In the interest of creating partnerships to enhance properties within HC-1, the Wauchula Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) issued an RFP for the purpose of increasing residential living in the downtown core. This area has seen many enhancements over the past decade and, as the heart of Hardee County, the CRA wants to continue to encourage progress through financial and/or other incentives that will further the goals set forth in the CRA Master Plan Update 2010. Those goals include, but are not limited to, increasing the intensity of commercial activity in the downtown core while also providing much needed housing.
