Northwest Gardens Tour Series

The City of Fort Lauderdale Housing Authority is hosting their Miami neighbors, and other interested affordable housing advocates, for a tour of Northwest Gardens on Saturday, April 7. The on-site tour begins at 11:30 am and will run until 2:00 pm, including tour, lunch, discussion and networking. 

There is no charge for this event, and complimentary round-trip bus service is available from Miami, leaving from Greater St. Paul’s AME Church, 3680 Thomas Avenue, at the corner of Douglas Road in the Grove at 10:00 am.

To reserve a spot on the tour, and if needed, as spot on the bus, contact Rebekah Bibee at 816-813-3679 or RSVP through: nwgardensspecialtour.eventbrite.com

Northwest Gardens is a LEED-ND certified neighborhood (second in the US) in Fort Lauderdale's Sistrunk corridor. The address for those not arriving by bus is: 1204 Northwest 8th Street, Fort Lauderdale.

Among the many things you will learn on this tour is how the Fort Lauderdale Housing Authority leveraged a $200,000 HUD grant into a $300 million program that replaced their entire portfolio of public housing with clean, modern, innovative housing along with substantial improvements to the public realm. In this process, the Housing Authority used less than $400,000 in CRA TIF funds. Conversely, the Housing Authority has paid almost $8 million in permit and impact fees to the City and County, and they also give the City an annual payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT Payment). 

If you desire to contact Scott Strawbridge of the Housing Authority in advance of the tour with specific questions, his e-mail address is: SStrawbridge@hacfl.com. He can also be reached the Housing Authority Office at at 954 275 4818, 954 556 4100 ext. 1406.
