What is a Community Redevelopment Plan?
The Community Redevelopment Agency is responsible for developing and implementing the Community Redevelopment Plan that addresses the unique needs 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.

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

  • Street tree plantings

The plan can also include redevelopment incentives such as grants and loans for such things as façade improvements, signs, and structural improvements. The redevelopment plan is a living document that can be updated to meet the changing needs within the CRA; however, the boundaries of the CRA cannot be changed without starting the process from the beginning.
