Preview Of Century’s New CRA Redevelopment Effort To Be Presented

April 14, 2018

The Town of Century will hold a Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) meeting Tuesday to “Envision Century”.

At the meeting, a preview of the draft CRA plan will be presented.

The meeting will be held from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Century Business Center at 400 Pond Street. Refreshments will be served with a meet and greet at 5:30, and the formal presentation and discussion will begin at 5:45 p.m.

The town previously declared a portion of Century as “blighted” as part of the process to form the CRA.

Once the CRA is in place and operating, it will work to improve conditions within the area. As property tax values rise, most of the increase is funneled back into the redevelopment area for further improvements.

The CRA area is 510 acres, bounded by Jefferson Avenue to the south, Jefferson Avenue to the east, State Road 4 to the north and the centerline of North Century Boulevard to the west. It also extends north on the east side of North Century Boulevard to include commercial properties up to, and including, the former Burger King.
