Welcome to the website of the Sebastian Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA).
The City of Sebastian originally created a CRA as a means to ensure that the downtown and surrounding vicinity would develop with a coherent community vision, and to encourage reinvestment and redevelopment throughout the CRA. Recommendations from the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council’s (TCRPC) 2000 and 2001 charettes have also been incorporated into the redevelopment plan.
The City originally created the CRA in 1995 for an area generally east of the FEC Railroad right-of-way to the eastern City limits and subsequently adopted a redevelopment plan for that area. In 2003, that area was expanded to include the area commonly known as the “Sebastian Boulevard Triangle” where C.R. 512 splits into eastbound and westbound lanes; as well as including some of the industrial land south of C.R. 512.
In September 2010, the CRA Master Plan underwent a minor update intended primarily to refresh the CRA’s capital improvements program, specifically to include a relatively detailed schedule of capital improvements for years 2010 to 2015.
