The Redevelopment Authority of the City of York (RDA) is tasked with eliminating blighted properties in the city of York. Their purpose is to demolish or renovate properties in order to restore them so that (a) they comply with building codes and are no longer a blighting influence in their neighborhoods, (b) they again become economic assets which contribute to the City’s tax base and (c) that they advance the City’s plan for the appropriate development and use of the neighborhood involved.

The staff of the City of York’s Department Economic and Community Development oversee and administers daily RDA activities. The role of the RDA is to responsibly maintain and market its residential, commercial and mixed-use development properties in the City of York. They aim for responsible redevelopments to not only increase the City tax base, but to support community and economic development in all city neighborhoods. The RDA is audited annually as part of the City of York’s annual audit and the financial reports and board meeting minutes are part of public record.
