Redevelopment is Vital to California and Turlock Economies – by Mayor John Lazar

Look around Turlock and you’re bound to see so many examples of how redevelopment works and works for our community.


It’s been a part of improving our infrastructure, our safety, our schools, our housing, our economy and more. We have new sewer and water infrastructure, better intersection safety, a new Public Safety Center under construction, a restored Carnegie Center nearing completion of construction, Central Park improvements, first-time home buyers’ assistance, housing for seniors and low income families, planning for expanded downtown parking and other community projects.

We have the benefits of redevelopment because of the leadership of our city leaders and state legislators. They know why this program is important to Turlock. They are working day in and out to strengthen our economy and get people back to work and redevelopment is part of the solution. Redevelopment is critical to keeping a portion of local property taxes here in our community where that money is leveraged for the greatest economic benefit.
Nothing however is perfect, redevelopment included and that’s why its champions are calling for some substantive reforms that will make this program even more economically powerful for California.
But the Governor is calling for the complete elimination of this important economic program. He wants to kill it, threatening our state’s ability to once again shine as the Golden State. The Governor doesn’t appear to be able to think beyond this year’s budget crisis. What he is forgetting is that by fixing redevelopment’s problems, he can be part of the solution to insure that California doesn’t continue to have skyrocketing unemployment and multi-billion dollar deficits year in and out.
Join me in urging the Governor to mend redevelopment, not end it, to protect our future.
Please contact the Governor’s office at State Capitol, Suite 1173, Sacramento, CA 95814 or by phone (916) 445-2841.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews.
