Preserving our history and creating positive development in the Peacock Arts District.
Earlier this year, the Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency (FPRA) Board authorized staff to issue a request for proposal to obtain a contractor that can improve the outward appearance of the Old St. Anastasia Catholic School Building, which is located on 10th Street and Orange Avenue. Old St. Anastasia was built in 1914 and later sold to the FPRA in the 1980s. For the 2022-2023 Fiscal Year Budget, the FPRA Board approved the allocation of $500,000 towards the exterior restoration of the building as part of a multi-phased approach toward the redevelopment of the site and the adjacent vacant parcels. By restoring the exterior structure, it will aid in the FPRA’s purpose of eliminating slum and blight in the community and creating an inviting environment for all to enjoy. Restoration will consist of repairing and refreshing the current structure so that it resembles its original look. Innovative Masonry Restoration, LLC is the awardee for this project and FPRA Staff will be working with them to accomplish the task.
