Welcome to the Successor Agency to the former Berkeley Redevelopment Agency 

As of February 1, 2012, all redevelopment agencies were dissolved due to the December 29, 2011 California Supreme Court action in the California Redevelopment Association v. Matosantos case.

The City of Berkeley is the Successor Agency to the former Berkeley Redevelopment Agency. On January 17, 2011, the City of Berkeley elected to also become the Successor Housing Agency to manage housing assets of the Berkeley Redevelopment Agency.     

The former Berkeley Redevelopment Agency (BRA) managed capital projects and financing, as well as the creation of affordable housing in the West Berkeley and Savo Island Redevelopment Areas.  The West Berkeley Redevelopment Area is bound by University Avenue, I-80, and Sixth and Cedar Streets.  The Savo Island Redevelopment Area is bound by Milvia, Adeline, Ward and Stuart Streets.  In the Savo Island Area, the Agency maintained and rehabilitated several affordable housing units

The Berkeley Redevelopment Agency governance was made up of the members of the City Council with the City Manager serving as the Executive Director.  The West Berkeley Project Area Commission was made up of the Council appointees living, working, or owning property in or proximate to the Redevelopment Area, advised the Agency Board on recommendations for realizing the West Berkeley Redevelopment Plan and fulfillment of the West Berkeley Implementation Plans through July 2010.  Savo Island does not have a citizen advisory committee.

Some City buildings and services will be closed to the public on holidays and reduced services days.
