Contra Costa County Countywide Oversight Board

Overview


The California state legislature enacted Assembly Bill x1 26 to dissolve redevelopment agencies formed under the Community Redevelopment Law (Health and Safety Code Section 33000 et seq.); and on February 1, 2012, the redevelopment agencies in 17 jurisdictions in Contra Costa County were dissolved. Each of these jurisdictions declared that they would act as successor agency for their dissolved Redevelopment Agencies. Oversight Boards for each of these 17 Successor Agencies were established in accordance with the Dissolution Act.

Effective July 1, 2018, 17 Oversight Boards expired and only one oversight board in Contra Costa County was established. The purpose of this County Oversight Board is to oversee all redevelopment successor agencies in the County. The new oversight board is staffed by the Contra Costa County Department of Conservation (DCD). The Countywide oversight board is appointed as follows: 
 
(1) One member may be appointed by the county board of supervisors.
(2) One member may be appointed by the city selection committee established pursuant to Section 50270 of the Government Code.
(3) One member may be appointed by the independent special district selection committee established pursuant to Section 56332 of the Government Code, for the types of special districts that are eligible to receive property tax revenues pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 34188. 
(4) One member may be appointed by the county superintendent of education to represent schools if the superintendent is elected. If the county superintendent of education is appointed, then the appointment made pursuant to this paragraph shall be made by the county board of education. 
(5) One member may be appointed by the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges to represent community college districts in the county.
(6) One member of the public may be appointed by the county board of supervisors.
(7) One member may be appointed by the recognized employee organization representing the largest number of successor agency employees in the county.
