Successor Agency


Successor Agency

The Successor Agency is a separate legal entity from the City, and succeeds the former Redevelopment Agency.  The City Council serves as the Successor Agency Board, for which the Mayor serves as the Chair and Mayor Pro-Tem as the Vice Chair.  Board meetings are held on the same date and time as City Council meetings.

Recognized Obligation Payment Schedules (ROPS)

The Successor Agency is required to prepare a Recognized Obligation Schedule (ROPS) every 6 months and submit to the Oversight Board for approval prior to forwarding to the State Department of Finance for its review and approval.


Finding of Completion

Pursuant to Health and Safety Code (HSC) Section 34179.7, the Department of Finance will issue a finding of completion once the Successor Agency has made full and complete payments to the State as determined through the Due Diligence Review and True-Up process.

The City of Yorba Linda has complied with the legal requirements for transferring former redevelopment funds to the State and received its Finding of Completion on May 9, 2013. (link to attachment)
