On January 12, 2012, the City Council elected to become the successor agency of its former redevelopment agency. The City of Montclair Housing Authority elected to become the successor housing agency.The City and the Montclair Housing Authority, as successor agencies, became operative, on February 1, 2012 when state legislation dissolved the Montclair Redevelopment Agency along with all other redevelopment agencies in the State of California.
