The Bayfront Community Redevelopment District is located within the City of Palm Bay in Brevard County, Florida. The Redevelopment District in the City lies just west of and along the Indian River Lagoon, south of the City of Melbourne and north of the Town of Malabar. The area was the first to be settled in the City. U.S. Route-1 or as it is known locally and historically, the Dixie Highway, is the main thoroughfare that runs through the District from north to south in a spine like fashion. The western boundary of the District runs from the Driskell Heights Neighborhood (aka Powell’s Subdivision) in the north to Robert J. Conlan Boulevard to Palm Bay Road and then to the Florida East Coast Railroad tracks to the Town of Malabar border in the south. The total area encompasses 1070 acres (±).
