Fiscal Note
On October 16, 2012, the Common Council authorized a loan of $180,000 from the City’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF) to the Community Development Authority to provide construction financing for the CDA’s Mosaic Ridge Homeownership Project.

This Resolution seeks to extend the term of repayments of any of those funds that are associated with homes sold to buyers at or below 50% of area median income (AMI). For those buyers, instead of repayment being due at the time of initial sale, some or all of the funds will remain as a long-term deferred loan, due upon sale or transfer of the property.

No new additional funds are being sought by this Resolution, and there is no impact on the local levy
