What is a project area?
A project area is the carefully defined and studied area within which actual redevelopment activities will take place. In Fontana, there are five project areas: Southwest Industrial Park (SWIP), Jurupa Hills, Downtown, North Fontana, and Sierra Corridor Commercial. Proposed project area boundaries and the identification of conditions existing within the area must first go to public hearing. This gives citizens who will be included in the project area a chance to express their views. The Redevelopment Agency may then act on the adoption of the project area and a redevelopment plan. The agency then becomes primarily responsible for overseeing future projects to improve the project area.
