Vacant spaces are a problem for a community. It's especially bad if they're right in the main throughway of your city.
Patch wants to know what you think the solution can be.
Today, we’re looking at the Hacienda Hotel, a historic landmark on Main Street. Who owns it? New Port Richey city government and taxpayers do.
In 2003, the city's Community Redevelopment Agency agreed to buy the Hacienda. The Hacienda had opened as a hotel in 1927, but was being used only as an assisted living facility at the time of the city's purchase of the building.
The building has sat vacant since 2006.
Community Development Partners had expressed interest in renovating and expanding the property, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is unclear what's going on with those discussions now.
