Avon Park CRA gives MLK Day back to community
AVON PARK — A vocal majority won over the Avon Park Community Redevelopment Agency Board on Thursday.
The Board, consisting of the members of the Avon Park City Council, voted to reject the previous vote to have the CRA sponsor the event.
Instead, they have asked Southside Avon Park community members to bring their plans for the event to the next CRA meeting at 5 p.m. on Oct. 28.
Board member Parke Sutherland said the Southside CRA Advisory Board had planned on a four-day event starting on Jan. 17, 2014, and ending on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 20.
