Redevelopment Dissolution

Since January 2011, when Governor Brown first announced plans to eliminate California's redevelopment agencies, Nossaman has provided advice and counsel to both its public agency clients and its developer client base.  Nossaman followed the legislative efforts through the first half of 2011, advised clients about the immediate impacts of the June passage of ABX1 26 and ABX1 27, and tracked and advised clients on the California Redevelopment Association v. Matosantos lawsuit that followed in the California Supreme Court.  When the Court issued its opinion on December 29, 2011, Nossaman was there, being among the first to notify clients about the decision.  We immediately began working with clients on strategies to address issues raised by the law and the Court's decision, and we continue to monitor and apprise our clients on the possibility of new legislation that may further change the redevelopment landscape.  

In addition to our work for our existing client base, Nossaman has been at the forefront on the redevelopment saga.  Nossaman's California Eminent Domain Report blog has tracked the redevelopment dissolution process every step of the way, posting updates at every turn.  Since January 2011, Nossaman attorneys have spoken on redevelopment more than twenty times to audiences across California, and we were among the first to provide our contacts with a substantive analysis of the Matosantos opinion within a day of its issuance, followed shortly thereafter by a 90-minute webinar covering all aspects of the Court's decision, the law, and its implementation, bringing together attorneys and policy makers from four different offices and several disciplines in a single, integrated program.  We continue to monitor developments, including utilizing the resources of our Public Policy group to keep track of any additional legislation that may bear on these issues, even as we work with our clients to comply with the law as it now exists.
