Now that DOF has decided 240 redevelopment appeals, the next step shouldn't surprise anybody: The lawsuits are beginning to roll in:
Murrieta has sued DOF over its decision to invalidate two payments – one a $3 million payment to the city from the RDA and the second a $1.2 million payment to developers on an affordable housing project called Monte Vista
El Cerrito has settled its lawsuit with DOF, which permitted the city to skip a $1.7 million "true-up" payment
The city always used redevelopment funds aggressively to cover operating costs. Oakland claims 2,000 affordable housing units are at risk.
