A Pro-Active Business Focus
Zephyrhills is involved in a number of development initiatives that include a two-fold economic development strategy. The first part of that vision includes a strong manufacturing/airport corridor where high paying jobs are created. The second part of the vision is a strong vibrant downtown where "community" can be enjoyed and the uniqueness of Zephyrhills can be showcased to locals and tourists alike. Three organizations that are working toward these goals are the Zephyrhills Economic Development Committee, the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and Main Street Zephyrhills.

The Zephyrhills Economic Development Committee is a group of community leaders from local businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, the City of Zephyrhills and Pasco County that meet monthly to discuss strategies to create good jobs in the community and increase standards of living.

The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
The CRA is an organization dedicated to creating a vibrant, revitalized central core district in Zephyrhills. The CRA was established in the early 1990's primarily for the purpose of improving 5th Avenue. The CRA set aside tax dollars for a specific purpose - improvement of downtown and surrounding City core districts. Currently it is trying to build community consensus and set priorities about how these dedicated funds should be spent going forward. The CRA has gathered some great ideas so far and looks forward to completing a plan of action sometime in 2011.
