Community Development Commission of the City of Santee
The Santee Redevelopment Agency (“Agency”), predecessor to the Community Development Commission of the City of Santee, was established on July 20, 1982 pursuant to California Redevelopment Law and City of Santee Ordinance No. 58. Effective November 12, 1993 the Agency converted to a community development commission structure and was then known as the Community Development Commission of the City of Santee (“CDC”), encompassing both a redevelopment agency and a housing authority in order to utilize housing authority powers, particularly relating to the development of affordable housing.
As the result of the enactment of Assembly Bill No. 26 (“AB 1X 26”) in June 2011 and subsequent California State Supreme Court decision on December 19, 2011, all redevelopment agencies in the State were dissolved, including the former CDC, effective February 1, 2012. Successor agencies were designated as successor entities to the former redevelopment agencies to expeditiously wind down the affairs of the former redevelopment agencies.
CDC Successor Agency of the City of Santee
Pursuant to the Redevelopment Dissolution Act, on January 11, 2012 the City Council elected to serve as the successor agency to the former CDC (“Successor Agency”) and on January 25, 2012 the City Council designated the San Diego County Housing Authority to assume the housing assets and functions of the former CDC.
The Successor Agency serves in a fiduciary role to ensure the timely and orderly wind down of the former CDC, including the payment of outstanding debts. The Successor Agency’s efforts are subject to the review and approval of its Oversight Board, the State Department of Finance (“DOF”), the State Controller’s Office and the County Auditor-Controller. On April 26, 2013 the Successor Agency received its Finding of Completion from the DOF confirming that certain dissolution requirements had been met and certain payments made. On February 21, 2014 the Successor Agency’s Long-Range Property Management Plan (“LRPMP”) was approved by the DOF. The LRPMP can be found using the following link.
Initially the Successor Agency had its own Oversight Board, but effective July 1, 2018 all local Oversight Boards in San Diego County were consolidated into a single San Diego Countywide Redevelopment Successor Agency Oversight Board.
Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule
The Oversight Board, DOF and County Auditor-Controller must annually approve the Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule (“ROPS”) which includes a listing of all DOF-approved enforceable obligations to be paid from the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund and certain other funding sources. The ROPS and DOF letters approving each of the five most recent ROPS can be found using the following links.
