Throughout the years, the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) has acquired properties in the West Atlantic Neighborhood for future redevelopment in order to meet the goals and objectives of the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Plan, Comprehensive Plan, Downtown Master Plan and West Atlantic Avenue Redevelopment Plan.


The following information is being provided to the CRA Board as an update to the progress of future redevelopment in the Northwest Neighborhood within the NW 600 Block.


CRA Initiative

CRA submitted a Future Land Use Amendment (FLUM) & Rezoning for five (5) properties in the NW 600 Block to Delray Beach Development Services for review: 8-2-19.

-                     Future Land Use Map Amendment: Low Density (LD) Residential to Commercial Core (CC).

-                     Rezoning: Residential (R-1-A) to Central Business District (CBD).

Note: Central Business District (CBD) Zoning allows for a variety of uses, including multi-family.


CRA presented to the Planning and Zoning Board: 11-18-19.

-                     Planning and Zoning had concerns related to the transition from commercial to residential.

-                     The CRA requested to continue the item to address concerns. See City initiative below.

This would allow for a gentle transition from residential to commercial.
