Explanation
The City of Gainesville acquired the Hogtown Creek Headwaters property in 2007 with grant funding assistance from Florida Communities Trust (FCT). The FCT grant agreement mandated several park features including a staffed nature center for environmental education purposes. An existing structure, a farm house previously belonging to the Hartman family (now believed to have been constructed in the 1890s), is undergoing renovations for this purpose.

The project is, however, one of three projects that will receive funding through a Wild Spaces & Public Places (WSPP) interlocal agreement with Alachua County, reimbursing up to $125,000 of the project costs.
The City entered into a contract with J.E. Decker Construction Group, LLC in the amount of $399,869 in 2019 to facilitate the adaptive reuse of the building into a nature center. Through a series of change orders, 1-3, the contract value was increased to $435,214.58.
