Medford Urban Renewal Project - The Medford Urban Renewal Agency (MURA) is moving forward with an amendment to the current Urban Renewal Plan. An advisory committee has been appointed to recommend programs and projects to address blight and improve depreciating property values in the Liberty Park neighborhood, which is bounded by Jackson Street, McAndrews, Biddle and Court/Central. The proposed amendment would infuse the Liberty Park neighborhood with approximately $17 million and direct approximately $2 million to seismically improving buildings in the downtown area.
MURA Advisory Committee - The advisory committee met three times. The first meeting was composed of an urban renewal 101 and an initial project discussion. City staff and the urban renewal consultants were given research tasks from the initial project discussions and the second meeting was a more in-depth project discussion and preparation for the Community Input Meeting held on January 31 at Kids Unlimited. The final meeting of the advisory committee was held directly after the Community Input Meeting to discuss the feedback that was collected.
Here are some of the projects being evaluated by the Advisory Committee before their final recommendation to the MURA Board (City Council).Stay Connected - In order to stay informed of upcoming opportunities to provide input and comments please look to the "Latest News" section of this webpage for dates of public hearings, open houses, outreach events, and related meetings.
