Development is booming again throughout California, and is occurring largely on redevelopment sites. Infill of the urban core, remediation and reuse of contaminated properties, and repositioning open spaces and infrastructure are examples of the land uses fueling the current development cycle. This next generation of redevelopment leverages a new set of planning tools and policies that replace extinct community redevelopment agencies. This symposium will explore mechanisms such as public-private partnerships, infrastructure financing and special use districts, evolving affordable housing policies, and land value capture regulations that are driving development and economic growth.
