Former Redevelopment Areas
The Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency operated in four redevelopment areas until its dissolution at the end of Fiscal Year 2019. At that time, the projects that were underway continued and the projects that were in planning were placed on hold indefinitely. CRA projects previously completed or on the 2018-2019 workplan are memorialized in the list below. Projects that carried over into the newer GCRA 10 Year Reinvestment Plan can be accessed at the GCRA Reinvestment Roadmap page. More on the development of the 10 year plan can be found here.
