About Us

The Collier County Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) was established in March 2000 to alleviate slum and blight in two separate Redevelopment Areas within Collier County: The Bayshore Gateway Triangle Redevelopment area and the Immokalee Redevelopment Area.

The Bayshore Gateway Triangle Redevelopment Area

The Bayshore Gateway Triangle Redevelopment Plan includes a study of the area completed in 1999 which identified four distinct manifestations of slum and blight within the Redevelopment Area:

1. Faulty on street & lot layout in relation to size, adequacy, accessibility, or usefulness;

2. Unsanitary or unsafe conditions including deterioration of site.
