Oversight Board to Successor Agency
The Oversight Board of the Successor Agency to the Redevelopment Agency for the City of Lawndale is a required function due to the implementation of Assembly Bill X1 26 which dissolved all redevelopment agencies effective February 1, 2012.
Upon dissolution, Successor Agencies were formed to wind down the former redevelopment agency functions. On January 12, 2012 the City Council elected to become both the Successor Agency and the Housing Successor Agency to handle all low and moderate housing functions of the former agency.
Under Health and Safety Code § 34179, all Successor Agencies are to have an Oversight Board comprised of seven (7) members representing various taxing agencies to include the City, County, Community Colleges, County Department of Education and the largest taxing entity in the former redevelopment area.
