Dania Beach and the Dania Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) hosted an event that showcases programs that will revitalize neighborhoods in the community redevelopment area.
The activities include the groundbreaking of empty infill lots for six new affordable homes that will be built in the Sun Garden/NW Byrd Point neighborhood, while close to 100 volunteers paint and landscape existing homes on the street through a grant-funded neighborhood revitalization project in conjunction with Rebuilding Together Broward County and The Home Depot.
“The program gives residents an opportunity to feel at home in their neighborhood and community, while fostering a greater sense of pride,” said Dania Beach City Commissioner Tamara James.
Last year, the Community Redevelopment Agency Board approved the At Home Dania Beach program, which is a comprehensive approach to transforming the residential housing landscape within the CRA district by reducing slum and blight, growing the tax base and improving
neighborhood aesthetics. The At Home Dania Beach program encompasses a simultaneous and multi-dimensional policy to enhance the residential housing environment through five strategies: beautification, acquisition and disposition, development, homeownership and trust fund. These strategies represent sub-programs that together serve to improve the overall residential housing market via simultaneous implementation.
Colynn Mae Jones, Dania Beach resident, said, “Thanks to the Dania Beach CRA for improving our street. I am happy for the work being done, our neighborhood is becoming anew with homes being developed and existing homes in our block being painted.”
As the gateway to air, sea and rail travel, the City of Dania Beach is positioned to be a premiere location for new residents and visitors. In the first quarter of 2019, there was a 46.67% increase in new businesses citywide as compared to the same period last year. Several new hotels, businesses and residential properties have opened in the last year and others are under construction.
“We are very excited about the momentum of the city’s revitalization and want everyone to have an opportunity to explore the renaissance of Dania Beach,” said Mayor Lori Lewellen, City of Dania Beach.
From performances at The Casino Dania Beach and unique art, furnishings and antiques in the Arts District to the renovated marina, beach and pier and its downtown hotels, restaurants and new residential developments, Dania Beach is a premiere location for new residents and visitors.
Dania Beach: Sea it. Live it. Love it.
