Section 53395.4

(a)

A district may finance only the facilities or services authorized in this chapter to the extent that the facilities or services are in addition to those provided in the territory of the district before the district was created. The additional facilities or services may not supplant facilities or services already available within that territory when the district was created but may supplement those facilities and services as needed to serve new developments.

(b)

A district may include areas that are not contiguous.

(c)

A district may finance a project or portion of a project that is located in, or overlaps with, a redevelopment project area or former redevelopment project area. The successor agency to the former redevelopment agency shall receive a finding of completion, as defined in Section 34179.7 of the Health and Safety Code, prior to the district financing any project or portion of a project under this subdivision.

(d)

Notwithstanding subdivision (c), any debt or obligation of a district shall be subordinate to an enforceable obligation of a former redevelopment agency, as defined in Section 34171 of the Health and Safety Code. For the purposes of this chapter, the division of taxes allocated to the district pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 53396 shall not include any taxes required to be deposited by the county auditor-controller into the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund created pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 34170.5 of the Health and Safety Code.

(e)

The legislative body of the city or county forming the district may choose to dedicate any portion of its net available revenue to the district through the financing plan described in Section 53395.14.

(f)

For the purposes of this section, net available revenue means periodic distributions to the city or county from the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund, created pursuant to Section 34170.5 of the Health and Safety Code, that are available to the city or county after all preexisting legal commitments and statutory obligations funded from that revenue are made pursuant to Part 1.85 (commencing with Section 34170) of Division 24 of the Health and Safety Code. Net available revenue shall not include any funds deposited by the county auditor-controller into the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund or funds remaining in the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund prior to distribution. Net available revenues shall not include any moneys payable to a school district that maintains kindergarten and grades 1 to 12, inclusive, community college districts, or to the Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund, pursuant to paragraph (4) of subdivision (a) of Section 34183 of the Health and Safety Code.
