Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the activities associated with construction of the Capitol East Parking Structure as part of the development agreement with American Family Mutual Insurance Company and Gebhardt Development. The Adopted 2016 Capital Budget includes $7,000,000 for the parking structure under the Economic Development Division, and the 2017 Executive Capital Budget includes an additional $6 million, for a total budget for the project of $13 million. The initial estimated cost for the project has increased to $16 million with the decision to pursue a larger ramp with 600 parking stalls.

The funding sources for the total project cost of $16 million are as follows:

$7 million Tax Increment Financing (TIF) - supported Borrowing
$5 million General Fund-supported General Obligation Borrowing
$3 million Parking Utility Cash Reserves
$1 million General Land Acquisition Fund

Should the project be completed under budget, any savings will be used to reduce the General Fund contribution to the project cost. The goal depending on the performance of the District is to have TIF pay the entire share of the project that is not otherwise paid by Parking Utility reserves.

Under the adopted TIF project plan, the City has the authority to reimburse itself for up to $2 million of its borrowed expense from TIF for a total TIF contribution of $9 million. The project plan can be further amended to increase the contribution above $9 million depending on actual TIF incremental revenues received.

The land acquisition costs, included in the total project cost above, will be determined as follows:

The City will purchase a portion of MG&E’s holdings for $16/s.f. Currently the estimated purchase will be 62,100 s.f. for a total cost of $993,600; however, this will be subject to change pending the confirmation of the exact area of land to be purchased. The source of funding for this will be the General Land Acquisition Fund.

Additionally, Gebhardt Development...
