Lincolnville Community Redevelopment Area (CRA)

St. Augustine, FL

The Lincolnville redevelopment plan provides a guiding document that recognizes and articulates a clear community vision for the economic development, revitalization, planning and design objectives for the Lincolnville neighborhood. The forty-five-block neighborhood, situated on the southwest peninsula of St. Augustine’s historic downtown, is designated in the National Register of Historic Places as containing St. Augustine’s largest concentration of late Victorian Era buildings.

Lincolnville faces critical challenges as it relates to striking a balance between population growth and economic development with existing deficiencies in infrastructure, environmental quality and neighborhood character.

Prosser | PRIME AE was retained to conduct a finding of necessity analysis documenting the existence of blight conditions in accordance with Florida statutes, which is required to establish a CRA. We then proceeded to create the Lincolnville redevelopment plan.

Our work reflected the community’s priorities and vision, providing a comprehensive resource guide that establishes actions to overcome obstacles that inhibit economic stability and directives promoting smart growth. This included private and public improvements in the form of streetscapes, gateways, parks, trails, utilities and other infrastructure supporting future market-driven redevelopment activity.
