Destin Community Redevelopment Agency

The Destin Community Redevelopment Agency was established by the City of Destin on March 3rd, 1998.  Created by Resolution No. 98-09 of the City of Destin, the Destin Community Redevelopment Agency has delineated two districts in an effort to alleviate conditions of blight and to promote rehabilitation, conservation or redevelopment of those areas, which is considered in the best interest of the public health, safety, or welfare of the residents of the City of Destin. CRA districts are one of the few remaining tools that local governments can use to attract new business, invest in infrastructure improvements and rebuild blighted areas by reinvesting Tax Increment Funds (TIF).

The two Community Redevelopment Areas in Destin include the Harbor CRA and the Town Center CRA. Maps delineating the boundaries of each district can be accessed on the respective districts pages. Both areas have utilized TIF funding to improve infrastructure, including improvement of drainage, undergrounding of utilities and widening, repaving or total reconstruction of streets in an effort to improve the look and quality of life in the respective improvement areas.

The Destin Community Redevelopment Agency was created, and operates under authorization granted in Chapter 163 (Part III), Florida Statutes, and such other statutory regulation which, from time to time, may be applied to Special Districts.  It is subject to all Government in the Sunshine statutes and the provisions of generally applicable ethics provisions as can be found on the Florida Commission on Ethics website.
