The West Grove Community Redevelopment Plan is the culmination of decades of community desires, public outreach, and requests to preserve and restore a vital residential and commercial district founded by Bahamian settlers in the early 1800s. The drafting and adoption of the Plan is a critical step for creating the West Grove Community Redevelopment Agency, as the Plan, including Funding Projections, is required by Florida Statute before making the Redevelopment Trust Fund. The concept of this redevelopment plan will guide the Agency’s goals and objectives, which will be implemented through realistic initiatives that are part of an overall funding strategy. This document is organized to allow the reader to follow and understand the evolution and development of this plan.
The Redevelopment Plan is designed to identify the main strategies, key and catalytic projects, and programs recommended to be implemented within a newly expanded area in West Coconut Grove. We must emphasize that this area’s redevelopment plan aims to strengthen the West Grove neighborhood and its residents, add vitality to its commercial corridors, reinvigorate its aging structures, and personify the strong sense of pride in this historic community.
