City of Dunedin Community Redevelopment Agency
In May 1988, the City of Dunedin adopted a resolution creating the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and established the District comprised of 217 acres and approximately 550 parcels.
On December 15, 1988, the City Commission made the determination that a blighted area existed in the City, and that there was a need for a redevelopment agency to implement the revitalization of this blighted area. Therefore, Resolution 88-31 created the City of Dunedin Community Redevelopment Agency and Resolution 91-4 ratified and readopted it. Based on this determination, the City Commission declared itself the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 163, Part III, Florida Statutes. This action, adopted by Resolution 88-16 (ratified and readopted by Resolution 91-9), also outlined the rights, powers, duties, privileges and immunities invested in the City Commission acting as the CRA. The CRA as an agency exists until dissolved by action of the City Commission.
The primary goal of the City of Dunedin is to provide a tool through the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) that will guide private and public initiatives for creating economic development, improved physical characteristics, encourage investment in downtown Dunedin, improve the quality of life for residents, and establish a framework for the proper evolution of the CRA District.
The CRA holds periodic meetings to help guide the direction of community redevelopment. Meetings are held at City Hall, 542 Main Street. Updated meeting times for the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and the CRA Advisory Committee can be found by clicking on the City Government Calendar.
