URA Concept Plan for East end of Manitou AvenueOn November 21, 2006, City Council created the Urban Renewal Authority in order to encourage and promote redevelopment of the east end of Manitou Avenue (pdf). The URA Board was established to carry out the duties as set forth in C.R.S 31-25-101 (pdf) and the Board’s essential responsibilities are to invest tax increment revenues within the corridor and to work with property owners and the development community toward the revitalization of the district. The URA seeks to promote projects which will provide public benefit and demonstrate environmental and cultural sustainability and fiscal prudence. Board members are appointed by City Council and the Board is made up of seven (7) members. Experience in architecture, urban development, planning, real estate, and construction or green development is helpful.
