League of CA Cities: Economic Development Project Funding in 2015: “Sustainability” Replaces Redevelopment

This session addressed how cities can install new financing mechanisms and provide financial assistance for projects in a post-RDA world. With an improving economy and recent legislative changes in California, cities have new tools, mandates and funding sources to promote sustainable economic development and infrastructure projects. This session identified new tools and their ability to use/attract private investment, expedite project approvals and create sustainable public private partnerships and projects that transform communities and install needed local/regional infrastructure. Case studies using new financing structures and funding sources based on recent legislation (e.g., SB 628, AB 313, SB 350, and AB 2) will be discussed.
