Community Redevelopment Agency

Map of Community Redevelopment Agency
Portions of the University Park campus are located in project areas and districts that are under the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency. The Exposition/University Park Redevelopment Project Area (formerly known as the Hoover and Hoover Expansion Redevelopment Project) was established in 1966 to help retain the University of Southern California within the City of Los Angeles. In subsequent years, the project has been expanded to encompass Exposition Park, the Figueroa and Vermont commercial corridors, and the historic Adams Boulevard area. The goals of the redevelopment plan call for the elimination of physical, economic and social blight through the creation of catalytic developments that promote a thriving business environment as well as enhance the surrounding residential community.

State Enterprise Zones
