Unleashing value while preserving history is the theme of the Rio Community Redevelopment Area Plan. Due to its waterfront location, and mix of property types and uses, Rio has the potential to take its place as one of the many desirable places to live in Martin County.

Investment in sewer, water and roadway improvements are helping create a town center for this historic community. The Rio Community Redevelopment Plan was adopted in 2001 and revised in 2009, then again in 2015.

The Rio Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) meets regularly at the Langford Park Vince Bocchino Community Center on Dixie Highway and provides advice and recommendations to the Community Redevelopment Agency regarding the implementation of projects adopted within the Rio CRA Plan.
