How Your 2010 Property Taxes Are Divided

This is a representation of how each property tax dollar is divided for property owners in the unincorporated area.

All Alachua County property owners pay only 16.28¢ per property tax dollar for countywide programs provided by the County Commission. Property owners in the unincorporated area pay a Municipal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU) of only 7.14¢ per property tax dollar for municipal services provided by the County Commission. Property owners living within municipalities pay their city’s property tax instead of the MSTU.

Downtown Farmer’s Garden Planting

Alachua County, in partnership with Florida Organic Growers, Abundant Edible Landscapes, UF Young Entrepreneurs in Leadership and Sustainability, Home Depot and the Downtown Rotary Club, will plant an organic demonstration garden Saturday, July 10 at the County Administration Building on the corner of University Ave. and Main St. in Downtown Gainesville. The area will be a living classroom for growing organic fruits and vegetables while providing fresh, healthy and local food to nutritionally disadvantaged communities.
The Downtown Farmer’s Garden’s purpose is to provide food and inspire citizens to substitute purely ornamental plants with an edible landscapes. For the community, growing more fruits and vegetables locally reduces energy consumption and increases the area’s self sufficiency. Growing more of our own food is a critical part of building a resource efficient Alachua County.

“As a pilot project the garden represents a commitment to building a resilient community and will feature educational events on rainwater collection, edible landscaping, composting, and local food year round,” said Randall Reid, County Manager. Harvested fruit and vegetables will be shared with local food banks and charitable organizations.

“Access to good nutritious food is important for communities suffering from hunger and obesity problems,” said Sean McLendon Sustainability Program Manager. Recognized nationally, Alachua County has developed a Hunger Abatement Plan and is sponsoring ongoing Healthy Community Dialogues with its citizenry.

This demonstration garden was made possible by a $4,000 donation from the Downtown Rotary Club and partnerships with Florida Organic Growers and Abundant Edible Landscapes to help plant and harvest. Home Depot also donated garden tools. “These projects can’t succeed without the support of the community and our civic organizations,” said McLendon.

“Florida Organic Growers (FOG) through the GIFT Gardens program has installed raised-bed gardens at more than 200 sites in Alachua County since 2008 through generous funding from Alachua County’s Community Agency Partnership Program and the City of Gainesville’s Community Development Block Grant,” FOG Executive Director Marty Mesh said. “This is FOG’s first GIFT Garden installation at an Alachua County facility, and we look forward to working with the County and others to develop more edible landscaping in years to come to increase our community’s food security.”

“The opportunity to work with the county to establish an edible park for teaching people to grow food is exciting. There is a lot of potential for growing food all over Alachua County and this is just the start of creating a sustainable, local food system,” Ryan Brouillard, co-owner Abundant Edible Landscapes, Inc.

The public is invited to view the planting and attend an address by community leaders with refreshments provided from local business owners at 10 AM.

NW 16th Ave. Ground Tests

On February 23, 2010, Alachua County staff presented to the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) a summary of the public comments received and the action plan proposed for the NW 16th Ave/NW 23rd Ave Project.  During this meeting, the BoCC directed staff to proceed with the implementation of the proposed action plan which includes ground tests and evaluations of the proposed median modifications and closures.  Upon completion of the action plan, which began on March 22, 2010, staff will return and present the findings and recommendations to the BoCC.

The ground tests temporarily closed the existing traffic separator and medians located west of the NW 16th Ave/NW 13th Street and east of the NW 16th Blvd/NW 43rd Street intersections. These initial tests were completed on May 25, 2010.

An additional action item is proposed to those that were approved by the BoCC on February 23, 2010. This additional ground test will temporarily close the existing traffic separator in front of the Kangaroo Station/Millhopper Square and modify the median opening in front of the Fresh Market and Publix Shopping Centers located east of the NW 16th Blvd/NW 43rd Street intersection. This test is scheduled to begin on June 21, 2010 and end on August 4, 2010.

To view the February 23rd BoCC meeting, click here (scroll down to and click item 16 to skip to this part of the meeting).

The NW 16th Ave/NW 23rd Avenue Project (between NW 57th Terrace and NW 13th Street) includes the resurfacing and rehabilitation of the existing pavement, upgrading the existing pedestrian facilities to meet current ADA requirements, addressing safety and operational issues through intersection and median opening modifications, and stabilizing the retaining walls along NW 16th Ave.  The project length is 4.0 miles. 

Upon completion of the preliminary plans, the County identified the need to evaluate the provisions for accommodation of bicycles along the entire corridor. This resulted in the identification of three options to improve bicycle accommodation including narrowing the existing lanes, widening the existing sidewalks, and widening the existing roadway.   This information was presented to the BoCC during their meeting on Oct 27, 2009, at the Public Information Meeting held on November 16, 2009, and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Board meeting on December 1, 2009.

A Public Information Meeting Summary Report has been developed that summarizes written comments received on this project. In addition, an action plan has been developed to identify specific tasks and activities to address issues raised by the BoCC and the general public during the public involvement process in order to finalize the preliminary design concepts for the project. The plan presents research activities to evaluate proposed project improvements, identifies on the ground tests and evaluations for selected proposed project improvements and presents communications and public involvement activities to communicate the findings.
