City of Panama City, FL Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Downtown North CRA – Clean-up and Abatement Program (CAP) Community

Community Development

 

   

 

The City of Panama City’s Downtown North Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) contracted with the Gulf Coast Workforce Board to help support the community engagement pilot program. The Gulf Coast Workforce Board’s facilitated three main community engagement activities. These activities were educational workshops, leadership development, and community engagement. A contract for $10,000 was awarded to the Gulf Coast Workforce Board to fund this project. The Gulf Coast Workforce Board conducted a competitive bid process to find an individual or company to assist in this work. Carpe Diem Community Solutions won the bid. Carpe Diem Community Solutions acted as a servant leader to facilitate this project’s work.

 

During the seven-month pilot program, the Glenwood community was strengthened in a number of ways, including the visual improvement that builds community pride as well as reinforcing community engagement. During the project five educational workshops were planned; one was cancelled. Educational workshop topics ranged from fire safety to community policing. Various departments from the City of Panama City served as guest speakers for each of the four workshops. Additionally, four community engagement events were conducted. These engagement events involved cleaning the yards of nine individuals living within the CRA North boundary area who do not possess the physical ability or financial resources to take care of their yards.
