The City of Eagle Lake offers a great climate for the prospective business owner. A progressive municipality with a "small town" atmosphere and an ideal location with accessibility to the major activity centers in Polk County and beyond. The City is close to the Bartow Regional Airport and related industrial development areas. There are many opportunities for development, redevelopment and a quality of life with amenities for employers, employees and residents. The City has abundant recreational opportunities that include access to Eagle Lake and Lake McLeod. Under the watchful eye of the Polk County Sheriff's Department, Eagle Lake is a safe environment to raise a family. There are three schools within the City limits, 2 elementary schools and Lake Region High School. Eagle Lake is an ideal place to work and live; a City that is planning for future growth without sacrificing its small town character. The CRA is the City's blueprint for the future and the future is now! We invite you to visit Eagle Lake and see for yourself! 


The City of Eagle Lake established a Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) in June of 2000.  The establishment of the CRA was authorized under Chapter 163, Part III, Florida Statutes, the "Community Redevelopment Act of 1969."  Generally, the act allows a local government to declare a defined area in need of actions to eliminate slums and blight, and to appoint a Community Redevelopment Agency to devise and recommend a plan for the redevelopment of the area.  The intent of the plan is to describe a comprehensive and visionary approach to long term redevelopment and to spell out the steps that must be taken to reach short term objectives along the way.
