Creating the CRA
In 2002, the City of Flagler Beach adopted a Community Redevelopment Plan which listed numerous goals and objectives (PDF) for the area designated as the Community Redevelopment Area. Those goals and objectives were updated in 2007 and actions (PDF) to be carried out to implement those goals have been adopted by the Board.
Policy 3.2.1 of that plan establishes the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) which is overseen by the CRA Board. That Board can be comprised of the City Commission or by appointed citizens and business owners within the CRA boundaries. In the case of Flagler Beach, the City Commission sits as the CRA Board. Ultimately, the City Commission makes decisions related to spending of the Tax Increment (TIF) monies in the CRA.
Downtown Redevelopment Committee
A Downtown Redevelopment Committee was established as an advisory body to the CRA Board. This committee worked very hard over the years to recommend strategies and programs to the CRA Board. Their commitment and dedication to the CRA is what has made it a successful initiative for the city.
In 2007, the City Commission sunset the Redeployment Committee after they had completed their charge of helping of helping to establish a Downtown Master Plan and Design Guidelines for the CRA.
