HIGH SPRINGS ‒ The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Board met on Feb. 9 to consider one item, a Commercial Façade Improvement Grant application for Prohibition Pizza. The grant request was initially submitted on Oct. 20, 2022 by the owners, David and Kelly Potter.

The grant amount was for $5,000 to help pay a portion of a new roof on a building located next door to the Priest Theater at 18559 N.W. 237th Street.

The roof was estimated to cost $15,500 and had already been installed. During the meeting it was pointed out that normally CRA grants are not approved after the work has been completed. High Springs City Manager Ashley Stathatos said that the application was submitted prior to the work being done, and through no fault of the property owners, the request could not be heard until this meeting. Staff recommended approval of the grant.

Board members agreed as they unanimously approved the grant application request and wished the owners well in their endeavors to get the business open.
