Miami Gardens considers creating a CRA

Miami Gardens considering tax district to create performing arts center

Miami Herald 3/24/16

Miami Gardens is re-exploring plans to create a community redevelopment agency, which would siphon property taxes from general services like police and transit in order to focus spending within the city…  The city wants to use some of the funding opportunities provided through a CRA to build a performing arts center.

As the city makes these plans, CRAs in Miami-Dade are under increased scrutiny, and a grand jury report released in February criticized many of the area tax districts saying that their focus centered on personal projects and not on the goals of eliminating slum and blight.
