Urban Renewal

The Commerce City Urban Renewal Authority (URA) identifies and establishes slum and blighted areas for redevelopment. The URA is a public-private-partnership, where the public investment is supported by tax increment financing while the majority of the project is funded by the private sector. Tax increment financing, known as a TIF, is the amount of additional tax collected within the urban renewal area after the URA project begins.
