The Lake Park CRA was adopted in 1996 as a proactive approach to boost economic development in the town. The Lake Park CRA works in collaboration with residents, property owners, businesses, developers and other community organizations to foster redevelopment within the CRA district. A majority of the Lake Park CRA can be characterized as a typical suburban industrial and commercial development with the exception of Park Avenue, which serves as the Town’s “Main Street.” Park Avenue is home to a mix of uses, which includes unique retail and restaurant establishments. There is a small residential component to downtown, which the CRA would like to enhance and increase. Some of the CRA’s priorities include public safety, beautification, streetscape infrastructure improvements, economic development, affordable housing, business attraction and retention initiatives. In 2022, the CRA adopted an update to the CRA Master Plan. This RFQ serves as implementation of that adopted plan to further the CRA’s redevelopment goals.
