Proposal (PDF)

Having purchased this property 18 years ago, Forest Land Dev., Inc., recently entered into a development partnership with DDA.  DDA committed funds to improve existing slum and blight conditions and offers planning, design, permitting, and financial assistance. The developer committed the property to the partnership, donated right-of-way, and gained a corner development lot.
