TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Greater Bond businesses are getting a facelift this new year. It's thanks to city dollars.
The Community Redevelopment Agency, or CRA, is putting its money where its mouth is, showing they will fix up parts of the city that need the most help.
The first project is an old grocery store in the area. It's called Titi's convenience store.
City commissioner and project leader Curtis Richardson says it attracted a lot of drugs and prostitution to the area.
Now, it can be used for housing, a technology center or whatever the community wants.
Richardson says he hopes for something educational, so that everybody can benefit from it.
"It's been a nuisance for the neighborhood all these years so what we to assure them is that we can turn it into an amenity. Something they can be proud of and utilize in a positive way," said Richardson.
The second project is another building on South Adams Street.
It was a restaurant, then a nightclub, but now it's not used for anything. The hope is to make it a restaurant or meeting place.
As for the future of Titi's, the CRA will meet with the neighborhood association before making a decision on what to do with the building.
