Proposed Amendments to the Central District Redevelopment Project Area Plan
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Central Business District/Business Mix/Neighborhood Center Mixed Use/Community Commercial/Urban Residential/Urban Open Space/Institutional/Estuary Policy Plan Land Use.
Document Description
The proposed project consists of several amendments to the Redevelopment Plan. One proposed amendment would extend the duration ("effectiveness") of the Redevelopment Plan from 2012 to 2022 and extend the time period that the Redevelopment Agency can receive tax increment funds from 2022 to 2032, as allowed by Senate Bill 211. Under the California Community Redevelopment Law ("CRL"), such an extension requires findings, among other things, that significant blight remains in the Project Area and that blight cannot be eliminated without extending the effectiveness of the Redevelopment Plan and the receipt of property taxes. Secondly, the Project would also include an amendment to increase the cap on the receipt of tax increment revenue to account for the proposed time extension, as the Redevelopment Agency is anticipated to exceed its existing cap if the time extension is adopted. A third amendment would renew the authority for use of eminent domain in the project area.
