CRA Plan

The CRA is guided by the CRA Plan. The purpose of the CRA Plan is to explore the critical factors that have shaped Winter Park and to identify opportunities to create a quality environment for residents and businesses. Some of the critical concerns affecting the CRA include public safety needs, lack of property maintenance, affordable housing, youth recreational programs, employment and minority business development. The physical plan is based on maintaining Park Avenue as the primary retail core. The scale, character and urban fabric of the Westside is to be enhanced through streetscape improvements and the redevelopment of a north/south neighborhood commercial corridor along Pennsylvania Avenue connecting the north and south residential areas. The social plan seeks to address human development issues for Westside residents. The core of the social development plan is the development of a communication network and the creation of jobs through promotion of neighborhood commercial development and attention to minority businesses. It also addresses the critical need for a variety of decent affordable housing along with moderately priced infill housing. The importance of clean and safe living environments and social and recreational programs for residents is central to the redevelopment plan.
