On August 18, 2014, the City Council approved the formation of an Urban Renewal Authority after finding that one or more blighted areas exist within the City of Fort Lupton. The Fort Lupton Urban Renewal Authority (FLURA) is the City of Fort Lupton's redevelopment agency. FLURA was formed to promote redevelopment and reinvestment within the City of Fort Lupton and to create a thriving community that is economically diverse.
FLURA meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM. Meetings are held at Fort Lupton City Hall in Council Chambers, unless otherwise stated.
In December 2015, the Fort Lupton City Council appointed a group of citizens, business representatives and other stakeholders within the community to serve on the FLURA Board. The FLURA Board members are:
