Frederick Urban Renewal Authority

Overview

On May 14, 2013, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to establish the Frederick Urban Renewal Authority (FURA). FURA has the ability to establish tax-increment financing districts in Frederick in order to spur reinvestment in areas of physical or economic decline.  

If you own property in Frederick and are interested in making needed improvements to that property, you may qualify for tax benefits to do so. Please contact Ryan Johnson, Assistant Town Manager at 720-382-5538 for more information.

Map of Urban Renewal Locations

An urban renewal authority may be established for the purpose of eliminating slum or blighted areas within a municipality and clearing such areas for development or redevelopment. If an urban renewal plan is approved for a specific area, Tax Increment Financing may be used to remove the blight. Visit our Urban Renewal Map to see areas that are currently identified by FURA.
