Earth DayPHURA was established by the City of Phoenix in 2005 as a long-term investment strategy to fund and construct capital improvement projects in the Urban Renewal Plan boundary area.

The purpose of the Urban Renewal Plan [adopted by the City in 2005] is to eliminate blighting influences found in the Urban Renewal Area, implement goals and objectives of the City of Phoenix Comprehensive Plan, and assist in meeting the City’s economic development objectives through the redevelopment of key sites, property rehabilitation, improving infrastructure in the urban renewal area, and assisting with the construction of needed public facilities.

The powers and duties of the Agency are provided by Chapter 457 of the Oregon Revised Statutes, and as authorized by the Urban Renewal Plan. It is a separate legal and financial entity (not a commission or committee).
