StimULI Breakfast: Urban Economic Development – Effectively Using What’s Left in the Toolbox

Since the dissolution of Redevelopment Agencies in 2012, the ability to finance facilitate urban infill projects has been in question.  However, examples are starting to emerge of urban redevelopment taking place even without the traditional tools, such as tax increment. This session focused on one recent success, the “azalea” Regional Shopping Center located in the City of South Gate.  This panel will offer a case study and hear the perspective of the developer and its legal counsel, as well as the City Manager and his financial consultant.  This presentation will be a “deep dive” into this successful post-RDA project.
