Immokalee property tax values, revenue increases

Immokalee property tax values, revenue increases For the first time in seven years the property tax values in Immokalee - and, therefore, revenues increased in 2014, according to Collier County tax collections.  The figures were reported earlier this week by Bradley Muckel, executive director of the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), to the Collier County Commission sitting as the formal governing body of the Immokalee CRA.  The increase was a small one - jumping from $223,000 in 2013 to just $266,000 in 2014 - but significant given how hard hit Immokalee was by the Great Recession.  "Any sign of growth is a good thing," Muckel told the lawmakers.  However, he cautioned, those figures are only one-third of what they were prior to the recession when Immokalee tax revenues hovered

Enterprise Zones headed for sunset. Unless something drastic happens in the second half of the Florida Legislature's 2015 session, it appears Enterprise Zones in Florida - including Immokalee's - will die a natural death at the end of the year.  Enterprise Zones offer the most cost-effective program in the Sunshine State for job creation, entrepreneurial encouragement and a ticket out of poverty for small businesses seeking to find a firm financial footing in today’s marketplace.  In Immokalee alone, its Enterprise Zone has provided over $200,000 in tax incentives and other assistance to nearly 20 businesses over the past decade.  Revived in 2005, the Enterprise Zone program in Florida is set to sunset at the end of 2015, meaning those tax incentives and other small business support will

Immokalee Construction projects moving along on schedule.

Immokalee Construction projects moving along on schedule. Two major street projects are moving on - or ahead of - schedule in Immokalee.  The storm water drainage project at the western end of Immokalee Drive and the sidewalk construction project on Colorado Avenue will, when completed, make Immokalee a much drier and safer community.  The larger of two projects is the $2.1 million storm water drainage system, sidewalks and roadway improvements to Immokalee Drive, which began at North 16th Street and moved to the west. The second, which is primarily a pedestrian safety initiative, is a $500,000 drainage installation and sidewalk construction project along both sides of Colorado Avenue, from South First to South Ninth Streets in the vicinity of Pinecrest Elementary School.   Money for both projects came through Coll
