A Driving Force

Redevelopment in California was one of the driving forces of economic development throughout the state, creating 35,000 jobs per year statewide. It also created more housing units than any other single source, with the exception of the federal government.

Infrastructure improvements were also largely funded through redevelopment agencies, providing better roads, streets, and public facilities.

Irwindale Community Redevelopment Agency

The City of Irwindale had been active in redevelopment activities since 1973, when we established the Irwindale Community Redevelopment Agency (ICRA), with the broad goal of improving the quality of life for its residential and business population.

Through the creative use of private and public partnerships, the ICRA assisted in the development of major industrial parks, commercial improvements, housing, and public infrastructure.
