What is the Redevelopment Agency?

Every city and county in California is authorized by the California Community Redevelopment Law to establish a Redevelopment Agency to pursue the elimination of blight in designated Redevelopment Project Areas.

In Santa Barbara, as in most cities, the City Councilmembers are also the governing board for the Redevelopment Agency; however, the Council and the Agency are two separate, distinct legal entities. The Redevelopment Agency reimburses the City for staff services to carry out the day-to-day operations in pursuit of the Redevelopment Plan for the Redevelopment Project Area.
