Recommended Action

Adoption of a resolution to declare a County owned parcel (Property) as surplus, grant authorization to donate the Property to the Pinellas County Housing Authority (PCHA), and grant authorization for the Chairman to execute the Quit Claim Deed in accordance with Section §125.38, Florida Statutes.


                     The Property consists of a network of roadways contained within the boundaries of Rainbow Village. 

                     Conveyance of the Property enables PCHA to construct the entire development without constraints of the current roadway network. 

                     Pinellas County Property Appraiser’s Just Market Value for the Property is $6.50 per square foot, or $983,911.50.


Authorize the Chairman to sign and the Clerk of the Circuit Court to attest and record the Quit Claim Deed and resolution in the public records of Pinellas County.

Background Information:

PCHA is re-developing Rainbow Village into Heritage Oaks, an Affordable Housing project for seniors. As a prerequisite to site re-development, PCHA was granted a petition to vacate right-of-way interest associated with the roadway network within the boundaries of the Property. This conveyance will unify ownership with the contiguous parcel to PCHA. 

Florida Statutes, §125.38 grants the Board authority to convey property that is not needed for County purpose to a not-for-profit organization for the purposes of promoting community interest and welfare if the Board determines it is in the best interest of the County.
