Welcome to the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City


"As Utah’s capital city evolves, the needs of our residents and businesses also change, sometimes creating a disconnect between what has been and what is. As the city continues to develop practices that support a more sustainable community, the role of the RDA is more critical than ever." — Mayor Ralph Becker


Since 1969, the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City (RDA) has played a pivotal role in revitalizing many areas of downtown. Under the Utah Community Development and Renewal Agencies Act, the RDA has the charge and financial tools to address blight and disinvestment in specific parts of Salt Lake City. Today, areas that have previously suffered from social, environmental, physical, or economic challenges are transforming into areas characterized by a variety of useful amenities, community health, and safety. The RDA will continue to work with the community to implement the City's master plans to create vital housing opportunities, improve infrastructure, and participate in the economic development of Salt Lake City's downtown.

The RDA achieves its goals through direction from the RDA Board of Directors (the same members as the Salt Lake City Council) and is administered by the Chief Administrative Officer (Salt Lake City Mayor). The RDA has a staff of 14 led by the Executive Director. The staff conducts the daily operations of the RDA.
