California voters broadly support redevelopment agencies.  In a recent statewide survey of likely California voters, 59% say redevelopment agencies are a good idea.
Voters overwhelmingly say that redevelopment agencies put tax dollars to good use.  Among those who initially say that redevelopment agencies are a bad idea, most are moved to support redevelopment agencies when presented with how agencies spend their resources.

Self-described liberal/progressive voters, Black/African-American voters, Asian voters and Latino/Hispanic voters are even more likely to support redevelopment agencies than other groups.
