MURA Board Decides How to Spend $19 Million
(Thursday, Dec. 7) -- The Medford Urban Renewal Agency (MURA) Board has hired a consultant to identify potential projects that will eliminate blight, improve depreciating property values, and attract aesthetically pleasing, job-producing private investments within the Urban Renewal district. This consultant will work with the MURA Substantial Amendment Advisory Committee to propose project ideas to the MURA Board (City Council).
 
Recently, the MURA Board directed the Substantial Amendment Advisory Committee to come up with proposed projects north of Jackson Street (Liberty Park Neighborhood) with 10 percent of the nearly $20 million budget going toward seismic retrofitting for downtown Medford. There will be multiple opportunities for public involvement during this process.
