The City of North Miami is an
entitlement recipient of federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD) under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
Program. For Program Year 2010 the City of North Miami was awarded supplemental
Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP3) funds in the amount of $1,173,374.00
to facilitate the purchase and rehabilitation of foreclosed and abandoned
properties that might otherwise become sources of abandonment and blight within
the community. The City amended the 2010
Action Plan to incorporate this NSP3 funding and eligible strategies. The City is
amending the 2010 Action Plan to add Target Area (4, which also incorporates
previously approved Target Areas (1, 2 & 3).
Summary of Amendment
NSP 3Target Area (1) proved to be
too limited and restricted the City’s ability to spend the NSP3 funds in the
areas of greatest need. Target Area (1) is bordered by the NE 12th Avenue to
the East, NE 6 Avenue to the West, NE 135 Street to
the South and NE 143 Street to the North.
NSP3 Target Area (2) is bordered
by West Dixie Highway to the West, NE 123 St to the North, NE 121
St to the South and 6 Avenue to the East. The City has

NSP3 Target Area (3) is bordered by NE 127 St to the North, NE 13 Ave to the West, NE 125 St to
the South, NE 13 Place and NE 14 Ave to the East. The City has been unsuccessful thus far in
locating any properties in this Target Area.
The proposed Target Area (4) is
bordered by NW 17 Avenue on the west, to NE 16 Avenue on the East, up to
the City’s Northern limits at NE 149 Street on the North, to NW
119 Street on the South. The proposed Target Area 4 includes all previously
approved Target Areas. A map of the proposed Target Area (4) is below.
