The CCRA board is responsible for overseeing downtown redevelopment consistent with the Vancouver City Center Vision plan
VANCOUVER – The city of Vancouver is seeking applicants for one vacancy on its City Center Redevelopment Authority (CCRA) board. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. Sun., Nov. 1.
The CCRA board is responsible for overseeing downtown redevelopment consistent with the Vancouver City Center Vision (VCCV) plan. The board advises the mayor and city council on public-private partnerships, public assistance to private developments, and the business aspects of redevelopment projects and agreements in downtown Vancouver.
Consistent with the CCRA’s charter, board members must be civic or business leaders with experience relevant to the CRRA’s purpose in fields such as finance, real estate development, law or construction management. Applicants are not required to live within the city limits. However, they must be available for an interview with City Councilmembers Thursday, Dec. 10.
Board members serve four-year terms. Regular CCRA meetings are on the third Thursday of each month beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers. Special meetings of the Board are advertised and held as needed – historically four to six times per year. Board members prepare for meetings by reviewing financial projections, legal documents and other technical information related to the projects presented at workshops and public meetings.
The open position is currently held by an individual whose term is expiring and this individual may or may not reapply. Per Vancouver City Council policy, all incumbents who wish to reapply for their positions will be re-interviewed along with any other qualifying applicants.
