The South Atlantic Redevelopment Area Plan is another example of good ideas that have died on the vine for lack of resources and a lack of focused attention. It's also another situation where devotion of substantial resources to a single project has rendered the Community Redevelopment Area unable to do much more. Clearly, communities that lack CRAs still manage to undertake development initiatives, often by pulling together multiple sources of funds. 'Go big or go home' isn't the only way to catalyze community improvements. Prioritization and a strategic approach to improvements are key, as is a commitment to pursue funds from a range of resources.
