The Randolph Redevelopment Authority (RRA) was established under M.G.L. chapter 121B by a vote of the Town Council in December 2016.
Who We Are
The RRA consists of five appointed members each of whom must be a Randolph resident. Four members are appointed by the Town Manager with confirmation by the Town Council; the remaining member of the authority is appointed by the Commonwealth. The Town provides a list of nominees to DHCD who will pass that list up to the Governor's office for appointment.
What We Do
In an effort to encourage sound growth and to revitalize urban areas that are substandard, decadent or blighted open space, the legislature developed an urban renewal program under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 121B. Municipalities are authorized to develop blighted areas for residential, recreational, educational, hospital, business, commercial, industrial or other purposes. Future development within these designated urban renewal areas must be undertaken in accordance with use limitations specified in approved urban renewal plans.
Chapter 121B places great importance on the achievement of socio-economic development such as the provision of jobs for the unemployed, the addition of tax revenue to overburdened communities and/or the construction of space for the expansion or siting of industry or business. Urban renewal projects help municipalities revitalize deteriorated areas by providing the economic environment needed to attract and support the private investment needed to achieve a balanced mix of housing, business and industry.
