“Cities have the ability to directly impact residential home values by investing in the infrastructure, streetscapes, roadways, sidewalks, and bicycle paths. These capital improvement projects play a critical role in the increase in residential property values. In the City of Fort Pierce, single family home property values within a 3-mile radius of investment projects completed over the past 5 years increased by between 67% and 84% from 2016 to 2020.”
