VII. ATTAINMENT OF THE PURPOSES OF THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT LAW.   The purposes of the California Community Redevelopment Law would be attained by the proposed redevelopment through:

(1) the elimination of blighting influences and the correction of environmental deficiencies, including, among others, buildings in which it is unsafe or unhealthy for persons to live or work, incompatible and uneconomic land uses, and small and irregular lots;

(2) the assembly of land into parcels suitable for modern, integrated development with improved pedestrian and vehicular circulation;

(3) the replanning, redesign, and redevelopment of areas which are stagnant or improperly utilized;

(4) the provision of opportunities for participation by owners and tenants in the revitalization of their properties;

(5) the strengthening of retail and other commercial functions in the Project Area;

(6) the strengthening of the economic base of the Project Area by stimulating new investment;

(7) the expansion of employment opportunities;

(8) the provision of an environment for social and economic growth;

(9) the expansion and improvement of housing for low- and moderate-income persons; and

VIII. CONSISTENCY WITH THE GENERAL PLAN OF THE COUNTY.   This Preliminary Plan is consistent with the Lake County General Plan as it is proposed to be amended and as it may be amended from time to time. This Preliminary Plan proposes a conforming pattern of land uses and includes all highways and public facilities indicated by said General Plan.

IX. GENERAL IMPACT OF THE PROJECT UPON THE RESIDENTS THEREOF AND UPON SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS.   It is proposed that the principal purpose of the Project be the elimination and prevention of blight through the assistance and encouragement of public and private rehabilitation and redevelopment efforts, through selective land acquisition, clearance and disposition for private redevelopment, and through the provision of new or replacement of existing public improvements, facilities, and utilities within and serving the Project Area. Direct redevelopment activity should occur only when sufficient financial resources are available and such action will produce effective and immediate redevelopment results.   The impact of the proposed Project upon occupants of that area and surrounding neighborhoods may, in general, be in areas of relocation, traffic circulation, public facilities and services, environmental quality, employment opportunity, and economic development. Agency activities in the proposed Project may include property acquisition, relocation of occupants, demolition of structures, construction of public improvements, and land disposition for private development.   The environmental impacts of the project will be considered in detail by the Agency in the Project Environmental Impact Report.
