Making Oregon better through urban renewal by fostering communication, guiding best practices, providing information, educating, and more.

We Are Aora

The Association of Oregon Redevelopment Agencies, established in 1987, promotes urban renewal “best practices” among the state’s urban renewal agencies. AORA furthermore provides a forum for discussion with professional colleagues throughout the state on issues pertinent to redevelopment as well as education and information to the legislature and to state agencies on issues related to redevelopment and tax increment financing. AORA evaluates and coordinates urban renewal agency responses to litigation on urban renewal and redevelopment. AORA assists the League of Oregon Cities.
