Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency

top memo
Purpose of the Redevelopment Agency
The Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency (FPRA) was established in 1982 to guide the city in its redevelopment efforts. The purpose of the agency is to revitalize both the physical and economic environment of the redevelopment area. Prior to 1982 the Downtown Redevelopment Corporation was formed to study the issues of the declining downtown and was instrumental in the creation of the agency. In 1995 and 1996 the City Commission expanded the boundaries of the agency and included an area south of Atlantic Avenue to Citrus Avenue and Delaware Avenue.

The Boundaries

 
The redevelopment area encompasses the older central core of the city and extends eastward across Seaway Drive to South Hutchinson Island.

The Fort Pierce Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) was established in 1982 to guide the city in its redevelopment efforts. In 1995 and 1996 the City Commission expanded the boundaries of the CRA and included an area south of Atlantic Avenue to Citrus Avenue and Delaware Avenue. Again in 2000 the City Commission expanded the boundaries of the CRA and included the neighborhoods west of 7th Street, the Port and the Beaches. The City Commission included these areas since they were in a state of economic as well as physical decline to help spur redevelopment. The CRA also established their name as the Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency (FPRA).
