Our goal is to build awesome things that make a difference in Gainesville, FL. Bridging the gap between public and private investments, the CRA revitalizes blighted areas with the purpose of transforming Gainesville's urban core physically and economically. Projects have ranged from building the signature 13th Street DNA-helyx bridge to spurring high tech job creation. Check out our Annual Report and project results at www.gainesvillecra.com Our work takes a mixture of creativity, vision & hard work. The CRA operates in four community redevelopment areas: Eastside, Fifth Avenue/Pleasant Street, Downtown and College Park/University Heights. Governed by the Gainesville City Commission seated as the CRA Board, the agency reinvests tax increment dollars into target redevelopment areas.
