Orlando Creative Village Seeks TIGER II Grant Money

Posted: July 26th, 2010 | Filed under: Creative Village | No Comments »

The Orlando Sentinel published an article about the ongoing effort to transform the Amway Arena area into a “Creative Village” in which UCF would have a significant presence. Developers are applying to get a piece of the $600 Million TIGER II discretionary grant funding. According to the Sentinel,

… money would be used to extend the Lynx Central Station’s bus and rail lines to the property; rebuild and realign roads that run through it; and add transportation features such as bus rapid-transit stops and paths for pedestrians and bicycles.

Developers and the City hope to hear by the end of the year if their application is approved. Of course, this grant money would only be a small piece of the total construction cost. But it would be a small victory for the city, and a step in the right direction that would also benefit UCF.
