Greetings Conference Attendees:
Welcome to Tampa and the 2019 Florida Redevelopment Association Annual Conference! On behalf of the Florida Redevelopment Association Board of Directors, I am honored and delighted to welcome you to our 36th annual conference. The Florida Redevelopment Association has always been the premier organization for redevelopment specialists in Florida, and the 2019 Conference continues that tradition.
To all our sponsors and exhibitors, for your involvement and support – our sincere thanks! Whether you come from a large or small district, there is something for everyone. Also sincere thanks to our own Carol Westmoreland and Jan Piland, who have worked tirelessly to make the conference a success.
I know you will enjoy this year’s program filled with informative sessions, networking, professional development opportunities and illuminating tours of redevelopment projects. Tampa’s redevelopment offers transferrable aspects for a program of any size. We encourage you to learn about the area as much as you can.
These year’s award entries show that significant private and public investments continue tobe made every day in Florida’s big and small communities. Specifically, these investments are focused within CRAs, where job creation is occurring, quality of place is defined, and civic and cultural activity is celebrated.
Congratulations to all who submitted projects. May we all learn from their experience to transform our communities.
2018-19 FRA President
