Residents question blight study as city eyes revitalizing area was created by ClearCreekCourant
Idaho Springs officials met with residents on March 26 to allay fears, and to explain what a blight study is and how an Urban Renewal Authority would work.
“I know people think the city is out to get you,” Mayor Mike Hillman told about 35 people who live in the areas being studied for blight, “but the Urban Renewal Authority will help property owners get low-interest financing to make improvements to their property. We assure the community this is not about taking, stealing or condemnation of property.”
