Reinvesting in People and Places

The Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency has transitioned into a City of Gainesville department, called the Community Reinvestment Area. Our name has changed but our mission stays the same: To increase the vibrancy of our city’s urban core.

The final step in this transition is the combination of the four redevelopment plans into a single “Reinvestment Plan”. This will be done through a series of community workshops in October and November. The Kickoff meeting will be held Monday, October 14 at 5:30pm, at the Cotton Club Museum and Cultural Center at 837 SE 7th Ave.

The public is encouraged to attend and share ideas on how the GCRA can best serve the community.
