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. The draft Redevelopment Plan Update was presented on October 11, 2018 at the Bayshore Gateway Triangle CRA Advisory Board Special Meeting. The revised draft was presented at the November 14, 2018 CRA Advisory Board Meeting. After review and discussion the Advisory Board recommended moving the Plan forward with revisions as discussed to the public hearing process for adoption.

17 Acre Cultural Survey
The Bayshore Gateway Triangle CRA is currently in the process of updating its CRA Plan (Plan) to articulate a unified vision while identifying new redevelopment strategies, projects, and programs. In concert with this plan update, the CRA is evaluating the 17.89 Acre catalyst site known as the Cultural Arts Village at Bayshore. The CRA owned property provides an opportunity to help set the vision for the community. A community survey was taken and over 750 people responded.

Mini Triangle Catalyst Project:
The sale of the 5.27 acre catalyst project continues to move forward. In 2018, the rezoning and comprehensive plan amendment was approved. In addition, the Board approved the Cell Tower Agreement with Crown Castle setting the terms and conditions to decommission, demolish and remove the existing tower on the property and terminate the lease in advance of 2024. Closing on the property was contingent on the removal of the tower. Based on the purchase agreement, the closing is expected in April 2019.
