Bringing Vision to Reality

Margate Community Redevelopment Agency

The City of Margate has made great progress since establishing its Community Redevelopment Agency in 1996. Streetscape improvements, including the buffer walls on Atlantic Boulevard and the median landscape on State Road 7, have transformed the physical appearance of these primary roadways. Other beautification efforts, including adaptive reuse of aging properties and facade upgrades funded through the MCRA’s grant program, have improved the appearance of the redevelopment area. These activities have resulted in private investment that has stimulated the local real estate market.

The MCRA has undertaken several successful activities in the past few years including landscaping of the commercial corridors, architectural design guidelines for building renovations, façade grants, landscape grants, and new business recruitment. As a result, the tax base has grown, providing additional revenues to support future redevelopment activity. Realizing the opportunity to formulate a more progressive redevelopment strategy, the Agency authorized the preparation of the Redevelopment Plan Update in March 2001.
