What is the purpose of a CRA?

The purpose of the CRA is to revitalize the physical environment and the economy of the Community Redevelopment Area. The CRA's activities are designed to solve the underlying problems of slum and blighted conditions through planning, redevelopment, historic preservation and affordable housing so that the tax base can be protected and enhanced by these mutually supportive activities. The work program for the CRA is defined in the Community Redevelopment Plan for the Community Redevelopment Area. In the redevelopment plans, comprehensive strategies were formulated to promote community development in the Community Redevelopment Areas and the annual budget is adopted to support these activities.
