Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
A CRA is a special district in which any future increases in property values are set aside to support economic development projects within that district. Authorized by the Community Reinvestment Act, CRAs assist local governments in eliminating and/or preventing blighted conditions that are detrimental to the sustainability of economically and socially vibrant communities.
Apalachicola Community Redevelopment Agency Board Members include Jim Bachrach (Board Chair), Tom Morgan (Vice Chair), Mayor Van Johnson, Sr., Commissioner Brenda Ash, Commissioner Mitchell Bartley, Commissioner Jimmy Elliott, and Commissioner Anita Grove. The Executive Director is Augusta West.

The Community Redevelopment Agency is responsible for developing and implementing the Community Redevelopment Plan that addresses the unique needs of the targeted area. The plan includes the overall goals for redevelopment in the area, as well as identifying the types of projects planned for the area. The redevelopment plan is a living document that can be updated to meet the changing needs within the Community Redevelopment Area. Click the link to review the current plan.
