Of the Dissolved (former) Redevelopment Agency for the City of Goleta

On December 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court issued an opinion in California Redevelopment Association v. Matosantos, upholding Assembly Bill 1X 26 and invalidating Assembly Bill 1X 27 (the legislation that would have permitted redevelopment agencies to continue operation if their sponsoring jurisdiction agreed to make certain payments for the benefit of schools and special districts). As part of the California Supreme Court’s ruling, all effective dates or deadlines occurring prior to May 1, 2012 are to take effect four months later.  As a result, all California redevelopment agencies were dissolved, effective February 1, 2012.

On January 17, 2012 the City of Goleta took formal action to assume the role of Successor Agency both for housing and non-housing functions needed to wind down the affairs of the former Redevelopment Agency for the City of Goleta (Goleta RDA).

On June 27, 2012, as part of the FY 2012-13 state budget package, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed AB 1484. The primary purpose of AB 1484 is to make technical and substantive amendments to the Dissolution Act based on experience to date at the state and local level in implementing that act. As a budget "trailer bill," AB 1484 took immediate effect upon signature by the Governor. AB 1484 provides for the implementation of some significant new rules and requirements in order to effectuate the dissolution process.

Successor Agency

Except for those powers repealed or limited by AB 26, the authority and obligations of a community’s dissolved redevelopment agency (RDA), along with all of its assets, property, contracts, leases, books and records are transferred to and thereafter vested in the “successor agency.” The successor agency’s activities are subject to review and approval by an oversight board. 

Oversight Board

The Oversight Board is generally intended to supervise the activities of the successor agency and ensure the former RDA’s assets are distributed to the taxing entities expeditiously and in a manner that maximizes value. The Oversight Board has a fiduciary responsibility to holders of Enforceable Obligations of the former RDA and to the taxing entities that would benefit from the distribution of revenues generated by the liquidation of RDA assets. 

AB 26, provides that the Oversight Board is to be composed of seven (7) political appointees from affected local taxing entities and the community, as follows for Goleta's Successor Agency:

  1. One member appointed by the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors ("BOS"). 
  2. One member appointed by the Mayor of Goleta. 
  3. One member appointed by the largest special district (Santa Barbara County Fire District), by property tax share, with territory in the territorial jurisdiction of the Agency. 
  4. One member appointed by the Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Education. 
  5. One member appointed by the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges. 
  6. One member of the public appointed by the BOS. 
  7. One member representing the employees of the Agency appointed by the Mayor of Goleta.
