What Would Los Angeles Look Like Without Redevelopment Agencies?

It can be difficult to get a grasp on just what the effect of redevelopment agencies has been on Culver City and the rest of Los Angeles over the years. But a recent post on the CurbedLA blog offered a startling visual representation of the effect of redevelopment agencies on the city's landscape.

As previously reported, this December the California State Supreme Court upheld the legality of ABx1-26 -- California Governor Jerry Brown's bill to abolish redevelopment agencies statewide. The move puts at risk Parcel B in downtown Culver City and many other city projects funded all or in part by the city's redevelopment agency.


The article points out that "the CRA/LA was a big player in the Hollywood renaissance of the last decade, and it orchestrated the still-maligned redevelopment of Bunker Hill that began in 1959 and created a good chunk of the [downtown Los Angeles] skyline."
