The City of Dunedin through the Community Redevelopment Agency developed this undergrounding utilities program for owners of buildings and properties located in the downtown (CRA) district. This program has been designed to work with property owners to bury such overhead utilities as electric, cable, telephone and internet.
Eligible Applicant: A person or corporation having ownership or leasehold rights in an eligible building or site. Leasehold applicants are required to obtain approval from the owner.
- The property must not have any outstanding liens or Code Enforcement violations.
- The Pinellas County Property Appraisers Office must show that property taxes are paid up-to-date.
- All work must meet applicable City of Dunedin Code and be performed by a licensed contractor.
- All applicable permits must be obtained.
Program Funding: Funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to program participants. Eligible applicants may receive a reimbursement grant equivalent to fifty percent (50%) of the cost of undergrounding utilities up to a maximum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) and a minimum of one thousand dollars ($1,000). This work must be contracted for and completed simultaneously with property enhancements.
Payments: The City of Dunedin’s CRA Department will provide funds for this program on a reimbursement basis after receipt of all supporting documentation, including proof of payment (copy of cancelled checks, etc.) for all improvements. Reimbursement is issued after the successful completion of a qualified project.
