What Does Urban Renewal Look Like in Littleton?

Why You Need the Right to Vote on Urban Renewal Plans

Urban Renewal is where the City Council declares an area as slum and blighted.

Once the Council “finds” the area to be slum and blight, the City’s urban renewal authority (LIFT) can condemn property and collect taxes belonging to other taxing entities in the urban renewal area.

The other taxing entities include Littleton Public Schools, Arapahoe County, South Suburban Parks and Recreation District, and Urban Drainage and Flood Control District.
