This statute, as modified by the California Supreme Court’s decision in California Redevelopment Association v. Matasantos, has generated considerable uncertainty and confusion. In response, the League’s City Attorneys’ Department formed a working group of experienced city attorneys and redevelopment attorneys to help advise the League on the numerous legal issues that have arisen in the wake of redevelopment agencies being dissolved.
This working group’s first question and answer guide addresses questions related to recognized obligation payment schedules (ROPS), cash flow, bond proceeds, and pass-through payments. This guide can be found at www.cacities.org/redevelopment. Future guides will cover: successor agency and oversight boards, property transfers, labor and employment, housing, and environmental issues. The League expects these guides will be available over the next several weeks.
