In 2019, Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) will once again partner with Colorado Municipal League (CML), Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck (BHFS), and our Colorado URA Committee and Sponsors to develop and share our Urban Renewal Authority (URA) Board Training Series. The first session of URA Board Training will be held in Lamar on May 6th from 12:00 PM-4:00 PM and will include both 101 and 201 sessions to both educate individuals on the basics of urban renewal and also take the conversation further for more advanced urban renewal practice with experienced URA Board Members.
Building an informed and aware board of directors for your URA creates a stronger network of urban renewal advocates across the state. This is especially important as many of our URAs are adapting to comply with recent legislation and to expand partner networks for urban renewal. DCI has received strong feedback that these sessions are helpful and necessary to broaden the understanding of urban renewal, tax increment financing, and the role of the board and staff in fostering quality redevelopment projects.
Please share this event information with your staff and board to attend our URA Board Workshop specifically tailored for individuals serving as URA board members. The training will be equally relevant to both appointed and city council boards.
