Gainesville CRA. with their facade grants program is leading the way in helping businesses and building owners improving the look and image of their properties specially the ones in East gainesville . With their professional and knowledgeable staff they offer the experience and the professional vision to grow and thrive in East gainesville . I highly recommend all business owners and property owners especialy commercial properties in East gainesville to contact and inquire about the many possibilities CRA could offer from experience and knowledge to help business property owners thrive and not just survive in east gainesville. Many thanks to everyone at the CRA of Gainesville.great job!!!

The Gainesville CRA is an active participant in the growth of our community and an excellent asset for Gainesville to have. Their projects — from the Hampton Inn building to Hawthorne Rd's excellent Southern Charm Cafe have revitalized their locations and made it more fun to live in Gainesville.

Very happy to announce that we won an International Development Council award for our partnership with the Sequential Artists Workshop! Our creative outreach effort was recognized with a 2015 Bronze Excellence in ‪#EconomicDevelopment Award in the #AnnualReport  category for small cities (with a population of 25,000-200,000).
More than 31,000 copies of the “Sunday comics” annual report parody were distributed through +The Gainesville Sun newspaper, +City of Gainesville, Florida City Hall and other outlets—increasing the accessibility of our work. A local arts school headquartered in our ‪Downtown‬ redevelopment area hand-drew 16 custom illustrations about our projects!
With more than 4,500 members across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand & other nations, the ‪IEDC‬ is the world’s largest professional organization for economic development practitioners.

In classic summer fashion, Gainesville is welcoming world-class muralist #Never2501 with a stormy downpour... but a little rain sure hasn't stopped this artist's brushstrokes! Stay tuned for the 4 day unfurling of beautiful ‪#Downtown ‬#Gainesville #streetart --totally freestyle at #HeartGNV
