Urban Infill and Redevelopment Areas Have Uncertain Impact But Perceived as Useful, Report No. 04-14, February 2004
Full report in PDF format

  • The 1999 Growth Policy Act authorized local governments to designate urban infill and redevelopment areas to help stimulate investment and development in distressed urban centers.  Thirteen local governments have designated such areas, and the Legislature appropriated $2.5 million for the program in Fiscal Year 2000-01.
  • While limited data is currently available on the impact of urban infill and redevelopment area designations on local conditions, representatives of local governments that received urban infill and redevelopment assistance grants believed they were useful.
  • If the Legislature creates similar programs in the future, it should consider requiring local governments to compile and report information on program activities and outcomes.
