The CRA's mission is economic development. Improving housing stock and getting generational renters into home ownership is economic development. Helping businesses attract customers is economic development. Developing customer traffic in recovering and developing shopping centers is economic development. Restoring historic properties and making them viable contributing structures is economic development. Creating diverse cultural attractions is economic development.
The West Palm Beach CRA has tools that may be able to help with your economic development project. We call them "incentives," and they may vary from year to year, depending on the policies spelled out in our Five-Year Strategic Plan and on the current availability of funds. Incentives vary from CRA district to district, depending on a variety of factors, including the City’s need for specific uses or a project’s fit within our targeted development goals. Check out our policies and procedures and speak with the project manager for the specific CRA district that you’re interested in.
