HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — Redevelopment Management Associates (RMA) has been selected by the City of Hallandale Beach and the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to create a new vision plan for the City and to update the CRA plan in order to stimulate economic development activities, attract investment and spur redevelopment/revitalization.
RMA, the award-winning redevelopment firm, will begin the process with a series of public input meetings commencing on July 14, 2018 with a Citywide Visioning Open House. Visit www.COHBCRA.org for all meeting dates and details.
“RMA is honored to be partnering with the City of Hallandale Beach,” said Sharon McCormick, RMA’s Director of Business Attraction and Marketing “We see tremendous growth potential for this community, and we are looking forward to connecting with residents, business owners and civic leaders in order to create a vision for the city through interaction and consensus building.”
RMA has already mailed a notice to all residents, informing them of the upcoming schedule of meetings (see list below). During these public forums, RMA team members immerse themselves in the community, engaging with residents and business owners to learn about key attractions, concerns and challenges to overcome. RMA’s BusinessFlareTM approach to redevelopment encompasses five key areas: Preserve, Enhance, Expose, Invest and Capitalize.
“Through this civic engagement process, we have the opportunity to explore the authentic character of a city, the points of pride throughout the community and the specific challenges that need to be addressed,” said Kevin Crowder, RMA’s Economic Development Director.
During these public meetings, in order to enhance transparency, RMA will be beta testing a program from www.polleverywhere.com, which allows audience members to respond to questions via the webpage or text, offering a real time polling report. For those unable to attend the meetings, an online survey will be distributed via email.
