Restoration of the Historic Trail
The Historic Trail Markers were initially installed in 1995 with a Department of Historical Resources grant awarded to the Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community, P.E.C. Each marker comprised of historic facts and land markers of Eatonville, creating an immersive journey through the development of the oldest municipality incorporated by African Americans. 20+ years later, the CRA Board approved the restoration and instillation of the signs. Since the project's completion visitors from afar have explored Eatonville using the Historic Trail Markers as their guide. For more info visit Dust Tracks on a Road Historic Trail Tour
West and Fitzgerald Street Repaved
West and Fitzgerald Street were approved for repaving on October 16, 2018 by the CRA board. This project is supported under the CRA Plan, Element 3.2, which encourages high performance infrastructure and environmental enhancements. In creating a viable community, high quality infrastructure is necessary to support existing and future development for overall sustainability. Streets Fitzgerald, West and Jonotey are key roadways through the community. The project was funded in partnership by the Town of Eatonville Public Works Department and the CRA. The project was completed on February 27, 2019.
