Economic Development

The Rockledge Community Redevelopment Agency remains continuously mindful of one of the most basic principles set forth to guide redevelopment agencies — preservation and expansion of the tax base through increasing economic development opportunities. The Agency understands that, in order to achieve this goal, it is important to not only recruit new businesses, but also to provide outreach and frequent contact to the existing business community. The Agency goes about this by providing a number of marketing initiatives to established Rockledge businesses.

To monitor the local business community to an even greater extent, Agency staff attends and provides a report on Agency activities each month to the City’s Business Development Committee, an 11-member body appointed by City Council, which implements a long-range program of business and industrial growth and educates the community on the need for increased business and industry.

In addition, the Agency has forged a highly productive and meaningful partnership with the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce and is closely aligned with the Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast.
