Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)

Introduction

The City of Niceville, Florida, in the Spring of 2012, passed Resolution 12-06-01, that it was in the City’s best interest to create a Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to address deteriorating, blighted, and under-performing areas within the historic settlement of the City. It had become increasingly aware that certain areas within the original city needed public incentives to maximize physical (public infrastructure), economic, and land utilization redevelopment to stimulate private investment in order to enhance its overall contribution to the City of Niceville as a whole.

As above, the original CRA was officially created by the City Council on June 12, 2012, pursuant to the guidelines and delegations provided in Chapter 163, Part III, Florida Statutes. It was the City’s desire to gauge, control, manage, and support its designated Redevelopment Area to be compatible with other City programs and resources, and to implement and support public as well as private redevelopment initiatives. In short it was the City’s intention and mission: TO DEDICATE PUBLIC RESOURCES AND PROGRAMS TO STIMULATE PRIVATE INVESTMENT IN UNDER-PERFORMING AREAS AS OFFICIALLY IDENTIFIED IN THE NICEVILLE CRA PLAN.
