Discuss Redevelopment Agency closeouts and Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The purpose of CIP was outlined as a funding tool for City infrastructure projects, approval of debt policies and implementation tool for City Council. At this time, there are 180 active projects and 25 closeouts returning $1.47 Million to the General Fund. Seventeen projects ($2.03 Million) are slated to be defunded. Capital needs will exceed resources. Measure WW funds are still available. A work session is scheduled for the March 15, 2011 City Council meeting to discuss this situation further.
Mid-Term Review discussed proposed budget of newly elected Governor Brown which includes dissolution of all Redevelopment agencies in the State of California. Existing contracts in progress may be honored but projected projects are uncertain at best. All further plans and discussions await actions of legislature.
