MULTIPLE REDEVELOPMENT PLAN AMENDMENTS – REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY OF THE CITY OF SAN BERNARDINO

From 2001 through 2004, RSG assisted the agency in successfully processing seven (7) eminent domain amendments.  Two of these amendments completed in 2004, for the Uptown Project Area and the Central City North Project Area, required the documentation of blight remaining and formation of project area committees.  Additionally, RSG staff provided consulting services for amendments and the merger of seven (7) of the agency's redevelopment project areas ("Merger A"). The amendments include: increasing the tax increment and bonded indebtedness limits; adding capital projects; extending the redevelopment plan duration for two project areas by 10 years; and adopting a single merged, amended and restated redevelopment plan for the merged project area. The public hearing for Merger A was conducted in December 2010.


RSG is currently working on a second set of amendments and the merger of all remaining redevelopment project areas in within the City, including extending and/or re-establishing the agency's eminent domain authority in all project areas, extending the plan duration and adding territory ("Merger B").  The formation of a project area committee will be part of the plan amendment process.   This project is in process and not complete.  This project is due to be completed in October 2012.
