The Community Redevelopment Agency is responsible for developing and implementing the Community Redevelopment Plan that addresses the unique needs or blighted conditions of the targeted area. The plan includes the overall goals for redevelopment in the area, as well as identifying the types of projects planned for the area utilizing any legal development or redevelopment tool authorized by F.S. Statutes Chapter 163.
Examples of traditional projects include: streetscapes and roadway improvements, building renovations, new building construction, flood control initiatives, water and sewer improvements, parking lots and garages, neighborhood parks, sidewalks and street tree plantings. The plan can also include redevelopment incentives such as grants and loans for such things as façade improvements, sprinkler system upgrades, signs, and structural improvements. The redevelopment plan is a living document that can be updated to meet the changing needs within the Community Redevelopment Area; however, the boundaries of the area cannot be changed without starting the process from the beginning.
