In early 2012 the State of California ‘took back’ the ability of cities to use Redevelopment to withhold property tax increases from the State.
Cities across the State sued and lost in Court. Now the State is threatening to seize projects and sell off for a one time cash infusion.
Glendale used the RD process to buy, restore and operate the Alex as a performing arts center (music, dance and occasional film screenings by the Alex Film Society).
In a few weeks the Alex’s fate may be known.
Check out the Alex Film Society at the Alex. We love to do shows just like your mother saw as a kid in the Alex. A cartoon, short or newsreel and a pristine print of a classic feature film. www.AlexFilmSociety.org
