The Montrose Urban Renewal Authority (MURA) is a public-private partnership aimed at revitalizing blighted portions of northwestern Montrose through creation of a mixed-use commercial, light industrial, and residential development known as Colorado Outdoors. Additional detail on the MURA, construction photographs, and a live video feed for the project can be found at CityofMontrose.org/MURA. The MURA board awarded a construction contract to Ridgway Valley Enterprises in January of 2018 for construction of the MURA’s Phase I public infrastructure. This project will construct approximately 2.25 miles of public roadway and its associated utilities within the central 40 acres of the development.
Work is currently focused on completion of concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalks as well as installation of dry utilities (power, communications, and natural gas). Paving of this project is scheduled for mid-October.
