GCRA Seeking Community Participation in Creation of 10-Year Plan


The City of Gainesville is hosting a series of public workshops to help inform the work of the newly created Gainesville Community Reinvestment Area (GCRA) over the course of the next 10 years. The series kick-off meeting is Monday, Oct. 14 at 5:30 p.m. at the Cotton Club Museum & Cultural Center, located at 837 SE Seventh Ave.

The final step in the creation of the new Gainesville Community Reinvestment Area is the consolidation of the four existing redevelopment plans into a single “reinvestment plan.” The public is encouraged to attend and share ideas on how the GCRA can best serve the community. Childcare and refreshments will be provided. More meetings will follow the first week of November. Those dates will be posted on the GCRA website and Facebook pages.
