Catching Up with Winding Down: The Status of California Redevelopment Successor Agencies
Authors: Robert C. Herr, Noa L. Clark, Paul C. Levin
Successor agencies to California’s dissolved Redevelopment Agencies (“RDAs”) continue to wind down the operations of the former RDAs under the supervision of oversight boards pursuant to Assembly Bill X1 26 (“AB 26”) as modified by Assembly Bill 1484 (“AB 1484”). Successor agencies are currently addressing several issues for the first time relating to enforceability of contracts, the distribution of agency funds, and the future of properties formerly owned by RDAs. This advisory explains the current state of successor agencies and how successor agencies are dealing with issues raised by the wind-down process.

California's Post Redevelopment Agency Landscape

Authors: Noa L. Clark, Robert C. Herr, Paul C. Levin
On December 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court upheld legislation that fundamentally changes redevelopment law in California. The court upheld Assembly Bill X1 26 (AB 26), eliminating all redevelopment agencies in California, while overturning Assembly Bill X1 27 (AB 27), which would have allowed redevelopment agencies to continue operations if the agencies made certain payments to the state. As a result, all of California's approximately 400 redevelopment agencies dissolved as of February 1, 2012, without the option to make payments to the state to continue operations.

State Supreme Court Upholds Dissolution of California Redevelopment Agencies
Authors: Robert C. Herr, Noa L. Clark, Paul C. Levin
On December 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court issued a ruling upholding sweeping changes to California redevelopment law. The court upheld Assembly Bill (AB) X1 26, which dissolves all redevelopment agencies in California, while invalidating ABX1 27, which would have allowed redevelopment agencies to continue by making required payments to the state’s education fund. This ruling means that, effective immediately, all redevelopment agencies in California must begin the dissolution and winding-up process as required by ABX1 26.
