Judge sides with state in redevelopment battle and, like 29 Palms’ fickled PROJECT PHOENIX, Judge Eugene Balonon agreed with the state’s argument that contracts between the county’s redevelopment agency were not “enforceable obligations” because the state law abolishing redevelopment was effective that day. The judge also denied the county’s request for $5 million to fund improvements tied to a lease between the redevelopment agency and Cardenas Markets as part of the Mission Plaza project in Jurupa Valley.
“If (the law) took effect in June 28, 2011, the contracts are void, because (the redevelopment agency) had no authority on that date to enter into them,” Balonon’s ruling read. Riverside county contemplates a costly and protracted appeal.
