The Edgewater Redevelopment Authority is a separate legal entity which exercises powers enumerated in Colorado Revised Statutes §31-25-101 et seq. Specifically, the Authority is responsible for curing blight conditions in the City of Edgewater pursuant to the Authority's adopted Urban Renewal Plan.
The Urban Renewal Program is a statutory program that allows municipalities - through their urban renewal agencies - to revitalize substandard, decadent or blighted open areas for residential, commercial, industrial, business, governmental, recreational, educational, hospital or other purposes. Urban renewal projects help municipalities redevelop deteriorated areas by providing the economic environment needed to attract and support private investment.
