Comprehensive Coverage of the End of Redevelopment in California

With no last minute pardons granted, yesterday marked the official dissolution date for California's 400-plus redevelopment agencies. Curbed LA has gathered the essential readings to guide you through the 'developments' at the state and local levels.

"Today's the day: all of the local redevelopment agencies in California are officially dissolved. That doesn't mean they're gone, of course--rather, today begins the long process of settling all affairs. Most of the RDAs, which once partnered with private developers to build in blighted areas, have become the responsibility of successor agencies; in most cases, that's the local city government, but Los Angeles voted to wash its hands of the Community Redevelopment Agency of LA."

Adrian Glick Kudler has compiled some essential readings for those following the California redevelopment saga. Articles cover the future of LA's redevelopment agency (which, with the city unable to absorb its staff and projects, became a ward of the state), fire sales already going forward in multiple cities, and the latest in legislative news.
