Background Discussion

CRA advisory boards were established by resolution in 2003.

Initial board meetings began in 2004 and continued through April 2014.

The Board approved Ordinance 14-028 establishing the Southwest County Improvement District on June 3, 2014, to become effective October 1, 2014.

The Board approved R-14-88 and R-14-89, respectively, abolishing the CRA advisory boards June 17, 2014, and passed motions authorizing repeal of the bylaws of each advisory board.

The advisory boards, during their ten year span, had a number of notable accomplishments meeting regularly since 2004. A collage of projects is attached.
