DIRECTION - keep it local POLICIES + disparity studY - next steps



Recommended Action:


Board direction is requested.





In the CRA May 14th Workshop meeting, the CRA Board will learn what has been done to positively impact the community and the economy through more local procurement of good and services and by growing the number of local firms associated with public capital improvements and/or redevelopment projects.


The Delray Beach CRA remains steadfast for growing a more resilient economy through “keep it local” initiatives and will follow the lead of the City of Delray Beach with any new efforts to create formal programs or policies which establish more participation of minority, small or local business enterprises in future procurement opportunities.


With that said, the Delray Beach CRA may advocate for and support enhanced “keep it local” efforts and campaigns and with renewed community partnerships, if the CRA Board supported that direction moving forward.
