Urban Renewal Board Vision Statement Discussion December 21, 2020 Background “In 1996, the Austin Revitalization Authority (ARA) began developing a Master Plan for the Central East Austin area with an emphasis on redevelopment of the 11th and 12th Street Corridors. A Community Redevelopment Plan (CRP) for East 11th and 12th Streets was also developed. In 1999, City Council passed a resolution in support of the general concepts envisioned in the Master Plan. Subsequently, the corridors were declared urban renewal areas and the CRP, in effect, was translated into the East 11th and 12th Urban Renewal Plan (URP).” Source: Central East Austin Neighborhood Plan 12/21/2020 Urban Renewal Board 2 URP Purpose, Authority and Scope, 1999 “The overall goals and action priorities of this URP reflect a broad consensus of residents, businesses, property owners, institutions, and community activists. The consensus is the result of substantial cumulative planning and revitalization efforts over a period of three years. The fundamental purpose of this plan is to empower community-based groups and individuals to participate as strong and equal partners of the City and the URA in carrying out all of the action programs and public and private improvements which will result in the realization of Austin’s long-term community vision.” Source: Original East 11th and 12th Street Urban Renewal Plan 12/21/2020 Urban Renewal Board 3 San Antonio’s Urban Renewal Agency “The Urban Renewal Agency for the City of San Antonio, referred to as San Antonio Development Agency (SADA), was established by voter referendum in 1957.
