Redevelopment Future on Loma Linda City Council Agenda

Councilmembers come back from a winter break to deal with the results of the California Supreme Court decision, as well as prepare for June's general election.

The Loma Linda City Council will not be able to ease back into things as they return from a winter break tonight.

About a month after approving a shopping center which features a drive-through restaurant expected to house a McDonald's, the City Council will have to react to the recent California Supreme Court decision upholding the elimination of redevelopment agencies across the state.

There are four options available to the city in response to the dissolution of the agency. The first includes creating a housing authority and designating it as the agency that would control properties that originally fell under the jurisdiction of the redevelopment agency.

The others would include the city taking control of the properties and any other assets, or to just not serve as a successor agency.

After making its decision, the City Council will then turn its attention to June's general election, in which there will be three seats up for grabs -- the spots currently held by Mayor Rhodes Rigsby, Mayor pro tem Ovidiu Popescu and Stan Brauer.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. inside the council chambers.
