Thank You for Making Redevelopment Work

With the conclusion of the 2019 Legislative Session last week, we want to express our  appreciation  to FRA members for your excellent and diligent advocacy on behalf of Florida CRAs, especially for the last three years through our Redevelopment Works  campaign. 

CS/HB 9, a limited version of previous proposals, passed the Senate and House last week. You can review the bill here.

This bill increases accountability and transparency requirements for all Florida CRAs, without unduly limiting operations or planning. We will be sharing the complete analysis and impacts soon. 

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please reach out to FRA Executive Director Carol Westmoreland at
