Is the Fox Theater at risk of being sold due to the end of Redevelopment?

This question has recently come up, and the short answer is “no”.  The Redevelopment Agency purchased the old Fox Theater and then transferred the property to the City, many years prior to AB26.  The City took control of the property so that we could use our design/build process to conduct the renovations.  The agency has not had control of this property for years- so it is not on the list of properties that the City transferred to the the Successor Agency because all of the RDA’s involvement on this project (as I have already stated) pre-dated AB26 and the deadline that the State Controller recently established for the return of transferred properties, which was January 1, 2011.  The Fox is safely in the hands of the City and not at risk.
