Does Fontana have a Redevelopment Agency? When was it formed?
The City of Fontana established the Redevelopment Agency in 1968 through Ordinance No. 344. The Redevelopment Agency is a legal entity separate from the City of Fontana. The Redevelopment Agency is governed by the City Council. The general purpose of the agency is to improve the physical, economic, social, and cultural conditions within designated redevelopment project areas. There are currently five redevelopment project areas: Southwest Industrial Park (SWIP), Jurupa Hills, Downtown, North Fontana, and Sierra Corridor Commercial.

A separate redevelopment plan governs the activities of each project area. Agency staff, working closely with other city staff, carry out the day-to-day operations of implementing the various redevelopment plans.
