FIVE-YEAR IMPLEMENTATION PLAN - EL MONTE REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

In November of 2009, RSG completed and presented the El Monte Redevelopment Agency's 2009/10 Five-Year Implementation and Housing Compliance Plan for the Agency's four active redevelopment project areas. The draft Plan was reviewed at a work session of the Agency on December 1, 2009. The City of El Monte contains nine redevelopment project areas:  East Valley Mall, El Monte Plaza, Plaza El Monte, Ramona Valley, El Monte Center (inclusive of El Monte Center Amendment 1), Santa Anita-Tyler, Downtown El Monte (inclusive of Downtown El Monte Amendment 1), Northwest El Monte, and Valley-Durfee.  Five of the redevelopment project areas described above are substantially completed and have no land available for housing production.  For that reason, descriptions and analysis of the Agency's redevelopment and housing activities in the 2009 Five-Year Plan and Housing Component were prepared for:  El Monte Center (inclusive of El Monte Center Amendment 1), Downtown El Monte (inclusive of Downtown El Monte Amendment 1), Northwest El Monte, and Valley-Durfee.  Each "active" Project Area was addressed in its own section of the Plan and contained all the information required by Section 33490 of the CRL.  The plan was approved on December 15, 2009.
