Community Redevelopment Agency

The City of Lake City established the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) in 1981 to create an area in which the Central Business District would evolve into a more dynamic office, service, financial, entertainment, residential and governmental area. The authority to establish the CRA is enabled by Sections 163, Part III Florida Statues. The CRA was revised in 1989 and again in 1993.
