PCHA Dedicates Norton Apartments to the Community and the Citizens of Pinellas County

On Wednesday May 23, 2012 community leaders, residents and Pinellas County Housing Authority’s Commissioners and staff celebrated the dedication of Norton Apartments, now named “Norton Apartments at Lake Bellevue”, to the community and the citizens of Pinellas County.  The property is located at 1450 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Clearwater, FL. 

PCHA acquired Norton Apartments in 2011 at a time when the property was in bankruptcy and in a severe state of disrepair. The property had suffered from years of neglect and deferred maintenance.  “Norton residents were living in very substandard and dangerous conditions” said Debra Johnson, PCHA’s Executive Director.  With the help of many community partners, including residents, PCHA acquired Norton and immediately began improvements and property renovations, tackling the most critical and dangerous living conditions first.  With new on-site property management, maintenance and lease enforcement coupled with a commitment from the Clearwater Police Department, the crime rate dropped substantially.  In addition, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has executed a new 20-year committment for rent subsidy.
