195 <br /> <br />ORDINANCE NO. NS-. <br /> <br />AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE <br />CITY OF SANTA ANA AMENDING THE CENTRAL <br />CITY, INTER-CITY, SOUTH MAIN, NORTH HARBOR, <br />SOUTH HARBOR AND BRISTOL CORRIDOR <br />REDEVELOPMENT PLANS OF THE CITY OF SANTA <br />ANA TO EXTEND THE TIME LIMIT ON EACH PLAN'S <br />EFFECTIVENESS AND TO EXTEND THE TIME LIMIT <br />IN EACH PLAN FOR THE RECEIPT OF TAX <br />INCREMENT <br /> <br /> WHEREAS, California Health & Safety Code Section 33333.6(a) & (b), <br />part of the Community Redevelopment Law, was amended by AB 1290 in 1993 to <br />set deadlines in redevelopment plans for (a) the effectiveness of the plan, and (b) <br />the time limit on the receipt of tax increment, for cities who had adopted <br />redevelopment plans without such time limits; and <br /> <br /> WHEREAS, by 1998 Statutes, Chapter 635 (AB 1342), the Legislature, <br />recognized that cities such as the City of Santa Aha, which had prior to 1993 set <br />time limits in their redevelopment plans shorter than the time periods specified in <br />AB 1290 were unfairly treated and that such cities with redevelopment plans that <br />already had limitations shorter than those allowed by AB 1290 should be allowed <br />a one year window to adopt an ordinance amending each such redevelopment plan <br />to extend the limits to those limits already provided in AB 1290; and <br /> <br /> WHEREAS, this one year window created by AB 1342 commenced on <br />January 1, 1999, and expires on December 31, 1999; and <br /> <br /> WHEREAS, the Legislature further provided in AB 1342 that this one time <br />ordinance should be adopted without resort to the procedures typically required <br />when amending a redevelopment plan, in that it was correcting an irregularity that <br />had adversely affected cities such as the City of Santa Ana which had created their <br />own time limits in redevelopment plans as compared to cities which had never had <br />such time limits but had instead required intervention by the State to create such <br />time limits; and <br /> <br /> WHEREAS, by 1999 Statutes, Chapter 17 (SB 307), an urgency measure <br />signed by the Governor and effective on April 22, 1999, the Legislature has made <br />it clear that the simplified procedures for this one time only ordinance may not be <br />used to extend the time limits in existing redevelopment plans for incurring new <br />debt; and <br /> <br /> <br />
