LA Redevelopment Roundtable Series

How to Navigate the Shark-Infested Waters of Redevelopment in California

Sheppard Mullin Los Angeles Office
September 7, 2011

Please join Sheppard Mullin and our esteemed panel to discuss the implications of recent legislation that eliminates redevelopment agencies ... unless they agree to make their share of a $1.7 billion voluntary contribution of revenues to other local government needs.  We'll also discuss pending litigation to overturn that legislation, along with the bond market's concerns, the rise of alternative financing mechanisms such as infrastructure finance districts, and what all of this means to redevelopment projects throughout the state.
