ONCE LOST RABBIT becomes an Urban Renewal District (URD), a governing body will need to oversee it.
More than likely, that body will be a URD board, said Madison County Board Attorney Mike Espy.
“The statute allows the board of supervisors to do everything ‘in house’ regarding urban renewal planning and remediation. Or, the statute allows the board of supervisors to create an urban renewal board. This is a board [of supervisors] decision, but my recommendation would be to create the new urban renewal board,” Espy said.
