Redevelopment Woes

New, 1 comment

Late last year, the state Supreme Court upheld the governor's elimination redevelopment agencies, in the name of trying to save the state a serious chunk of change. Mayor Lee has been scrambling to avoid to sour grapes with those invested in projects depending on redevelopment dollars, and is appointing an oversight board for existing projects, as well as moving forward with a plan to create a "housing trust fund." Proponents of the redevelopment agencies say that they created a lot of affordable housing, and Mayor Lee would look to the new housing trust fund to do the same, albeit using a much-hoped-for streamlined process. One can only hope. [SF Examiner/image via Shutterstock]
