Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution demonstrates the City’s commitment to create 57 units of Affordable Housing at 7941 Tree Lane. The 2017 Executive Capital Budget was amended by the Board of Estimates (BOE Amendment #2) to appropriate an additional $1.2m to the Affordable Housing project. This amendment is jointly funded: $750,000 as a direct appropriation from the General Fund and $500,000 from reserves in the Affordable Housing Fund. This commitment will allow the project developers to seek WHEDA tax credits when the application period opens during the 1st Quarter of 2017.
