Cape Coral City Council took its first step toward a takeover of the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency, which is made up of a board of appointed residents. It voted 5-3 on Oct. 18 to terminate all existing CRA board members Nov. 30, and an ordinance will be introduced in a couple of weeks to allow Council to absorb the duties of the CRA.
