Section 33333.2

(a)

A redevelopment plan containing the provisions set forth in Section 33670 shall contain all of the following limitations. A redevelopment plan that does not contain the provisions set forth in Section 33670 shall contain the limitations in paragraph (4):

(1)

(A)A time limit on the establishing of loans, advances, and indebtedness to be paid with the proceeds of property taxes received pursuant to Section 33670 to finance in whole or in part the redevelopment project, which may not exceed 20 years from the adoption of the redevelopment plan, except by amendment of the redevelopment plan as authorized by subparagraph (B). This limit, however, shall not prevent agencies from incurring debt to be paid from the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund or establishing more debt in order to fulfill the agency’s housing obligations under subdivision (a) of Section 33333.8. The loans, advances, or indebtedness may be repaid over a period of time longer than this time limit as provided in this section. No loans, advances, or indebtedness to be repaid from the allocation of taxes shall be established or incurred by the agency beyond this time limitation. This limit shall not prevent agencies from refinancing, refunding, or restructuring indebtedness after the time limit if the indebtedness is not increased and the time during which the indebtedness is to be repaid is not extended beyond the time limit to repay indebtedness required by this section.

(B)

The time limitation established by subparagraph (A) may be extended only by amendment of the redevelopment plan after the agency finds, based on substantial evidence, that (i) significant blight remains within the project area; and (ii) this blight cannot be eliminated without the establishment of additional debt. However, this amended time limitation may not exceed 30 years from the effective date of the ordinance adopting the redevelopment plan, except as necessary to comply with subdivision (a) of Section 33333.8.

(2)

A time limit, not to exceed 30 years from the adoption of the redevelopment plan, on the effectiveness of the redevelopment plan. After the time limit on the effectiveness of the redevelopment plan, the agency shall have no authority to act pursuant to the redevelopment plan except to pay previously incurred indebtedness and to enforce existing covenants or contracts, unless the agency has not completed its housing obligations pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 33333.8, in which case the agency shall retain its authority to implement requirements under subdivision (a) of Section 33333.8, including its ability to incur and pay indebtedness for this purpose, and shall use this authority to complete these housing obligations as soon as is reasonably possible.

(3)

A time limit, not to exceed 45 years from the adoption of the redevelopment plan, to repay indebtedness with the proceeds of property taxes received pursuant to Section 33670. After the time limit established pursuant to this paragraph, an agency may not receive property taxes pursuant to Section 33670, except as necessary to comply with subdivision (a) of Section 33333.8.

(4)

A time limit, not to exceed 12 years from the adoption of the redevelopment plan, for commencement of eminent domain proceedings to acquire property within the project area. This time limitation may be extended only by amendment of the redevelopment plan after the agency finds, based on substantial evidence, both of the following:

(A)

That significant blight remains within the project area.

(B)

That this blight cannot be eliminated without the use of eminent domain.

(b)

If a redevelopment plan is amended to add territory, the amendment shall contain the time limits required by this section.

(c)

When an agency is required to make a payment pursuant to Section 33681.9, the legislative body may amend the redevelopment plan to extend the time limits required pursuant to paragraphs (2) and (3) of subdivision (a) by one year by adoption of an ordinance. In adopting this ordinance, neither the legislative body nor the agency is required to comply with Section 33354.6, Article 12 (commencing with Section 33450), or any other provision of this part relating to the amendment of redevelopment plans.

(d)

When an agency is required pursuant to Section 33681.12 to make a payment to the county auditor for deposit in the county’s Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund created pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 97) of Chapter 6 of Part 0.5 of Division 1 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, the legislative body may amend the redevelopment plan to extend the time limits required pursuant to paragraphs (2) and (3) of subdivision (a) by the following:

(1)

One year for each year in which a payment is made, if the time limit for the effectiveness of the redevelopment plan established pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) is 10 years or less from the last day of the fiscal year in which that payment is made.

(2)

One year for each year in which a payment is made, if both of the following apply:

(A)

The time limit for the effectiveness of the redevelopment plan established pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) is more than 10 years but less than 20 years from the last day of the fiscal year in which a payment is made.

(B)

The legislative body determines in the ordinance adopting the amendment that, with respect to the project, all of the following apply:

(i)

The agency is in compliance with the requirements of Section 33334.2 or 33334.6, as applicable.

(ii)

The agency has adopted an implementation plan in accordance with the requirements of Section 33490.

(iii)The agency is in compliance with subdivisions (a) and (b) of Section 33413, to the extent applicable.

(iv)

The agency is not subject to sanctions pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 33334.12 for failure to expend, encumber, or disburse an excess surplus.

(3)

This subdivision shall not apply to any redevelopment plan if the time limits for the effectiveness of the redevelopment plan established pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) is more than 20 years after the last day of the fiscal year in which a payment is made.

(4)

The legislative body by ordinance may adopt the amendments provided for under this subdivision following a public hearing. Notice of the public hearing shall be mailed to the governing body of each of the affected taxing entities at least 30 days prior to the hearing. Notice shall also be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the community at least once, not less than 10 days prior to the date of the public hearing. The ordinance shall contain a finding of the legislative body that funds used to make a payment to the county’s Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund pursuant to Section 33681.12 would otherwise have been used to pay the costs of projects and activities necessary to carry out the goals and objectives of the redevelopment plan. In adopting an ordinance pursuant to this subdivision, neither the legislative body nor the agency is required to comply with Section 33354.6, Article 12 (commencing with Section 33450), or any other provision of this part.

(e)

This section shall apply only to redevelopment projects for which a final redevelopment plan is adopted pursuant to Article 5 (commencing with Section 33360) on or after January 1, 1994, and to amendments that add territory and that are adopted on or after January 1, 1994.
