Urban Renewal

Download the Urban Renewal Strategic Plan (12MB)
The purpose of urban renewal is to stimulate economic development through private investment in a specific area of the community. Tax increment financing, ORS Chapter 457, is used in blighted areas where private development has stagnated or is not feasible. Public funds are needed to change those conditions.

The types of urban renewal activities undertaken generally include land assembly, development of infrastructure, and public amenities such as streets, utility lines lighting, public open spaces, and parks.

Goals


Consistent with the goals and policies of the Economic Development element of the city’s comprehensive plan, the Urban Renewal Agency strives to meet or exceed the following policies:
  • The city shall protect existing and planned industrial and commercial lands from incompatible land uses, and will attempt to minimize deterrents to desired industrial and commercial development.
  • The city's public facilities and transportation and capital improvements plan, priorities will be established to ensure adequate public facilities are available to support desired industrial and commercial development. A high priority shall be given to improvements to storm drainage, traffic circulation, and safety.
  • To ensure overall economic stability the city will attempt to coordinate its policies with those of Clackamas and Washington county's overall economic development plan (OEDP).
