Redmond City Councilors will consider Tuesday night, whether to move forward in the process to expand the City's Urban Renewal District. The URD was established in 1995, but most of the projects are finishing up and now the City wants to expand to the City center area downtown. Redmond's Community Development Director Heather Richards says action will be taken at the meeting Tuesday night. “And especially what that does is it launched the public process. The public process is about three to four months worth of public hearings. The intent of the public process is for the City Council to hear from the community; what do you think of this plan, do you support it? Do you want us to move forward with it? And then they take final action on adopting it. Tentatively right now, it’s scheduled for April.” The URD attempts to stimulate economic investment in blighted areas. Some of the projects slated to receive Urban Renewal District funds include a downtown family entertainment and recreation center.
