The 2009 Updated Redevelopment Plan establishes the goals and objectives of the Redevelopment Agency, as well as defines the geographic limits of the Project Area. The Redevelopment Plan also outlines the legal tools and mechanisms that any Redevelopment Agency can use to achieve its goals and objectives.
An Implementation Plan is how the Agency plans to achieve the goals of the 2009 Updated Redevelopment Plan through city-specific programs. This Plan covers the five-year planning period for fiscal years 2009-10 through 2013-14 for the Merged Dynamite and Project Area No. 2 Project Area (inclusive of the 2009 Added Area). The Plan also contains an update to the Agency's Ten-Year Housing Compliance Plan for meeting the Agency's affordable housing requirements for the current 10-year compliance period (FY 2004-05 to 2013-14), including obligations for producing, replacing and expending funds for affordable housing.
