  • ICSC ALLIANCE PROGRAM – WALNUT CREEK

    Posted: October 1, 2010 | Posted by CBPA | No Comments

    The Alliance Program is a special ICSC initiative that provides forums for the public and private sectors to network, share ideas, discuss industry issues and explore retail development opportunities. ICSC Alliance meetings are both time and cost effective opportunities for public officials, developers, retailers and other industry leaders to grow their relationships and learn from one another.  On Thursday, October 7, you are invited to attend an Alliance luncheon in Walnut Creek.

    Years of chronic budget crisis at the State level have frustrated everyone. Repeatedly, the Legislature has balanced California’s budget by taking or borrowing from local Redevelopment Agencies and other local funds. Local agencies are pushing back with a November ballot initiative, Proposition 22: the Local Taxpayer, Public Safety and Transportation Protection Act. 

    If you develop, own, broker, promote, plan or design commercial or retail property, you need to understand Proposition 22.   Here are some of the questions that will be addressed at this lunch:  How do the “raids” on local funds affect your city, county and business?  What would your city look like without the economic development efforts of your local redevelopment agency?  What about transit, public safety and other locally-collected monies?  Will another “ballot-box budgeting” initiative really solve this problem?
