Martin County Commissioners are considering cutting the Community Redevelopment Agencies from the county budget. CRAs are areas in the county that receive extra funding for projects to help revitalize the area. The county has given more than $23 million to CRAs since 2000. The CRAs are Old Palm City, Rio, Hobe Sound, Indiantown, Jensen Beach, Port Salerno and Golden Gate.

More than 100 residents along with the CRA chairmen and chairwomen met with county leaders Monday to voice their concerns and support for the CRAs.

Opponents of the CRAs say they’re concerned about where the money is being spent that is set aside for CRAs.
