Thank You for Attending the  2019 FRA Annual Conference! 

We had an incredible week of networking and learning from some of Florida's top redevelopment professionals and the FRA can't wait to see how you will use these tools and experiences to better your communities in the coming year. 

We would like to extend an enormous thank you to all of our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and staff for making the FRA Annual Conference possible.  This year's conference was the biggest yet and we can't wait to see everyone in 2020.

Congratulations to the City of Fort Walton Beach for receiving the 2019 President's Award for the Gulfview Hotel Relocation and Rehabilitation project!

The Gulfview Hotel Relocation and Rehabilitation project focused on preserving one of the City's most historic buildings while redeveloping the property into a resource that residents and visitors could enjoy.
