Oversight Board

cityhallOversight Board

Effective February 1, 2012, all redevelopment agencies (RDA) in California were dissolved and replaced with successor agencies responsible for winding down the affairs of the former agencies. Among each successor agency's responsibilities is the disposition of its former RDA's assets, and ensuring that all enforceable obligations of the former RDA are addressed.

On January 3, 2012, the Yorba Linda City Council elected to become the Successor Agency of its former redevelopment agency. The City, as Successor Agency, became operative on February 1, 2012. On that date, all assets, properties, contracts, and leases of the former redevelopment agency were transferred to the Successor Agency.

Additionally, AB x1 26 requires the establishment of an Oversight Board to supervise the dissolution of each redevelopment agency, including the review and approval of all actions taken by the Successor Agency to implement the dissolution process. Oversight Boards have fiduciary responsibilities to the holders of enforceable obligations and to the taxing entities that benefit from
distributions of property tax.
