Redevelopment districts are established by local government agencies in response to conditions that are considered blighted, as defined in Chapter 163, Part III, Florida Statutes. If an agency, such as the City of Ocoee, is located within the jurisdiction of a Home-Rule County, then they must be delegated redevelopment powers by that County. If an area is determined to be blighted, and they receive delegation of powers, then the next step is to establish a community redevelop agency or CRA. Once a CRA is created then they oversee the development and implementation of a redevelopment plan to guide revitalization efforts over a period of years.
Once an agency is established and redevelopment district created, the Agency gains access to a revenue source called Tax Increment Financing (TIF). It is important to note, this is not a taxing authority or a new tax. TIF revenues are generated based on the incremental growth in property values within a district overtime as public infrastructure projects are completed and private reinvestment is realized. These funds are deposited into a Redevelopment Trust Fund and can only be used for programs and projects geared to revitalizing the redevelopment district.
The Ocoee CRA is comprised of seven (7) members. These members include the five (5) member City Commission plus two additional at-large members. One of the at-large members are nominated by Orange County.
