Should redevelopment in California be brought back from the dead? If so, what if any changes should be made? (Or if you are not a Californian, how is redevelopment working in your area or how should it be changed?) UrbDeZine would like to hear your views. Background: the California Supreme Court recently issued a ruling that was a worst case scenario for redevelopment in California, giving it no options for its survival. See Redevelopment Dead in California. Almost immediately there was talk about legislation to bring it back in some form but, to date, nothing more significant than a short extension has been authored.
