After Redevelopment White Paper:

A working group, composed of representatives from all 5 California ULI District Councils, including ULI San Diego-Tijuana, prepared the paper, After Redevelopment: New Tools and Strategies to Promote Economic Development and Build Sustainable Communities, to recommend a comprehensive set of tools to promote economic development and build sustainable and healthy communities in California given the demise of redevelopment.

The white paper provides a brief overview of California’s redevelopment program, which was dissolved as of February 1, 2012, followed by key lessons and important redevelopment tools lost in 2012. The paper concludes with recommendations that were guided by four policy objectives developed by the ULI working group.
