POMPANO BEACH (CBS4) – A planned home give away by Pompano Beach’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program has been put on hold.
The city bought a foreclosed home in the Leisureville retirement community off I-95 and Copans Road and fixed it up. The house is a 1,117 square foot 2 bed/1 bath home valued at $83,000. It has a one car garage, a new air conditioner, energy-efficient appliances, new hurricane impact resistant windows with a community golf course and pool. Originally the plan was to give away the home to resident who met certain criteria, but now that’s changed.
“After further evaluation by City Staff, the City of Pompano Beach is reconsidering the award of the
Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) home give-away in the Leisureville Community. The
decision was made in order to further evaluate and receive more input into the house give-away program,” according to a statement by city spokeswoman Sandra King.
King says the give away has been postponed until the commission has more time to look into it and sign off on it.
