Under Florida law, local governments are able to designate areas with certain conditions as Community Redevelopment Areas. A CRA is created to provide the tools needed to foster and support positive redevelopment of the targeted area.
In Hollywood, the CRA consists of the Downtown District and the Beach District.
The Downtown District, created in 1979, is approximately 580 acres and extends from 22nd Avenue on the west to generally 17th Avenue on the east, Johnson Street on the north and Washington Street on the south.
The Beach District, created in 1997, consists of 293 acres from Sherman Street south to the south property line of the Diplomat Resort and Spa, and from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Atlantic Ocean.
To learn more about the CRA, please view the Master Plan for both districts.
