Community Redevelopment Area (C.R.A.)

About the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA)

What is a Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) or District?
Under Florida law (F.S. Chapter 163, Part III) local governments are able to designate Community Redevelopment Areas when certain negative economic conditions exist. Examples of negative conditions include but are not limited to: substandard or inadequate structures, insufficient roadways and inadequate parking. The purpose of the CRA is to improve the tax base and encourage public and private investments in the CRA. CRA dollars can be used to fund projects within the redevelopment district. Projects such as the US1 Streetscape have been partially funded with CRA dollars. CRA funds may also be used for improvements to businesses located within the district, community policing and other economic incentive tools.

The activities and programs offered within a Community Redevelopment Area are administered by the Community Redevelopment Agency. The CRAG board is made up of 5 representatives that consist of the City Council board.

CRA Boundaries: The Community Redevelopment District encompasses approximately one-third of the City’s land area and runs the entire length of the City, along U.S.1/South Ridgewood Avenue, from Beville Road to the South City limits and from the railroad tracks to the Halifax River.
