Successor Agency - Asset Inventory MapAs required by State Legislation, signed by Governor Brown on June 28, 2011, the El Cajon Redevelopment Agency (RDA) was dissolved as of February 1, 2012. While the Agency no longer exists, the Successor Agency (City of El Cajon) has assumed responsibility for administering enforceable obligations of the RDA, completing existing projects, and ultimately to wind down RDA operations over time.

On January 10, 2012, the City Council affirmed its intent to become the successor agency to the El Cajon Redevelopment Agency. The Successor Agency will manage existing enforceable obligations and the disposition of agency assets, subject to approval of an appointed oversight board.

Oversight Board members have a fiduciary responsibility to holders of enforceable obligations and the taxing entities that benefit from distributions of property tax and other revenues. Oversight Boards must direct the Successor Agency to do all of the following: dispose of redevelopment assets and properties; terminate or renegotiate contracts; approve repayment terms for outstanding loans; allow refunding of bonds or other debt; set aside amounts in reserves; merge project areas; continue acceptance of federal grants or other funding; approve compensation agreements regarding taxes on assets; establish/approve each Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule (“ROPS”); approve agreements between the Successor Agency and City or County; and approve pledges or agreements for property tax revenues.
