Downtown New Port Richey is Experiencing a Renaissance | Debbie Dawson, REALTOR®

City leaders pledged that the revitalization of downtown is just beginning. Downtown New Port Richey is experiencing a Renaissance and everyone will reap the benefits.

You may have notice a lot of new changes to historic downtown New Port Richey over the past years. The quaint little Main Street with restaurants, businesses and shops have always been a destination for local residents. The beautiful park nestled between Orange Lake and the Cottee River has always lent itself to picnics, play and quiet reflection.

With the rebranding of the community came a lot of new businesses, housing and welcome improvements to the walk ability of the whole downtown area.

“Last year, Tom McGilloway, a consultant with Mahan Rykiel, presented the final report on downtown redevelopment to City Council. He described the public investments New Port Richey can make to bring significant financial dividends down the road, once private investors come aboard.

The city will dip into its own coffers, spending up to $37 million to complete its goals over the next decade, but it could see $235 million in private investment for its efforts, McGilloway said.

Public investments could include adding lanes for bicycles and motorized scooters, improvements to the facades of city-owned buildings, and adding needed shade by planting trees or constructing shade structures in public areas like Railroad Square or along city streets. Signage, more interesting pavement treatments and development of Oak Park on River Road could be other areas slated for improvement.

The hope is that private investors will begin their own redevelopment, purchasing sites and revamping them in ways that fit with the goals outlined by the city’s consultants.”
