CRA SALARY AND STAFFING STATISTICS
The FRA has added a new section to the MyFRA member forum allowing members to research what other CRAs are doing regarding salaries and staffing levels. Fill out the short and secure online form and we will compile the responses into a single report.

The report will be available only through MyFRA, FRA's member-only site. Please note, the information we are collecting is public record however, our members often appreciate these reports as an FRA member service.

AWARD SPOTLIGHT:
GAI CONSULTANTS/ CITY OF CLERMONT
Congratulations to GAI Consultants Community Solutions Group and the City of Clermont for receiving the 2019 Capital Project and Beautification Award for Victory Pointe Park.

Victory Pointe Park was a key catalyst for the downtown CRA providing stormwater management, creating a venue that supports special events and enhancing the economic potential for downtown Clermont. The park accommodates stormwater from a significant portion of downtown, providing quality treatment through a series of cascading marsh basins.

It also re-envisions the conventional stormwater pond approach creating a sustainable, amenity-providing, low-impact design (LID).

WEEKLY MEMBER QUESTION
"Does anyone have an affordable housing program aimed at encouraging a police or deputy officer to live within the CRA? Perhaps using incentives or down payment assistance (besides what’s offered by the feds)?"
