I saw a couple of California redevelopment-related stories over the past week that seemed worthy of at least a brief comment.
First, a court decision involving a rather bold argument by a public agency.
The City of Loma Linda, like so many California cities, used to have a redevelopment agency. That redevelopment agency acquired property and embarked on various efforts to, well, redevelop things.
