California Cities Unable to Recoup Millions in Loans to Redevelopment Agencies

There are 47 comments on the story from May 26, 2012, titled California Cities Unable to Recoup Millions in Loans to Redevelopment Agencies. In it, reports that:

In the last few weeks, cities have received notices from the state that they will not be able to collect hundreds of millions of dollars they loaned to their redevelopment agencies.

El Monte likely won't get paid back the $76 million it lent to its redevelopment agency over the last three decades. The city's annual general fund budget is about $50million. La Mirada is owed $29 million from its redevelopment agency, which is nearly as much as that city's entire $35 million yearly general fund budget. Duarte has $9.5million in outstanding loans from the city to its redevelopment agency, which adds up to about 80 percent of that city's annual general fund.

Change in law endangers Industry program that built thousands of affordable housing units

INDUSTRY - The demise of redevelopment agencies may turn off the spigot on an Industry-funded program that has paid for 10,000 affordable housing units during the last 20 years.


The City of Industry or "City of Roski" should annex Hacienda Heights and Rowland Heights and let the people run the City.

Easy come, easy go.

Read the article a little slow next time, you missed the good parts.

Since the city of Industry was giving away housing money fr so many years why should they miss wjhat they did use or have now?

No good parts if it involves the corupt state of Industry
They were required to set asside 20% of their RDA for low income housing.
Which if they spen within their own City would soon open the door to Control of the City to non insiders.
They used the special RDA exemption to brige other local cities to support them on other issues.
Like the Truck lanes down the 60 freeeway to Industry Warehouses and the questionable (screw your neighbors)stadium self dealing booondoogle.

But sure as Green apples are made, these slow minded and dull witted idiots will clog up the California court system with the losers anyway.

It's time to fire the problem makers in each city, that will get them back to working for the people instead of them selves.

What do you say Glendora, California DUDS that live off it's tax paying residents.
