2019 Award Entry Spotlight:
City of Rockledge 

The Rockledge CRA is dedicated to revitalizing and preserving the Rockledge community and entered their project, Space Coast Health Foundation Center for Collaboration, in the Outstanding Rehabilitation or Reuse category. 

The 30,000 square-foot structure was originally home to SupeRx Food and Drug and later a large bowling alley and storage facility. It had long been viewed as a blighted property. Space Coast Health Foundation purchased this property and launched an exhaustive undertaking in transforming this structure to house SCHF offices, including the Children's Advocacy Center of Brevard. 

The Rockledge CRA provided $10,000 in fa├žade grant funding which helped to complete the outdoor seating/garden area. This LEED focused project is an extraordinary presence on what is a major gateway into the City of Rockledge.  

As a part of our appreciation for this year's outstanding award entries, we are highlighting various projects until the official winners are announced on October 17.

She served the Tampa Police Department for over 30 years where she worked her way up to become the first female Chief of Police. Her dedication to public safety contributed to the overall major crime rate decrease by 70 percent citywide.
