Effective February 1, 2012, all redevelopment agencies statewide were officially dissolved pursuant to legislation and the California Supreme Court’s decision in California Redevelopment Association, et al. v. Ana Matosantos, et al. (53 Cal.4th 231 (2011)). RDA Successor Agencies are now responsible for following the wind down procedures outlined in ABX1 26 and subsequent legislation AB1484 and SB107.
The County Auditor-Controller (ATC) is responsible for and continues to perform the following:
Pursuant to Health and Safety Code (HSC) section 34177(m)(1)(A), successor agencies shall submit a copy of the ROPS electronically and in the manner provided for by DOF. Successor agencies should refer to DOF correspondence and website http://www.dof.ca.gov/Programs/Redevelopment/ for updated annual ROPS instructions and format/template.
ROPS should be submitted to the following addresses:
Hardcopy documents may be mailed to:
ATTN: Property Tax Section – Property Tax Manager
268 W. Hospitality Lane, 4th Floor
San Bernardino, CA 92415-0018
Pursuant to HSC Section 34177(o)(1)(E), successor agencies may submit an amended ROPS, once per ROPS period, no later than October 1. The successor agency may only amend the amount requested for payment on an approved enforceable obligation, the oversight board needs to make a finding that a revision is necessary for the payment of the approved enforceable obligation during the second half of the ROPS (January 1 to June 30) and the oversight board shall approve the revised ROPS.
The County Auditor-Controller prepares estimates of property tax revenue and pass-through amounts to be allocated in the upcoming six-month period no later than October 1 and April 1 of each year. The estimate report is emailed to the designated contacts for taxing entities and is posted on our website as well. Successor agencies are encouraged to utilize the estimate reports as a supplement to their own cash flow projections to determine if they will have sufficient funds to pay required debt service. If a Successor agency determines they will not have suffiicent funds and wish to invoke pass-through subordination clauses, a notice of insufficient funds should be submitted to the County Auditor-Controller no later than December 1 and May 1.
