About the Cocoa CRA
The Cocoa CRA is located from the northern boundary of Mitchell Street, with the western boundary at the Florida East Coast Railroad, eastern boundary along the western shoreline of the Indian River and the southern boundary at Rosa L. Jones Drive.
The Cocoa CRA was established through City of Cocoa Ordinance No. 10-81 (PDF) and is governed by a 7-member board, which meets on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 5 p.m. at Cocoa City Hall at 65 Stone Street in Cocoa Village.

Cocoa CRA Requesting Proposals
The Cocoa CRA is requesting proposals for the purchase and redevelopment of a 0.87 acre property situated at 603 Brevard Avenue, site of the former Cocoa City Hall. The property is available for community redevelopment in the hope that it will serve as a catalyst for a new mixed use development in Cocoa Village, accompanied by a shared use public parking facility that will substantially serve the demands for public parking, through a private public partnership with the Cocoa CRA, the Developer, and the City of Cocoa. The project will add to the commercial base of activity, serve as a focal point of connectivity, bringing together the North and South areas of the Village, and provide additional public parking for Cocoa Village visitors.
With the strong demand for housing in close proximity to Cocoa Village, the Cocoa CRA is requesting proposals for the purchase and redevelopment of a property situated at the southwest corner of Florida Avenue and Rosa L. Jones Blvd, FKA the Oaks Mobile Home Site. The site is comprised of one main parcel and a companion parcel totaling 4.87 acres. The development of 915 Florida Avenue is expected to serve as a catalyst for residential and commercial redevelopment in the western portion of Cocoa Village. If the RFP is successful, a developer will be selected and the project will get underway in 2018.
