DUNEDIN – Plans call for a nonprofit neighborhood center to be formed to help alleviate hunger in the city through a food pantry.

City commissioners are being asked Thursday night to approve a business plan for Dunedin Cares. The organization expects to receive support from the city, religious, charitable and civic organizations, local restaurants, and businesses, donations from residents, the United States Department of Agriculture and grants.

The objectives of Dunedin Cares include effectively distributing food to needy Dunedin residents, establish a donation network that includes restaurants, businesses, groups and charitable organizations, individual residents and government agencies.

Dunedin Cares estimates that it will provide 18,750 pounds per year, growing by 10 percent in the second year. Its facility will include warehouse storage facility for donated food and a walk-in distribution center for residents.

Dunedin Cares will be staffed by a combination of paid and volunteer personnel. The management team consists of a board of directors and an executive director.

In other matters, city commissioners will consider approval of a proposed development agreement to recreate the Fenway Hotel. The applicants, James W. Bower and Christy A. Bower, plan to build a façade similar to the original structure. Staff recommends approval.

Commissioners meet Thursday, May 1, 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 542 Main St.
