Why did the City amend the Downtown Urban Renewal Plan?

The City amended the Downtown Urban Renewal District Plan to add projects and to increase the spending limit in the Plan. The project types included in the Plan amendment are aimed at providing assistance to increase the supply of housing in the downtown core, encouraging private investment in downtown, and creating a safe and accessible downtown neighborhood where people want to live, work, visit, and play. The Agency Board has indicated they expect to direct a majority of the funds included in the new spending limit to support the creation of new housing in the downtown core. The actual project funding allocations will depend on future Agency Board budgetary action and project implementation.
