Local Economic Development in Post-Redevelopment California

Conferences & Speaking Engagements

Law Seminars International | TeleBriefing

MARCH 14, 2012

The use of redevelopment tax increment financing in California effectively ended in 2011, but various alternatives remain for financing urban development projects in the state. Local agencies have tools that can be used to leverage urban development and foster public and private investment to finance much needed economic development, infrastructure, affordable housing and public amenities.

This one-hour TeleBriefing addressed the opportunities available to finance needed urban development projects from the perspectives of practitioners who advise developers, investors and public agencies. Panelists discussed existing statutory tools, public-private partnerships, non-monetary forms of project assistance and legislative efforts to assist urban development. Attendees gained an understanding of the opportunities for urban development in California after the demise of Redevelopment.
