REDEVELOPMENT AREA

US 17-92 is one of the most significant commercial corridors in Seminole County. It is the County’s “Main Street,” the only at-grade roadway that traverses the entire County on its north-south axis. The physical, economic and functional condition of the US 17-92 corridor has a great effect on the citizens of several communities.


The US 17-92 Community Redevelopment Area extends the length of the US 17-92 corridor and excludes the previously established Casselberry and Sanford Redevelopment Areas. In general, the Redevelopment Area extends approximately 1,500 feet east and west of the US 17-92 centerline. Parcels were evaluated for inclusion in the Redevelopment Area upon consideration of such factors as frontage along the corridor, increased redevelopment potential based on adjacent land uses or land attributes, and irregular, small or surrounded parcels that might be combined with adjacent parcels for a more efficient use of land.

 

 

The Redevelopment Area contains a total land area of approximately 1,889 acres exclusive of public rights of way. It includes 1,253 parcels of land along 12.6 miles of US 17-92. Excluding public uses and rights of way, the Redevelopment Area contains approximately 109,959 linear feet of property fronting US 17-92.


Starting at the southern boundary, the Redevelopment Area runs through the Fern Park community in unincorporated Seminole County, excludes the Casselberry CRA which extends to the intersection at Seminola Blvd./Dog Track Road, continues through the cities of Casselberry, Winter Springs, Lake Mary, Sanford and any unincorporated areas before terminating at SR46/First Street in Sanford.


The US 17-92 Corridor is an important road and an important place in Seminole County. It is one of the three “target areas” for economic development as identified in the Seminole County Economic Development Strategic Plan. It is the main roadway that connects the entire central part of the County, and it is an underutilized community resource that can enhance the visual image, the economic performance and the livability of Seminole County. It is a place where redevelopment can be accomplished and encouraged.
