It is hereby declared to be the policy of Council to promote and encourage the sound development, including renewal and redevelopment where necessary, of the entire City, in accordance with the General Plan for the City. Council realizes that the City Government will be unable to carry out coordinated and effective programs for renewing the City without the cooperation and support of the public as a whole. Therefore, Council stands ready to cooperate with private enterprise, civic groups, neighborhood agencies and governmental agencies in developing and carrying out urban renewal programs and projects to promote the sound development of new areas, to prevent the spread of blight and to eliminate blighted, deteriorated and deteriorating areas in the City.
