California Redevelopment Needs BOMA Members' Support

BOMA San Francisco Members:

A Redevelopment Bill has been introduced in the California Legislature, and it needs BOMA member support to move forward. 

SB 659 (Padilla; D-Los Angeles) will postpone the February 1, 2012 deadline to begin dissolution of redevelopment agencies. The delay until April 15, 2012 will give time to address implementation issues that have come up as the result of the recent court ruling.

Without passage of this bill, agencies will be dissolved on February 1, leading to lawsuits, layoffs, delays, and confusion.

Over one hundred statewide and local labor, public safety, business groups, and affordable housing advocates have joined the “Coalition for Jobs and Neighborhood Renewal” in support of SB 659. Today we delivered a letter to the legislature urging them to pass SB 659 to allow time to develop a new job creation and neighborhood renewal program.

Call your legislators TODAY and urge them to support SB 659 (Padilla) to postpone the February 1 dissolution date to provide time to fix many of the serious problems that have come up.
