The Redevelopment Agency is charged primarily with undertaking programs and projects to revitalize Provo’s central business district (CBD) and the surrounding central-city neighborhoods. The Redevelopment Agency also can be called upon to provide tax increment financing for economic development projects outside the CBD and central neighborhoods.
Provo has also designated the Redevelopment Agency to administer the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships, and other HUD programs.
We commit to this mission out of a personal and professional desire to improve the lives of others.
The Redevelopment Agency of Provo City is a separate agency from Provo City, established under the section of Utah law governing “community development and renewal agencies” (Title 17C, Utah Code). In spite of this measure of autonomy under State law, the City Council is the governing board of the Redevelopment Agency and the Mayor is the Chief Executive Officer. The Redevelopment Agency also employs six full-time staff.
Downtown Provo has gained a reputation over the years as one of the most charming, thriving downtowns in the Intermountain West. The Downtown is unique among Provo's commercial districts for its combination of historic storefronts, tree-lined streets, assorted restaurants, modern office buildings and civic institutions. Truly, Downtown Provo stands apart as a wonderfully distinctive place.
With the recent Center Focus effort to develop a vision for Downtown's future and to implement that vision, Downtown Provo is in the midst of a resurgence unmatched in many decades. To those who wish to help in bringing this Downtown Provo vision to reality, we say welcome to the team! Downtowns are complex organisms, and so the strategies to meld the best of Provo’s past with the possibilities of the future will involve committed, sustained cooperation of many different stakeholders.
If you already have a stake in Downtown Provo, we look forward to working together to implement this Downtown Strategic Plan. If you are contemplating becoming a stakeholder, please know that in Downtown Provo you will find great ideas, infectious enthusiasm and many wonderful people.
