City OKs brownfield status for Ponce site|
KATI BEXLEY St. Augustine Record (FL) November 14, 2006
The St. Augustine City Commission made a controversial decision Monday to allow a developer to receive a tax break through a state program for cleaning the contaminated former Ponce de Leon Resort and golf course.
The commission's vote of 3-2 came after nearly two hours of discussion and public comment. Commissioners Errol Jones, Don Crichlow and Joe Boles voted for the site to be part of the state program. Commissioner Susan Burk and Mayor George Gardner dissented.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection offers the brownfield program as an incentive to redevelop contaminated sites. The program includes tax benefits for the property owner.
