Meeting Date: November 27, 2001
Subject/Title: Annual Report
Submitted by: Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst
Approved by: John Stevenson, Executive Director
By motion, accept the Blight Report and Property Report as required by the Health & Safety Code.
An amendment to the Community Redevelopment Law, as contained in the Health & Safety Code, requires that, in addition to the routine annual audit report, the State Controller’s Report, and the Housing & Community Development Report, three new annual reports be submitted to and accepted by the Redevelopment Agency within six months after the end of each fiscal year. The new reports include the following:
1. Blight Progress Report specifying the Agency’s progress in alleviating blight during the previous fiscal year.
2. Property Report describing properties owned by the Agency and those acquired in the previous fiscal year.
3. Loan Report identifying any loans made by the Agency that are $50,000 or more and which are in default or not in compliance with the terms of the loan.
Attached for the Agency’s review and acceptance are the Blight Progress Report and the Property Report (identified as “Land Holdings”). The Agency has made no loans, consequently, a Loan Report was not prepared for the past fiscal year.
1) Blight Alleviation Report
2) Land Holdings Report
