Redevelopment Project Areas
RDA Resolution for EOPS
The City of Visalia had four (4) redevelopment project areas:
The City Council serves as the Agency board, the City Manager serves as the Executive Director, and the Finance Department administers the day-to-day activities of the Redevelopment Agency.
Reports and plans highlighting the Redevelopment Agency include:
The East Downtown is an exciting new area encompassing more than 175 acres. The new frontier will extend Visalia’s prized “jewel” Downtown Visalia, from Bridge Street to Ben Maddox Avenue and from Mineral King Avenue northward to Houston Street.
Over the past five years, the City has been acquiring and assembling land while preparing for the future with strategic planning efforts. The plans completed to date include:
Roads & Infrastructure
In February 2008, the City retained the services of Provost & Pritchard Engineering Group to prepare construction drawings for the Civic Center block. This will include extension of School Avenue from Tipton to Burke streets; improvements to Oak Avenue between Tipton and Burke streets in coordination with the PUC, Union Pacific and San Joaquin Railroad.
New Public Safety Complex
The City will soon release a Request For Proposal (RFP) for architectural services and a Request For Qualifications (RFQ) for construction management services for a new state-of-the-art public safety facility. The facility will be located in the Civic Center at the southwest corner of Oak Avenue and Burke Street.
Other plans over the next 2-3 years include:
