RDA Project Area Map

With the California Supreme Court upholding the State’s legislation AB 1X 26, effective February 1, 2012, all Redevelopment Agencies within the State cease to exist.

All redevelopment activities that had previously existed under the Redevelopment Agency of the City of San Buenaventura (“Agency”) have thus, ceased.

AB 1X 26 provides that the City of San Buenaventura (“City”) will be the “successor agency” to the Agency and responsible for the wind down of the Agency’s affairs. The activities of the City, as successor agency, will be overseen by an oversight board, comprised primarily of representatives of other affected taxing agencies, until such time as the debts of the Agency are paid off, all Agency assets liquidated and all property taxes are redirected to local taxing agencies.

AB 1X 26 also allows the City, as the entity that created the Agency, to elect to retain the housing assets and obligations of the former redevelopment agency. The City approved this election on January 30, 2012 thus all rights, powers, duties, and obligations of the former redevelopment agency affordable housing functions shall be transferred to the City.

If you have further questions, please contact the Community Development Director’s office at (805) 658-4723 or

The following is a required posting listing the Agency’s enforceable obligations.

California Supreme Court rules to uphold Assembly Bill 1X 26, abolishing Redevelopment in California!

On December 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court announced its decision in CRA v. Matosantos, by upholding AB 1X 26 (the assembly bill that eliminates Redevelopment in California) and striking down ABX127 (the bill that would have allowed Redevelopment agencies to continue after making a payment to the state).

On Monday, January 9, 2012, the Ventura City Council will be presented with a Director's Report regarding what this Court decision means for Redevelopment in Ventura and what the next steps will be. City Council meets in Council Chambers on the second floor of Ventura City Hall at 6:00 p.m. You may also follow the meeting online through the City’s website.
