What We Do
OCII—the Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure—has assisted the private market and the City in creating three new San Francisco inclusive neighborhoods—Hunters Point Shipyard/Candlestick Point, Transbay and Mission Bay. Through public-private partnerships, OCII is bringing to life over 1,100 acres of land. Reflecting the diverse character of the City and its residents, the new neighborhoods feature economic vitality, affordable and market rate housing opportunities, and neighborhood-serving amenities such as public parks and open space.
The Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII) is the Successor Agency to the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (SFRA), which was dissolved under State law. OCII is responsible for completing certain obligations of the SFRA that the State has approved that include development in Mission Bay, Transbay, and the Hunters Point Shipyard/Candlestick Point neighborhoods. Collectively, these neighborhood will provide, when they are complete, almost 22,000 new housing units and almost 13 million square feet of new commercial space; the management of significant assets in the City; and the development of over 7,000 affordable housing units and over 375 acres of parks.
OCII is a state-authorized local entity serving as the successor to the former San Francisco Redevelopment Agency. All 400 redevelopment agencies in California were dissolved in February 2012 under state law. OCII is unique among successor agencies to former redevelopment agencies in that it has long-term major development projects approved by the State and requiring the exercise of broad redevelopment authority, including tax increment financing, affordable housing production, and project-specific design and land use approvals.
In response to the dissolution of the SFRA, the City and County of San Francisco created the Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure as the Successor Agency to the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (“Successor Agency”). Pursuant to state and local legislation, the Successor Agency is governed by two bodies: the Oversight Board of the City and County of San Francisco and the Commission on Community Investment and Infrastructure. Click on the links below for meetings and other information for the two governing bodies.
The state has authorized the Successor Agency to continue to implement three major redevelopment projects that were previously administered by the former Redevelopment Agency: 1) the Mission Bay North and South Redevelopment Project Areas, 2) the Hunters Point Shipyard Redevelopment Project Area and Zone 1 of the Bayview Redevelopment Project Area, and 3) the Transbay Redevelopment Project Area (collectively, the “Major Approved Development Projects”). Each of these Major Approved Development Projects has contractual obligations that the State has finally and conclusively determined to have survived the dissolution of the SFRA. The Successor Agency Commission (commonly known as the Commission on Community Investment and Infrastructure) was established by the Board of Supervisors (Ordinance No. 215-12 (Oct. 4, 2012) and exercises land use and development and design approval authority for the Major Approved Development Projects. The Oversight Board of theCity and County of San Francisco was created by state law and has members appointed by the Mayor and by several government agencies, such as the San Francisco Unified School District, Community College, and Bay Area Rapid Transit (the “taxing entities”), who receive property tax revenues. The Oversight Board approves OCII’s annual expenditures, reviews amendments to OCII’s existing enforceable obligations, an provides other monitoring of OCII activities as described in the Redevelopment Dissolution Law.
In performing that function, the Oversight Board owes a fiduciary duty to the holders of enforceable obligations with the former Redevelopment Agency and to the taxing entities that are entitled to an allocation of property taxes.

On January 24, 2012, the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco adopted Resolution No. 11-12 in response to the state’s dissolution of all redevelopment agencies in California. Significantly, this local legislation designated the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD) as the housing successor to the SFRA. As a result, all completed affordable housing assets of the former Redevelopment Agency were transferred to MOHCD, which continues to receive OCII’s affordable housing assets after they are fully funded and completed.
On September 25, 2012, the Board of Supervisors adopted Ordinance No. 215-12, which created the Successor Agency Commission and delegated to the Commission the Board of Supervisor’s authority under Redevelopment Dissolution Law. Resolution No. 11-12
