The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is the City's economic development arm.
The CRA has been able to spur this development with its own infrastructure and beautification projects, as well as special incentives designed to increase:
- Tax base
- Quality of life
Since the CRA's inception in 1985, it has been involved in the renovation of more than 300 businesses and provided more than $7 million in financial aid for the revitalization of Palmetto.
Approximately 80% of the CRA budget goes into these revitalization efforts.
