 Newport News-Times: Waldport considers second urban renewal district
The Waldport Urban Renewal Agency last week discussed creating a second urban renewal district in the town, voting to spend $16,000 for a consultant to help define just where it might be and how it might be designed.
Urban renewal is a device that enables a city to aid and focus growth and economic improvement in targeted areas, usually areas deemed suffering from blight.
A city's urban renewal agency can identify an area, freeze the property values within that area at a specific point in time, and use the increased taxes from the subsequent increase in value to cover the cost of urban renewal projects.

 NWS04: Council Decides to Delay Urban Renewal Decision
Urban renewal provides for the creation of a special tax district and dedicates the money to urban projects rather than putting it in the city's general fund.
With the urban renewal issue unresolved, the council directed Gleason to come up with a way of paying the city's share of the wetlands project that would have as little effect as possible on the city's general fund capital account.
Urban renewal would allow the city to use tax increment financing to pay for the wetlands, street and bike path projects, if enough money were available.

 Urban district views NCLB as an opportunity to improve schools   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
After all, the AYP results could be seen as disheartening for an urban school system that in recent years has won praise for its success in raising student academic performance and closing the racial achievement gap.
One advantage enjoyed by Norfolk, school officials say, is the district's five-year focus on the academic needs of minority and impoverished students, which has put it a step ahead in its efforts to satisfy NCLB mandates.
As an urban school, the effects of poverty are reflected in student academic achievement, but as Simpson points out, 54 percent of the city's schools are ranked as either "fully accredited" or "provisionally accredited/meets state standards" -- a significant improvement from just 4 percent receiving these rankings only a few years ago.
