Cocoa Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)

Posted to Board/Committee Feature by Lauri Thompson

The City of Cocoa has a number of various boards and committees comprised of residents, business owners and others to assist City Council in their decision making processes. It is also a great way for residents to engage with and learn more

about their local government.

The Cocoa Community Redevelopment Agency was established in 1985 for the purposes of carrying out redevelopment projects and activities for the historic Cocoa Village community. The board consists of seven members, five of which are filled by the current

Cocoa City Council members and the other two positions are residents or business owners in the redevelopment area that are appointed by members of the Cocoa City Council.

There is one vacancy on this board, that will be filled by an appointee at a June or July Council meeting. For more information on this board, its members and activities, please visit our Cocoa CRA website.

Replacement of Lift Station 1 Near Indian River Lagoon

Posted to Capital Improvement Projects by Rachel Horst

Lift Station 1 is located just feet from the Indian River Lagoon with finished elevations well below the lagoon and flood surface, serving approximately 700 customers. During Hurricanes Matthew and Irma, influent flooded the dry well which housed electronics, pumps and associated equipment required for normal operations. This lift station does not have a generator and during relief efforts a portable generator has to be parked on the street to provide power.

This project includes demolition and replacement of the station with a submersible pumping system incorporated in the wet well, which will eliminate the need for confined space entry and improve worker safety as the pumps will be accessible via a slide rail system. The scope also includes the addition of an emergency generator.

The design for this project was completed in May 2021 and construction began earlier this year with a scheduled completion date this summer. The total budget for this project is $768,016. For more information on this project and other Utilities Department Capital Projects, visit the Utilities Capital Improvement Projects page.
