Most cities have rundown areas with deteriorating infrastructure vacant storefronts declining property values and other factors that reduce the quality of life and economic vitality of the community. BURAs mission is to encourage investment and reinvestment within targeted areas of the community while strengthening the tax base of the whole city and growing the areas job base. BURA leverages resources and partnerships to deliver high quality community improvements. The Brighton City Council has approved several urban renewal plans that encompass much of downtown Brighton and targeted areas to the north and south. These areas are characterized by a variety of blight factors. BURA is an economic catalyst for those areas using its authority to leverage funds and forge creative partnerships with private developers businesses and other investors. BURA may assist in property acquisition development financing public improvements or development approval. Since its inception BURA has attracted more than 430 million in private investment and created or retained approximately 900 jobs in the urban renewal areas. WHAT WE DO Without public-private partnerships to direct private investment into blighted areas there would be no new revenue as development on those properties would not occur.
