Under Florida law (Chapter 163, Part III), local governments are able to designate areas as Community Redevelopment Areas when certain conditions exist. Examples of conditions that can support the creation of a Community Redevelopment Area include, but are not limited to: the presence of substandard or inadequate structures, a shortage of affordable housing, inadequate infrastructure, insufficient roadways, and inadequate parking. To document that the required conditions exist, the local government must survey the proposed redevelopment area and prepare a Finding of Necessity. If the Finding of Necessity determines that the required conditions exist, the local government may create a Community Redevelopment Area to provide the tools needed to foster and support redevelopment of the targeted area.

The Florida Legislature provided the Interlocal Service Boundary Agreement Act (FS 171-Part II) as an alternative to FS 171-Part I for local governments regarding the annexation of territory into a municipality. The intent of the act is to encourage local governments to jointly determine how to provide services to residents in the most efficient and effective manner while balancing the needs of the community. As a result, the use of FS 171-Part II encourages intergovernmental coordination in planning, service delivery, and boundary adjustments. It promotes sensible municipal boundaries that reduce costs and avoids duplicating local services.
