During this past year Parkside and Team Port Charlotte have been mentioned in the context of community revitalization efforts and questions have arisen asking what’s the difference, or how are they related to one another? Parkside is a designated geographic area which became a CRA (Community Redevelopment Agency/Area) in 2010, approved unanimously by the Board of County Commissioners. It was recognized that the area was becoming increasingly blighted and blight typically spreads to surrounding areas so the CRA was established to revitalize the area.
Team Port Charlotte was organized as a nonprofit by concerned business people, citizens and other stakeholders to provide a voice for the community, to address quality of life issues and partner with the county and other organizations to contribute to the revitalization of Parkside.
