San Bernardino County will assume control of its redevelopment projects while beginning to shut down the agency that has overseen the community-improvement efforts.

The Board of Supervisors agreed last week to have the county take over as the successor agency following a state Supreme Court ruling upholding state legislation that dissolves redevelopment agencies.

The agencies must shut down by Feb. 1, although projects funded with bonds already sold will continue.

The county has redevelopment areas in Cedar Glen and the unincorporated area outside of Fontana. The Cedar Glen redevelopment district has funded road and water improvements to help the San Bernardino Mountains community recover from the 2003 Old Fire that destroyed more than 300 homes there. The San Sevaine district has helped promote business in the industrial area around California Steel Industries.
