Pursuing Feasible Opportunities

Sacramento

The County of Sacramento engaged RSG in 2016 to analyze the feasibility of adopting Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts (EIFDs) and Community Revitalization Investment Authority (CRIA) in three former redevelopment project areas.  RSG identified areas eligible for a CRIA, estimated potential tax revenues under both tools, described appropriate uses of EIFD and CRIA funds, and provided recommendations on pursuing these tools versus alternative financing mechanisms.  In addition to conducting the socioeconomic analysis required for CRIAs, RSG conducted a brief windshield survey to determine if the study area had inadequate infrastructure and/or deteriorated structures to meet CRIA requirements.
