CA Supreme Court Kills Culver City Redevelopment Agencies: Former Culver City Councilman Scott Malsin Reacts

The California State Supreme Court has upheld the legality of ABx1-26 -- California Governor Jerry Brown's bill to abolish redevelopment agencies statewide. The move puts at risk many Culver City projects that are funded all or in part by the city's redevelopment agency.

Former Culver City Councilman Soctt Malsin attributed much of the city's revitalization over last decade to the redevelopment agency. "Culver City has put years of community time, staff effort and public investment to extend the 'Culver City miracle' throughout the city."

And he expressed concern about the projects throughout the city that are impacted by the redevelopment agency. "I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that the community will be devastated if that miracle is stopped dead in its tracks by the state's action and the court decision - all the more so if critical project sites like Parcel B, Washington/National and Washington/Centinela were sold off to the highest bidder in a callous process that didn't recognize the aspirations of the community."
