What We Do


Most cities have rundown, blighted areas that reduce the quality of life and economic vitality of the community. Brighton Urban Renewal Authority’s (BURA) mission is to encourage investment and reinvestment in these targeted areas while strengthening the tax base of the whole city. BURA leverages resources and partnerships to delivery high quality community improvements.


The Brighton City Council has approved several urban renewal plans that encompass much of downtown Brighton as well as targeted areas within the city. These areas are characterized by a variety of blight factors. BURA is an economic catalyst for those areas. It may assist in:

  • Development approval
  • Development financing
  • Property acquisition
  • Public improvements
