TURNING OPPORTUNITY INTO RESULTS
CONCEPTUAL VISION FOR THE 200 BLOCK OF EAST MAIN STREET
The first phase of the Redevelopment Authority’s work for Watertown’s new towne square is now complete. On January 9, 2019, the RDA completed the purchase of the Watertown Daily Times building, the last of the six properties in the 100 block of West Main Street that have been targeted by the City for redevelopment.
Follow us on Facebook for updates on all RDA activities.
The Redevelopment Authority is also excited to be partnering with the Watertown Area Chamber of Commerce collaboration group – a team of about two dozen business and community leaders working together to share all of the great projects shaping Watertown’s future. We invite you to join us in realizing our collective vision for a vibrant transformation that will improve life in Watertown for families, businesses and visitors!
We think you’ll agree that #OpportunityRunsThroughIt!
The Redevelopment Authority (RDA) was established in December 2016 for the purpose of carrying out blight elimination, slum clearance, and urban renewal projects in the City of Watertown. It is separate from the long-standing Community Development Authority (CDA) which exclusively handles public housing in the city.
The purpose of the RDA is to encourage reinvestment in under-utilized areas of the city through the rehabilitation or removal of blighted properties resulting in new infill housing and commercial developments, job creation, an expanded tax base, and an improved quality of life for the citizens of Watertown.
