This involves the creation of programs to eliminate physical and economic blight, fund infrastructure improvements, and provide incentives that will stimulate economic revitalization of the Project Area. The actions are all being taken in accordance with the provisions of the California Community Redevelopment Law, Health and Safety Code Section 33000, et seq.
