Title
Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute an Assignment and Assumption Agreement and Subordination of Mortgage allowing Ponwood Circle, LLC to assume all obligations as Borrower on a loan originally made to the Wisconsin Initiatives in Sustainable Housing, Inc. d/b/a WISH Trust for the property located at 132 Ponwood Circle, Unit A.
Body

WISH Trust is a non-profit organization that was established to provide affordable housing for people with disabilities. The CDBG Office provided a long-term deferred loan with shared appreciation payable upon sale, change in use, or transfer of the unit. The City holds a mortgage with WISH Trust in the amount of $42,500 to secure its loan.

WISH Trust initially intended to grow as an affordable housing organization and acquire enough properties to maintain a viable portfolio.

MOI has established Ponwood Circle, LLC, a single-member LLC whose sole member is Movin' Out, Inc., which is prepared to acquire and manage the unit at 132 Ponwood Circle, Unit A as an affordable HOME rental unit. WISH Trust will deed the unit to Ponwood Circle, LLC and replace WISH Trust’s existing first mortgage ($24,000) with private financing.
