The redevelopment clock is ticking for the state.
Back in August, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Eugene Balonon ruled in Sonoma County’s favor after the county sued the state over whether or not two former redevelopment projects –the Springs Highway 12 sidewalks and streetlights project and the Roseland shopping plaza in Santa Rosa – were enforceable obligations and could be funded with money from the former redevelopment agency.
Balonon filed the last of the paperwork around Oct. 17, meaning the state could then appeal the decision.
According to Steve Shupe, the county’s counsel working on the suit, the state has until Dec. 23 to file its appeal.
Shupe said he’s heard that the state has appealed other suits, arising out of the redevelopment agency debacle, that it lost.
