‘The End’ of Redevelopment Agencies December 30, 2011

The best news of a rather dreary year. Redevelopment has done a few good things, like gaslamps, but they could as easily be done through Business Improvement Districts or the city treasuries, which are more directly accountable to the electorate. Also, a defeat on one front for the ‘patrimonialism’ as I have mentioned in some of my other posts.

A prosperous New Year to all my readers, in the spiritual as well as the economic sense.

Who would have thought it would be Jerry Brown and most Dems over the dead bodies of Republicans?  I guess my question is how the Dems will make this up to the cities and other redevelopment supporters.
