1. Independent blight study or conditions survey has been prepared and presented first, to the municipalities urban redevelopment authority or board, and second, to their Council;2. Market analysis has been completed in order to determine the potential for future uses within the urban renewal area, and their potential timing; 3. Urban renewal plan document and supporting financing plan (impact analysis) have been prepared;4. Stakeholder have been contacted and invited to comment on future uses and required improvements within the area;5. Council accepts the findings of the conditions survey and adopts (by resolution) the urban renewal plan.
When a redevelopment project is being planned, the urban renewal authority or board analyzes how much additional property and/or sales taxes may be generated once it is completed. That “tax increment” then can be used by the urban renewal entity either to finance the issuance of bonds or to reimburse developers for a portion of their project costs. In either case, the new tax revenue that is created must be used for improvements that have a public benefit and that support the redevelopment effort, such as site clearance, streets, utilities, parks, the removal of hazardous materials or conditions, or site acquisition.
