Background Discussion
  • Jim Russo Prison Ministries, Inc., received $406,825.98 of CDBG funding to construct a transitional housing facility for ex-offenders. 
  • On April 20, 2013, a twenty-year Land Use Restriction Agreement was executed and recorded as a condition of accepting the CDBG funding for the transitional housing facility located at 2106 26th Avenue East, Bradenton, FL. 
  • On May 9, 2017, a letter was received from Laura Russo, Chairman of the Board for Jim Russo Prison Ministries, Inc., requesting that the transitional housing facility's ownership/operations be transferred from Jim Russo Prison Ministries, Inc., to Harvest Tabernacle of Sarasota, Inc.
  • The recorded LURA and Deed Restrictions for Jim Russo Prison Ministries, Inc., specifically states under Section 4 that the Property will not be leased, conveyed, or encumbered, without the consent of the County for a period of 20 years. 
  • Staff is recommending the assignment, as the current restrictions and use of the property will not change for the remaining years of the original 20 year term.
