The Metropolitan Redevelopment Agency promotes redevelopment and economic revitalization in distressed neighborhoods. This is accomplished through strategic planning, creating metropolitan redevelopment areas, working with community groups and leaders to establish their priorities, purchasing property for projects that can act as an anchor for other new development in the area, issuing requests for proposals (RFPs) to develop the City owned property and then setting up public/private partnerships where the private sector is the developer.
