Annual Report

Over the past two decades, the Metropolitan Redevelopment Agency (MRA) has collaborated with local community partners and contributed significant economic impact to Albuquerque's urban core. The MRA's Annual Report is the story of revitalizing the downtown corridor, and summarizes the exciting past, present and future efforts of the agency.


The MRA’s mission is to make Albuquerque competitive in the global market by revitalizing downtown and the Central Avenue corridor, which will lead to collaborative public-private partnerships resulting in catalytic change, investing in sustainable infrastructure, and providing opportunities for local residents and businesses to thrive.


The MRA envisions Albuquerque as New Mexico’s urban center and the Southwest’s premier mid-size city, attracting economic investment and building a healthy and vibrant community that reflects diversity, innovation, rich culture, and unique history. It is a vision of a city that ensures economic prosperity for all residents and where visitors dream to return.
