What is the business of the Fontana Redevelopment Agency?
Redevelopment is the process that assists the City in the rehabilitation and stimulation of development in a designated area through the elimination of State-defined blighting conditions. The end objective is to achieve desired development, reconstruction, and rehabilitation in residential, commercial, and industrial areas. Since its creation in 1968, the Fontana Redevelopment Agency has primarily focused its activities on completing public improvements and facilities such as area-wide flood control facilities, street landscaping, water (fire flow) systems, streets, and underground utilities. The Redevelopment Agency has no taxing authority. The primary source of agency revenue is a portion of the property taxes, called tax increment, that are collected within each project area.
