Immokalee sidewalks ready for school - Immokalee CRA

Immokalee sidewalks ready for school - Immokalee CRA The Immokalee CRA has been working feverishly over the summer to complete its Colorado Avenue Improvements project in time for the start of the fall school season. The project included concrete sidewalks, grading & new sod on both sides of Colorado Avenue from South First to South Ninth Streets in the densely populated downtown Immokalee area. Prior to installing the sidewalks, the CRA filled the open drainage ditches with concrete drainage pipe and fill dirt in order to create a level area for the sidewalks along the roadway.    Colorado Avenue is the primary pedestrian access facility for families accessing both Pinecrest Elementary School and the Immokalee Daycare Center.

Florida's Enterprise Zone program to end; some incentives remain

Florida's Enterprise Zone program to end; some incentives remain Florida's Enterprise Zone program, one of the most cost effective incentive programs in Sunshine State history, will vanish at the end of 2015.  The Florida Legislature failed to renew the program, which was by law set to sunset at the end of year, but replaced it - in a way - with some other more limited tax and other economic incentive programs.  Created by Florida lawmakers of a past era, the program was designed to be a ticket out of poverty for small businesses seeking to find a firm financial footing in today’s marketplace. In Immokalee alone, its Enterprise Zone provided over $200,000 in tax incentives and other assistance to nearly 20 businesses over the past decade.  The replacement bill - signed into law June 16 by Florida Gov.
