Kevin voted NOT to sunset the CRA to make way for millions of dollars to come to Hollywood from Broward County for Affordable Housing Programs.

Broward to pay millions to Hollywood for affordable housing (The Florida Redevelopment Association- 2018)

Affordable housing programs are getting a boost in as Broward commissioners have agreed to pour millions of dollars into those programs.

The money is coming from excess county tax payments to the city’s beach redevelopment agency that the agency doesn’t need.

For decades, Hollywood’s beach and downtown areas have been receiving an infusion of city, county and special district tax dollars to remove blight.

“If the county allows the dollars to go into other parts of the city, it’s going to raise property values in other parts of Hollywood,” City Commissioner Kevin Biederman said. “Those dollars are going to help other parts of Hollywood that need a little bit of help. And right now the county is pushing its affordable housing initiative.”

Note: More Households in District 5 have benefitted from these programs than any other district. Kevin is Our voice at city hall.

Kevin has Pushed for Infrastructure Improvements in District 5.

District 5 has received millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements. Millions have been spent on sidewalk repairs, Replacements and expansions have been done to improve pedestrian walkability and connectivity from neighborhoods to schools. additionally, millions of dollars have been spent in district 5 on water main replacements, Storm water drainage and sanitary sewers. There is more work to be done, of course, and we need someone who understands the process, knows the stakeholders and makes sure district 5 sees even more improvements. Kevin is your voice at city hall.

More than 500 households received assistance to pay their rent and mortgage during the pandemic to prevent homelessness. many households in district 5 were able to find relief from these programs and we are glad to still call them our neighbors.

Kevin Supports Initiatives Which Aim to Reduce the Residential Tax Burden.

He also supported programs that incentivize businesses in our commercial corridors to improve their curb appeal. Additionally, he supported the investment of CRA funds to bring enhanced commercial buildings to the city, which yielded long-term non ad valorem revenue to the city and inspired redevelopment and improvements.
