Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency Socioeconomic Analysis and Site Suitability Report

As part of DRMP’s continuing services contract to the City of Gainesville, we analyze the annual tax parcel valuation statements provided by the Alachua County Property Appraiser to the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). The parcel valuations are used as a baseline for the CRA’s budgetary process.

DRMP staff closely coordinates with the numerous project stakeholders including the CRA, City, County, and Property Appraiser staff to review the impact of valuations to the TIF revenue transfer. DRMP ensures the inclusion of all relevant parcels and value changes over time by utilizing SQL reports and geospatial analysis of parcel boundaries and attributes. An annual view of CRA district legal descriptions and parcel transactions is also reported to the CRA down to the individual parcel level. DRMP also assists the CRA and independent marketing firms to gather data and create reports detailing suitable development sites in East Gainesville. Standard data sets from the decennial U.S. Census and 5-year American Community Survey formed the basis of the demographic data to illustrate block-group level data for:

  • Number of families
  • Median income
  • Employment
  • Age ranges

Specific data for building permits, certificates of occupancy, business license (by type) and development review petitions were mapped and included in the analysis. In addition, commuter flows, drive-time profiles, traffic counts and existing infrastructure were also determined for each area of interest.

As part of the annual parcel valuations for the CRA, DRMP provides a view of changes in parcel values in project areas and ensures the correct valuations are being included in the annual report. DRMP worked with a marketing firm to produce high-quality graphics and distilled data for the report which will be used for marketing businesses interested in relocating or starting up in Gainesville.
