The Collier County Community Redevelopment Agency was created by the Collier County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) on March 14, 2000 by Resolution 2000-82. The Agency has two redevelopment areas: The Bayshore/Gateway Triangle Community Redevelopment Area (BGTCRA) and Immokalee Community Redevelopment Area. The BGTCRA is comprised of approximately 1,800 acres with a wide range of residential and commercial properties. To improve the coordination and efficiency of project management, the BGTCRA took over the management of the Bayshore Beautification MSTU in 2009 and the Haldeman Creek Dredging MSTU in 2010.

Redevelopment Plan Update:
In 2000, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the Collier County Community Redevelopment Plan and after 18 years of steady improvements in the area, the CRA approved updating the plan to review the current conditions and establish a vision for the next 20 years. In January 2018, Board approved a contract with TOA Design Group to update the plan. In April 2018, a series of meetings were held to gather public input. On September 19, 2018 a Community Forum was held to review and comment on preliminary recommendations developed from the first phase of the public outreach held in April. To review the September 19 presentation please click here.
