Community Redevelopment Agency

History of the City of Brooksville's Community Redevelopment Agency

The City Council for the City of Brooksville desires to provide for the removal of blighted areas and redevelop such areas pursuant to the Community Redevelopment Act of 1969 and contained in Florida Statutes, Chapters 163 and 189. On June 7, 1999, the City of Brooksville formally established a Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) in its downtown. The CRA is approximately 104 acres in size and includes properties that are front along Main Street, Liberty Street, Broad Street, Jefferson Street, Fort Dade Avenue, and Saxon Avenue. The Brooksville City Council, sitting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, adopted a Community Redevelopment Plan.

City Council Members sit as the CRA Board Members.

Current Community Redevelopment Plan

FUTURE COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT PLAN UPDATES:


More of the city is going to be revitalized. The Community Redevelopment Area is being expanded to include additional properties in and around the Downtown.  

 

The City’s Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) establishes special districts in the city with the goal of increasing property values through targeted revitalization efforts. Revenues collected from the increase in property values are used to fund the tools and resources needed for future redevelopment projects within the targeted area. More jobs and area establishments, such as restaurants and retail shops are a result of CRA activity.
