After the Death of Redevelopment, Utilizing the Tools at Hand
According to Fulton, the state of California has a number of resources with the potential to aid cities in proceeding with infill development, if packaged and organized better. These include funds from Proposition 84, Proposition 1C, and Department of Transportation planning grants.
Fulton also looks at the tools that cities already have at their disposal. He provides suggestions for utilizing land, sales-tax increments, bonus densities and streamlined processing.
Fulton argues that, "Even if redevelopment is gone for good, California will need public policy to promote infill development and urban revitalization in the years ahead. The state needs to make sure those opportunities are available, but they must be packaged in a coordinated and strategic way. And California's cities must get used to thinking more broadly about how to make redevelopment work."
