You’d be forgiven if you forgot how a year ago, the California Strategic Growth Council approved a package of grants worth $70 million for Fresno development projects.

The promised money is part of the Transformative Climate Communities Program, and it was aimed at development programs in Fresno’s downtown, Chinatown and southwest neighborhoods. The projects were envisioned to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while providing economic benefit to disadvantaged communities.

The planning process for this began in 2017, so it’s been a couple of years since TCC has been at the top of mind for Fresno residents.

There is some news to report, though.

In today’s print edition of The Business Journal, reporter Donald A. Promnitz provides an update on that funding. There is movement afoot!

Namely, the Fresno City Council this month is expected to enter a final grant agreement with the state for those dollars.

But, it will be less than $70 million.

To find out why, and to learn when these projects might begin construction, be sure to find a copy of The Business Journal.
