What is a redevelopment plan?
A redevelopment plan for a specific project area is the document that specifies the process and basic financial framework the Redevelopment Agency will use to implement the goals and objectives of Fontana's General Plan and thereby reduce the State-defined blighting conditions. The redevelopment plan identifies the project area's deficiencies and provides the Agency with tools to take certain actions such as to buy and sell land and improve public facilities and infrastructure. In Fontana, there is a redevelopment plan for each of the five project areas: Southwest Industrial Park (SWIP), Jurupa Hills, Downtown, North Fontana, and Sierra Corridor Commercial.
