Overview

The Redevelopment Agency of the City of San Diego was created by the City Council in 1958 to alleviate conditions of urban blight in designated areas of the City. The Agency's scope and authority stem from the State of California's Health and Safety Code (Section 33000 et seq.), also known as the California Community Redevelopment Law. The law outlines procedures to determine what development, reconstruction, and rehabilitation are needed and desirable. It also defines the financial tools, legal authority, and citizen participation necessary to successfully implement adopted redevelopment plans. The law is designed to promote an improved and safer neighborhood environment and a restoration of community pride.

Although the Redevelopment Agency is a separate legal entity, the City Council serves as its Board of Directors. The City Council President chairs the Board, the Mayor is the Executive Director, and the City Attorney serves as General Counsel. The City's Redevelopment Department serves as staff to the Agency per an operating agreement by and between the City and Agency.

Redevelopment Department staff coordinates Agency-wide budget and reporting activities, prepares the Redevelopment Agency Board Docket, maintains the Agency's official records, and administers seven Project Area Committees that advise the Agency on the adoption and implementation of redevelopment plans, programs, and projects.

Redevelopment Department staff also coordinates with the City of San Diego's two non-profit public corporations, Centre City Development Corporation (CCDC) and Southeastern Economic Development Corporation (SEDC), concerning items of Agency-wide bearing or items requiring Agency Board action. However, day-to-day administration of these corporations and their assigned Project Areas and associated projects and programs is handled by their respective corporate staff, management team, and board per separate operating agreements by and between the Agency and the corporations.

The Redevelopment Agency's 14 redevelopment Project Areas and one Study Area encompass more than 11,700 acres.

Cooperation Agreement

The City of San Diego and the Redevelopment Agency of the City of San Diego entered into a Cooperation Agreement for Payment of Costs Associated with Certain Redevelopment Agency Funded Projects (R-306632/ R-04618) on February 28, 2011. The Cooperation Agreement commits the City to aiding and cooperating with the Agency to expeditiously implement redevelopment projects in accordance with the respective redevelopment plans and implementation plans for the City's 14 Project Areas, and to ensure that the objectives of those plans are fulfilled within the time effectiveness of the Project Areas. To ensure the timely implementation and completion of the projects, the Agency has pledged to provide to the City available net tax increment, other revenue received by the Agency, and available fund balances in the current and forthcoming fiscal years in amounts equal to the cost to the City to carry out the projects.
