CALIFORNIA'S REDEVELOPMENT AGENCIES ARE DEAD.
The courts have determined that the State has the right to end redevelopment AND that it is improper for the cities and counties to be able to pay to stay in the redevelopment game. You'll remember that two California bills had been passed. One killed redevelopment, and the other allowed cities and counties to pay the State the amount of property taxes that had been diverted away from schools to the redevelopment agencies. The cities and counties were arguing (absurdly) that this was a ransom. In the 'Through The Looking Glass' world of UN Agenda 21 and Redevelopment, the 'logic' was that since the cities and counties had been able to take property taxes meant for schools, roads, police and fire, general funds, etc for so many years and divert them to the redevelopment agencies, if they had to give some back to the State for schools that was a 'ransom.'
WE ARE CELEBRATING TODAY. WE THOUGHT WE'D NEVER SEE IT.
But be careful: INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCING DISTRICTS are another vampire. This is a way to take your tax dollars and pay for Smart Growth--the preferred development model for UN Agenda 21.
LET'S KILL IFD's. PUT THAT VAMPIRE DOWN!
