Confederacy Unil Meets The General J. K B. Stuart Chapter of the I'nited Daughters of the Confederacy held its November meet- FORT PIERCE - "One of the "best bargains the City of Fort Pierce has ever been able to buy" was outlined for members of the Downtown Ki-wanis Club by Elmer Cox. director of Fort Pierce Improvement Area No. 1. Cox told Kiwanians that through the federally-sponsored concentrated code enforcement program to upgrade the 125-acre improvement area in Lincoln Park, the city is "getting potentially a program worth at least $2 million." And. Cox pointed out. "It will cost the city over a three-year period only about a quarter-million dollars." The first concentrated code enforcement program authorized for Florida, the local program is administered by the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and the city of Fort Pierce. With HUD contributing 75 per cent of the construction and operational costs, Cox said that the city is receiving a three-to-one return on every dollarspent on the project. During its 14 months of operation here, he said. 54 rehabilitation grants, totaling $84,898, had been received by low-income home owners in the Improvement Area, with each grant averaging about $1,572. Although the average amount of the grants only covered the essential items necessary to bring these homes up to "the bare minimum code." Cox said it was "amazing how much was accomplished with just $1,500." And he added that the federal government had recently raised the limit on each grant to $3,000, enabling property owners to accomplish even more. In addition. Cox said that $91,600 in the form of 40 rehabilitation loans, averaging about $2,290 each, had been approved during the same period through October. Local residents will see another "bargain" project get underway, when construction is started by Dickerson Inc., recently awarded a $647,614 contract for street improvements in the 23-block area.
