“The Bayshore Arts District” urban neighborhood on the shores of Naples Bay in Florida.

In addition to the pictures, discussions and the many links to web sites concerning attractions in the District, this site introduces “The Island Cottages in
a Naples Bay Village”, a unique single-family home community in The Bayshore Arts District which is under development by the owners of this web site.

The Importance of the
Bayshore Gateway Community
Redevelopment Agency CRA

The Bayshore/Gateway Redevelopment Agency (CRA) was created by the Collier County Board of County Commissioners in March 2000. The total area comprises 1,800 acres with a wide range of residential and commercial properties. Funding for the CRA comes from Tax Increment Finance (TIF). TIF is a portion of the property taxes generated above what was received by the county prior to CRA being established and does not result in any additional tax to the resident.
