On December 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court issued its ruling in California Redevelopment Association et al. v. Ana Matosantos et al. The Court upheld AB1x26, invalidated AB1X27, and extended all statutory deadlines under AB1X26. As of February 1, 2012, redevelopment agencies throughout the State ceased to exist.

On January 23, 2012, the Redwood City Council adopted a resolution confirming that the City of Redwood City would serve as the Successor Agency to the dissolved Redevelopment Agency of Redwood City effective February 1, 2012. During the January 23, 2012 Joint City / Redevelopment Agency Board meeting, the Redevelopment Agency Board also adopted a resolution amending its original Enforceable Obligation Payment Schedule pursuant to AB 1X 26.

In its capacity as the Successor Agency, the City will:

  • prepare a draft Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule (“ROPS”) for each six month period of each fiscal year;
  • wind up all affairs of the dissolved Redevelopment Agency; and
  • prepare administrative budgets and pay administrative costs.

On July 1, 2018, a Countywide Oversight Board was established in accordance with Health and Safety Code 34179(j). The City's Oversight Board was dissolved, and the San Mateo County Controller's Office is staff to the new Countywide Oversight Board. The Board is responsible for providing direction and oversight to the Successor Agencies as they wind-down the affairs of the their former redevelopment agencies. All action items, including the ROPS, are subject to the Countywide Oversight Board review and approval going forward.
