Text of measure

Ballot question:

Shall the Charter be amended to require voter approval and voter notification to create or substantially change Urban Renewal Plans?[2]

Summary of question:

This measure amends the City Charter to require voter approval for the creation of Urban Renewal Districts or for proposed substantial changes to Urban Renewal Plans in Albany. These changes will make a substantial change to an existing Plan which would authorize new Urban Renewal indebtedness. Before such a vote, the City would be required to mail a voter notification document to all electors in the City and to post notification on the City website.

The measure would also provide that the retirement of previously authorized urban renewal indebtedness will result in the termination of the Urban Renewal Agency, with any continuing obligations or rights of the terminated agency being assumed by the City. The termination of a City Urban Renewal Agency will occur whether or not the Plan has projects or funds available for Agency Projects.[1][2]
