Adopted in February of 2011, Greensboro's Urban Redevelopment Plan highlights goals and actions for targeted areas of the city. The plan facilitates redevelopment of urban areas in need of special attention. Having an Urban Redevelopment Plan in place is a crucial first step for the city in taking advantage of redevelopment incentives offered by the state of Georgia.
The City of Greensboro adopted a detailed redevelopment plan for the Mary Leila Mill District in July 2013. The plan identifies Mary Leila Mill, the Mill Village, the Greensboro Depot, and the proposed Spring Mill Park as elements of the Mill District and focuses on specific goals and strategies for redevelopment.
