PLAN STATUS/RECOMMENDATIONS AND ANTICIPATED EXIT DATE

South Brambleton presents several unique opportunities for redevelopment. The RISE Center is a projected to take a minimum of 10 years.. Shipyards activities and shipping have recently increased, and the City and NRHA have had inquiries regarding available space for commercial and/or industrial reuse. However the road system needs to be upgraded to provide for improved access. Given the challenges facing the City, NRHA, NSU in terms of identifying the ultimate workable reconfigurations, involvement in the development of South Brambleton is anticipated to extend over the next 15 - 20 years. Currently, state law requires all acquisition be completed through use of condemnation authority by July 1, 2010. Light Rail acquisition and construction are currently underway. Beginning in 2010, a master planning effort for the entire area needs to be undertaken for the community. It is anticipated that the necessary infrastructure improvements and the development of the property will take 20 years.
