Commercial & Redevelopment Programs
The CRA, although a government agency, is run like a business under the guidance of a Board made up of the North Miami City Council. The CRA is taking a holistic approach to the elimination of blight, seeking to implement an aggressive program to improve the quality of life for all residents.

The City has almost no vacant land, so where will the new affordable housing units be built? The answer lies in both redevelopment and rehabilitation of existing units and providing height and density allowances in the comprehensive plan and accompanying land development regulations to accommodate more units on the same land area. The NMCRA, in partnership with the City’s Community Planning & Development Department, is working on the revisions to those development guidelines to provide an appropriate regulatory environment to foster creation of affordable housing.
