Immokalee Zocalo now an award-winning public plaza!

Immokalee Zocalo now an award-winning public plaza! The Immokalee Zocalo - or public plaza - is now an award-winning town square!  The Zocalo, formally opened in May, won two prestigious 2014 Sand Dollar Awards presented by the Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA) for outstanding achievement in construction.  Well, okay, the awards were actually given to Surety Construction Company, which built the plaza, but the whole of Immokalee and the Immokalee CRA, which bought the land for the plaza at the corner of First Street and Main Street and paid for the plaza's construction, share in the awards.  The biggest Sand Dollar Award for the Zocalo was being named by the CBIA, the Best Public Works Project (under $100,000) in Collier County.  The cute, imaginative bicycle racks in the plaza also won the awa

Economic blueprint for Immokalee on the horizon!

Economic blueprint for Immokalee on the horizon! By next summer Immokalee could have a new economic blueprint for its future as "Florida in the 21st Century."  Development of the plan will be a joint project of the Immokalee CRA, Collier County government and the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, a five-county intergovernment body based in Fort Myers.  The plan will analyze the economic strengths and weaknesses of Immokalee, evaluate realistic opportunities for growth which complement the region's rural setting and develop a strategic plan for sustainable economic development in the decades to come. The project will cost $25,000 and will be funded by a state grant.  "Immokalee's economy focused primarily on agriculture in the past with many farms and packaging plants in

CRA moving ahead with more drainage, sidewalk projects The Immokalee CRA continues to improves the community's drainage system and continues improving safety by building additional sidewalks.  The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) has approved the plans and specifications for two additional projects, both part of a long-term Disaster Recovery Initiative, approved by the U.S. Congress. The larger of two projects is a $2.1 million storm water drainage system, sidewalks and roadway improvements to Immokalee Drive and North 16th Street. 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.

Immokalee CRA advances community's economic development

Immokalee CRA advances community's economic development The potential of Immokalee as a regional or state manufacturing, distribution center was on the mind of regional, state and private evaluators earlier this month when they toured the community.  The staff of two important state economic development agencies – Enterprise Florida and Florida's Heartland Regional Economic Development Initiative (FHREDI) – and a private investment firm – Site Selection Group – toured Immokalee July 15, hosted by the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA).  The purpose of the visit was to evaluate the community of Immokalee against other interior Florida communities for its readiness to compete for regional manufacturing and distribution development.

Immokalee CRA saves church $15,000 in sidewalk repairs

Immokalee CRA saves church $15,000 in sidewalk repairs By its presence and advocacy for all Immokaleans, the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) recently saved $15,000 for the Immokalee Church of the Nazarene in sidewalk costs.  The church, a long-standing and well-regarded congregation, is in the midst of a building campaign with the help of Thomas Riley Artisans Guild and what it doesn't need is an additional $15,000 tacked on top of its expansion effort.  Through negotiation with Collier County, the Immokalee CRA was able to reduce the costs of the sidewalk improvements and work out a solution for all - without costing Imokalee or Collier County taxpayers any additional costs.   "On behalf of my dad, Pastor Paul, and  the Immokalee Church of the Nazarene, I thank you for taking the time
