Redevelopment in California is Over, at Least for Now

Hosted by

The State Supreme Court has given Governor Brown his wish: that property taxes to redevelop so-called "blighted" areas be diverted to schools and other "core services" of government. More than 400 redevelopment agencies run by cities around the state have been put out of business, but that does not immediately free up all of the $6 billion they raise and spend every year. It has created a mess.
