Urban Renewal Agency


Mission Statement


The Mission of the Urban Renewal Agency, Rock Springs Main Street is to foster the economic and social vitality of downtown Rock Springs, while accentuating its unique heritage. In addition, our mission is to foster the preservation of the historic character and cultural heritage of Rock Springs.



The Urban Renewal Agency (URA) was established in 2005 by the City of Rock Springs in order to revitalize, redevelop and conserve the slum and blighted areas of the Urban Renewal District. The Urban Renewal District encompasses the downtown central business district and the east entrance to the City of Rock Springs.
The URA is considered a department within the city and headed by a Director who also facilitates the Rock Springs Main Street program with the assistance of additional city staff. The agency depends on countless volunteer hours of service on four standing committees: Promotions, Design, Economic Restructuring and Organization.

Along with volunteers, the URA has partnered with the City of Rock Springs, the Downtown Merchants, Sweetwater Economic Development Association, Chamber of Commerce, Wyoming Business Council, Sweetwater School District Number 1, Community Fine Arts Center, Historical Museum Board, City Recreation Board, City of Rock Springs Parks and Recreation department, Library Board, professional individuals, property owners, and all appropriate stakeholders in the City of Rock Springs community. Every one of these partnerships play a vital role in helping accomplish projects within the URA plan.


The City of Rock Springs Urban Renewal Agency has a responsibility to ensure that the Urban Renewal District is strengthened and that it remains a vital part of our community. Public consensus and involvement remain a key ingredient for the success of this implementation,and Rock Springs has demonstrated an excellent track record in volunteerism and community spirit. The URA will continue to carry out the renewal plan to improve the overall aesthetics and life of the Urban Renewal District area as well as the City of Rock Springs.
