The CRA works in conjunction with the City’s Planning and Zoning Department and private consultants to create redevelopment plans for areas located within the CRA district. These plans are produced following a comprehensive, collaborative process that involves residents and businesses in the affected area. Generally the planning process includes numerous design workshops and community meetings that afford people the opportunity to identify problems and work together on solutions.
