South Cape Banner Program
The South Cape CRA Banner Program was created by Cape Coral Community Redevelopment Agency [CRA] and City of Cape Coral to identify the South Cape Community Redevelopment Area known as "South Cape" and add color and vitality to streetscapes. Banners are placed on available decorative street light poles year round to foster interest in the South Cape. The decorative street light poles are located on the north and south sides of Cape Coral Parkway between Del Prado Boulevard and Palm Tree Boulevard.

CRA Project – Lafayette Street Now Complete
The stormwater improvement phase of the demonstration project in the South Cape CRA was completed in February 2014. The City’s Public Works Department constructed an underground system to provide storage and treatment of run-off water on Lafayette Street from Vincennes Street to Cape Coral Street.
The system will collect run-off water from Lafayette Street and the adjacent properties within the CRA and provide water quality treatment, reducing pollutants entering the adjacent canals. Additional improvements included installing new curbs, brick-paved sidewalks, palm trees and on-street parking. The revamped Lafayette Street is now a more pedestrian-friendly area.
This $1.47 million demonstration project now serves as a example for future streetscape and drainage permitting projects. The project will add significant value to the CRA’s efforts to improve the downtown community. The second phase in FY 2014 ($150,000) will include decorative streetlights, LED uplighting of the palm trees.
