The City has several RDAs within its jurisdictional boundaries, two of which partially overlap with the City’s Central Business District. To comply with A.R.S. 42-6209 F., these RDAs with portions that lie within the City’s Central Business District had to be reviewed by the City by October 1, 2020, and either be renewed, modified, or terminated. Through this recertification​​, the boundaries of the Downtown RDA were expanded to include an area that encompasses eight total RDAs along with areas not previously in an RDA. <br></p></div>10_self_selfGP0|#19ee1de5-76aa-4aad-8cb2-f40fd8a16a5d;L0|#019ee1de5-76aa-4aad-8cb2-f40fd8a16a5d|RDA Boundary Update;GTSet|#a34b90d3-8600-496b-a17d-9e6a6a91b4a4;GPP|#838abc4f-856d-4a1a-8b66-a28a5c77e791;GPP|#9b756e7d-3a95-4121-819b-74d055e8995a;GPP|#41a9ade5-c6dd-4fde-b0e5-5e7e8ca254daNavcolorblockRed7,031 properties surveyed for blight indicatorsBlueBlock
