On September 7, 2017, the Medford Urban Renewal Agency (MURA) Board decided to proceed with a substantial amendment to the Urban Renewal Plan. The Substantial Amendment will serve to increase the maximum indebtedness and possibly expand the Urban Renewal boundary.
Next step: The MURA Board (City Council) has hired a consultant to identify potential future improvements that will eliminate blight, improve depreciating property values, and attract aesthetically pleasing, job-producing private investments within the Urban Renewal district. The consultant will also assess the benefits of amending the district boundary. There will be multiple opportunities for public involvement during this process.
