In the aftermath of Gov. Jerry Brown’s January 2011 announced decision to eliminate redevelopment agencies, someone at the city apparently decided to counter that by quickly transferring legal title of a long list of redevelopment agency properties to the city of San Diego.
I guess the thinking was, when the legislation later occurred, there would be a lot less redevelopment agency-owned property left because the city had cleverly moved it.
So, on Monday, March 14, 2011, at an off-site evening meeting, the City Council was scheduled to a vote on a property sweep under a late added item (Item S400) on a supplemental agenda.
[“Property Transfer from Redevelopment Agency of San Diego to the City of San Diego. (Barrio Logan, City Heights, College Community, College Grove, Crossroads, Grantville, Linda Vista, Naval Training Center, North Bay, North Park, San Ysidro, Central Imperial, Gateway Center West, Mount Hope, Southcrest and Centre City Community Areas. Districts 2, 3, 4, and 6.)”]
