Hesperia Community Redevelopment Agency (Dissolved February 1, 2012)

Overview


The Agency was dissolved effective February 1, 2012 with the passage of AB1x26. The Agency is being wound down by its Successor Agency (City of Hesperia) which is governed by a seven member Oversight Board. Additional information pertaining to the former Agency’s activities, programs or reports can be found below.

Established in 1993, the Hesperia Community Redevelopment Agency was charged with eliminating and / or reversing blighting conditions within its two project areas that encompass some 24,878 acres within the City of Hesperia. To effect positive redevelopment, the Agency:
  • Orchestrates orderly and progressive business development initiatives
  • Encourages the production of affordable housing
  • Invests in critical public improvements

The Agency's operations are governed by California Community Redevelopment Law (CCRL), yet directed locally by the Agency Board of Directors which also serves as the City Council.

The Economic Development Department staffs and administers the Agency's programs and activities. Besides its two redevelopment project areas, the Agency is a member of the Victor Valley Economic Development Authority (VVEDA), a Joint Powers Authority (JPA), charged with the orderly redevelopment of the former George Air Force Base. VVEDA administers a small redevelopment project area within the City.

Tax Increment


Agency programs and initiatives were funded by property tax increment. Property tax increment is generated when property values increase within a redevelopment project area. The Agency invested its tax increment revenues in a myriad of programs and projects based upon the guidance of the Agency Board of Directors.

These programs and projects include business attraction / retention, affordable housing, infrastructure development, community facilities, and other endeavors that enhance the quality-of-life for City residents. Significant Agency tax increment revenues are invested in the City's Capital Improvement Program (CIP) annually. Examples include:
  • Street paving
  • Drainage improvements
  • Police and fire facilities
  • Interchanges
