Successor Agency to Vista Redevelopment Agency
While Vista’s Redevelopment Agency’s efforts have provided the City of Vista with much needed community services, infrastructure improvements, and job opportunities, such as the Vista Business Park, Vista Village, North County Square, Custom and the Vista Transit Center, the bill that would have extended the life of California’s redevelopment agencies did not pass.
As required by State Legislation, the Vista Redevelopment Agency (RDA) was dissolved as of February 1, 2012. While the Agency no longer exists, the Successor Agency (City of Vista) has assumed responsibility for administering enforceable obligations of the RDA, completing existing projects, and moving forward with the process of formally dissolving the RDA operations over time.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
Main priorities of the CDBG program are to ensure decent affordable housing for all, provide services to the most vulnerable, create jobs and expand business opportunities. The 2004-2009 Consolidated Plan identifies housing, community, and economic development needs. It has a strategy with an action plan to meet those needs. Most of the programs in the Consolidated Plan are funded by Community Development Block Grant funds, HOME funds, and Redevelopment Housing Set-Aside funds
