SMC Panel To Ask: Where is the Money Going?:

The Santa Monica College Public Policy Institute will present a panel and audience discussion on “The End of Redevelopment?,” from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23 at the college’s Bundy Campus Room 123, 3171 S. Bundy Drive, Los Angeles.

The possible demise of redevelopment projects in California’s cities and counties and the redirection of billions of tax dollars generated by past projects has brought the word “redevelopment” front and center and represents a tectonic shift in public policy. In the forum, three experts deeply involved in the current redevelopment discussion explain the beginnings of redevelopment and its funding, uses to which it has been put, Gov. Brown’s decision to discontinue it, and evaluations of what should happen next. The panel discussion will be followed by an hour of robust audience participation.

The speakers are State Assemblymember Julia Brownley of Santa Monica, chair of the Assembly Education Committee; Clifford Graves, general manager of economic development for the City of Carson; and Murray O. Kane, senior principal with Kane, Ballmer & Berkman.

The panel discussion is hosted by SMC Public Policy Institute Founding Director and former State Sen. Sheila Kuehl of Santa Monica.

The ongoing mission of the institute is to engage the community in analyzing issues of public policy, especially those that affect local jurisdictions like cities and counties, and to provide forums such as this for civic engagement. The event is free but seating is limited and reservations are required. To RSVP, email ppi.rsvp@smc.edu. For questions, call (310) 434-3429.

For more information about the institute and its activities, please call (310) 434-3429 or email Kuehl.website@gmail.com.
