The City of Albany redevelopment agency was established as the Albany Community Reinvestment Agency. The California Legislature adopted legislation which dissolved all redevelopment agencies effective February 1, 2012. The State established a dissolution process that required the creation of a Successor Agency for the purpose of winding down any remaining obligations of the former redevelopment agency.

On January 9, 2012, the Albany City Council adopted Resolution No. 2012-1 which declared the intent of the Albany City Council to serve as the Successor Agency to the Albany Community Reinvestment Agency. Under the dissolution process the State Law also requires an Oversight Board. Visit the Oversight Board webpage for information related to the activities of the Oversight Board.
