North Mountain Redevelopment Area

North Mountain Redevelopment Area

The North Mountain Redevelopment Area (NMRA) is generally bounded by Interstate-17, 19th Avenue and 15th Avenue on the east; Cholla Street, Sahuaro and Peoria Avenues on the north; 35th Avenue on the west; and Butler, Alice and the Arizona Canal on the south. See the link below for an aerial map of the area.

The North Mountain Redevelopment Area Plan was created as a result of a call for action by the Phoenix City Council and community members to revitalize the area. City staff determined through the North Mountain Redevelopment Study that the area met the statutory requirements to declare this area blighted and establish a redevelopment area pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute 36-1471. Please see this link to view the North Mountain Redevelopment Study Area (PDF). On February 20, 2013 through Resolution 21112 the Phoenix City Council approved the creation of the redevelopment area. Upon establishment of the redevelopment area, the City may assist residents, property owners and business groups to apply for grants and other funding mechanisms to help eliminate blight. This Redevelopment Plan outlines a set of goals and strategies for everything from land uses, improved infrastructure, public transportation, and other items of concern based upon input during the planning process.

On March 19, the Phoenix City Council unanimously approved the North Mountain Redevelopment Area Plan. A copy of adopted Resolution 21207 approving the North Mountain Redevelopment Area Plan is provided in the link below.

This is only a study and the city is NOT proposing to utilize any condemnation powers to acquire private property for any economic redevelopment purpose.
