"Successor Agencies" and "Oversight Boards"
The passage of Assembly Bill 1X 26 (Stats. 2011, 1 Ex. Sess. 2011-2012, ch. 5) eliminated redevelopment agencies and created redevelopment "successor agencies" and "oversight boards." This legislation impacted virtually all cities and counties in the state. The Legal Division and the Technical Assistance Division have worked cooperatively to provide advice that you should be aware of. (1) One letter advises that if a city or county becomes the "successor agency" for a redevelopment agency, it is the code reviewing body and thus responsible for determining the form and scope of the conflict-of-interest code for both the "successor agency" and its "oversight board." (2) The second letter analyzes the application of Section 84308 to the newly created boards.
