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
