Neighborhood Revitalization



Redevelopment is a proactive tool that is intended to encourage reinvestment, revitalization and reuse in designated areas. It is generally used when conventional planning techniques are unable to address the complex, unique or extreme nature of a problem or opportunity. Tempe Redevelopment Staff works closely with residents, businesses, property owners, and stakeholders to advance concepts and strategies which guide future development while providing the tools and resources necessary to achieve the desired outcome.

  • Ensure the provision of adequate infrastructure

  • Attract new development in targeted areas
  • Develop policies and programs to assist with the supply of workforce housing
