This matter was continued to <br />the next regular meeting (February 20) in order for staff to complete <br />its investigation. <br /> <br />(NOTE: Transcription of this item is on file in the office of the <br />City Clerk.) <br /> <br />Discussion held on the advisability of proceeding to designate a survey <br />area in connection with the Community Redevelopment Agency. Eugene <br />Jacobs, Special Counsel to the Local Agency, spoke at length concerning <br />the difference between a survey area and an eventual boundary area. <br />After close consultation with city staff he had prepared a map indi- <br />cating the area proposed to be considered a survey area. <br /> <br />The area drawn up by Mr. Jacobs comprises about 15 percent of the <br />total land area in the City and indicates that the major redevelopment <br />area would include Huntington Drive between Fifth Avenue and the Race <br />Track, First Avenue between Wheeler Street and Duarte Road. Located <br />therein are the High School, First Avenue Junior High School, County <br />Park. Race Track and Fashion Park. The primary part of the plan is <br />the deteriorating downtown area according to Mr. Jacobs. . He noted <br />that the schools are included because recent State laws allow a <br />'Redevelopment Agency to use funds derived from taxes in the Project <br />Area for school purposes. At a later date Mr. Jacobs will submit a <br />detailed analysis as to what it would mean economically to the <br />Redevelopment Plan with and/or without Fashion Park. <br /> <br />The adoption of this survey area for study does not mean that the <br />eventual project area will have the same boundaries. It could well <br />be smaller or larger after public hearings are held. This is the <br />first step in establishing an area for study; the Resolution has no <br /> <br />2-6-73 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
