The Lowry Redevelopment Authority is a nonprofit, quasi-public organization established by the Cities of Denver and Aurora to redevelop the former Lowry Air Force Base using the Lowry Community Reuse Plan. The LRA serves as master planner and developer of the 1,866 acre site with responsibility for zoning, infrastructure improvements and real estate sales. The LRA's mission is to create a mixed-use, master planned community in metropolitan Denver where citizens can live, learn, work and play for generations to come. Lowry's streets, roundabouts and trails system are designed to reduce car trips and pollution. Many of Lowry's homes are built to maximize energy efficiency, minimize pollution and conserve natural resources. LRA was founded in 1998.
