Community Redevelopment Agency
The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is a seven member board, charged with management
and implementation of the City's adopted community redevelopment area plans. Five of the seven
members are City of Leesburg Commissioners. The remaining two members are citizens appointed
by the City Commission to four year terms. Members must reside within the municipal limits of
the City. The City currently has two CRA's, the Greater Leesburg CRA and the Carver
Heights/Montclair CRA. Florida Statute, city ordinances and resolutions have provided the
basis for establishment and future update of the plans.
In 1994, the Downtown Business Association, City of Leesburg and the Chamber of Commerce came
together to form the Leesburg Partnership. This was a united effort to preserve the town's heritage.
Since that time, the Partnership has encouraged and assisted in the City's revitalization projects
by hosting numerous public events and festivals which include Mardi Gras, the Main Street Christmas
Stroll, the Fourth of July Events, the Leesburg Art Festival and the
Bikefest, to name a few.
