Did you receive a stormwater assessment letter from the City that was hard to read? We are aware of the issue and sincerely apologize. Our printing vendor’s software experienced a glitch and the wrong font was used. The printing vendor is currently in the process of reprinting and remailing the correct letter at no extra cost to the City. You should be receiving a second, easier to read letter, within the coming days. Thank you for you patience and understanding. In the meantime you can visit http://www.titusville.com/Page.asp?NavID=1725 for more information.

Community Redevelopment Agency

The Titusville Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) was established on October 12, 1982 by ordinance 66-1982 by the City Council through an act of the State Legislature. The CRA is a special district that is dedicated to the revitalization of our historic downtown. The CRA seeks to encourage "a vibrant mixed use district that celebrates and reflects ecological and space heritage and culture." The Community Redevelopment Act (Chapter 163, Part III) provides Florida cities with the ability to designate "community redevelopment areas" per Chapter 189 of the Florida Statutes to eliminate slum and blight. Through special funding tools, such as tax increment financing and grants, the CRA is able to complete special projects that include the development of recreation and open space and streetscape improvements. The CRA's fiscal year runs from October 1 to September 30. A copy of the CRA budget can be viewed by clicking the link to the left.

What is Tax Increment Financing?

Tax increment financing provides most of the funding for the CRA. This special funding tool provides all increases in taxes within the CRA beyond the year the CRA was established into a redevelopment fund. The year the CRA was established is the "base year." Any increases in taxes beyond the base year are provided to the redevelopment fund. Therefore, as the property taxes increase due to redevelopment projects, the redevelopment also increases. Tax increment financing is not an additional tax to the property owner.


What else does the CRA entail?

The CRA has design guidelines for new development and rehabilitation. These guidelines regulate façade treatments, infrastructure, landscaping, and site design. All building improvements and site plans must be reviewed by the Community Development Department and all projects of greater than 1.5 acres in property area or 10,001 square feet of building area must be approved by the Community Redevelopment Agency, which includes a public hearing. For more information regarding the guidelines, please contact Tim Ford at (321) 567-3860.
