So if the extra tax revenue goes into the redevelopment area fund, what is the city going to do with it? Belle Haven seems pretty well "redeveloped." Are there other areas of the redevelopment district in need of projects waiting for money?

I think you're (another question) more likely to see a reduction in the assessed value of the property, not an increase. Thus rather than pondering where one might spend some extra tax revenue, the City should be (likely is) developing a contingency plan to trim spending due to a shortfall in earlier revenue projections.
