CRA Leadership Structure
The Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency is governed by the CRA Board (composed of the Gainesville City Commission) and reports to the City Manager. The CRA is also guided by four citizen advisory boards representing each district. The current FY16 CRA Board is led by CRA Chair Craig Carter, Chair Pro-Tempore Helen Warren, Member Lauren Poe, Member Adrian Hayes-Santos, Member Charles Goston, Member Harvey Budd, and Member Todd Chase. Sarah Vidal-Finn serves as the CRA Executive Director.
