The 2019 Legislative Session
Starts Next Week

As we all prepare for the start of the 2019 legislative session, FRA is working around the clock to  ensure Florida's CRAs are left intact

We are looking for representatives from cities across Florida to serve as opinion editorial authors.
FRA will do the leg work by providing the first draft of the op-ed for authors to review. We will then coordinate with each author to finalize the content and submit the op-ed to your local paper. 

To show your support for Florida redevelopment and sign up to become an op-ed author, click here.

FRA Awards Spotlight: City of Live Oak CRA

The City of Live Oak CRA won the coveted  2018 President's Award   for Heritage Square Master Plan!  

The Heritage Square Master Plan was brought about from a vision to create a new downtown entertainment district for the City of Live Oak. This hub would provide a brand new downtown experience for residents and visitors alike, as well as become a focal point in the ongoing connectivity effort with the Live Oak Heritage Trail. The Heritage Square vision is to offer restaurant and entertainment venues, while simultaneously honor the city's heritage with the focal points of the original City Hall, the Dowling House, and the Passenger and Train Depots.

Congratulations, City of Live Oak CRA, and keep up the good work!
