Downtown West Palm Beach, one of the CRA's districts
Welcome to the West Palm Beach CRA
Nationally recognized as some of the most innovative and effective Community Redevelopment Agencies (CRAs) in the country, the West Palm Beach CRAs are setting the standard for redevelopment.
The WPB Downtown CRA
created value with key public/private partnerships like CityPlace. Innovative partnering with the WPB Downtown Development Authority (DDA) led to Clematis Street being named as one of America's top streets. Historic preservation is closely valued in the scope of our redevelopment initiatives, with imaginative planned destinations like the Sunset Lounge and Jazz Park in the historic Northwest neighborhood being one of our most anticipated new projects, currently in development.
In the Northwood/Pleasant City CRA
, our award-winning marketing and branding campaigns, events and incentive programs transformed Northwood Village. The CRA created the infrastructure for what became Merry Place. We're currently developing the framework that will allow significant public sector development in the Currie mixed-use district and get it flowing up Broadway.
Created in 1985 and authorized by Florida's Community Redevelopment Act of 1969 (F.S. 163, Part III), the initial Downtown CRA was joined by the Northwood/Pleasant City CRA in 1993. In 2013, the City took the bold step of outsourcing the administration and operation of its CRAs, with the goal of being more nimbly responsive to current needs.
Welcome to strategic thinking, economic development and effective community partnerships. Welcome to the future of West Palm Beach. Welcome to the CRA.
