COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

The goal of the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) of Pensacola, Florida is to eliminate slum and blight using strategies that promote reinvestment and revitalization in the community. On September 25, 1980, the Pensacola City Council made the determination that a blighted area existed in the city, and that there was a need for a redevelopment agency to rehabilitate, conserve and implement the redevelopment and revitalization of this blighted area. Therefore, Resolution 54-80 (PDF) created the Pensacola Inner City Community Redevelopment Area and Resolution 65-81 (PDF) reaffirmed it. Based on this determination, the City Council declared itself the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 163, Part III, Florida Statutes. This action, adopted by Resolution No. 55-80 (PDF) and amended by Resolution 22-10 (PDF), also outlined the rights, powers, duties, privileges and immunities invested in the City Council acting as the Agency. On August 13, 2020, the City Council voted to extend the life of the agency until 2046. Downtown Pensacola's redevelopment efforts are guided by the CRA, which is comprised of the seven City Council members, and a citizenry determined to revitalize the historic waterfront and inner-city neighborhoods.
