Many Colorado communities are curious about districts and authorities that can focus on redevelopment, reuse, and place management in the downtown or commercial areas of your community. Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Downtown Development Authorities (DDAs), and Urban Renewal Authorities (URAs) represent some of the tools available to help municipalities implement the vision through public-private partnerships. What are the differences between these tools, how are they formed, governed, and how do they work? Could this be a tool to help with downtown development in your town?
Why sit in a conference room to learn, when you can hit the road and tour some projects?! Colorado Municipal League (CML) & Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) are pleased to announce our second annual financing mechanism mobile tour. We will visit projects and partner groups in Arvada, Golden, Lakewood, + Wheat Ridge to encourage an interactive experience to showcase what these tools can do, how they work with others, and what their plan is for the future.
Join CML & DCI as we invite our member cities and towns to see some DDA projects and talk to the officials and business owners involved.
