Redevelopment: Where are we, and where are we going? This talk will review what is happening with the dissolution of redevelopment agencies, how properties and contractual obligations are being handled, what the future may hold for contaminated properties previously owned by redevelopment agencies, and how certain pending legislative bills may help to facilitate economic development and affordable housing in the post-redevelopment era.
