Fiscal Note

Resolution 16-00897 authorized Affordable Housing funds for Heartland Housing to develop affordable housing units at 1202 S Park Street. Heartland Housing was later notified they were unsuccessful in receiving tax credits for the project. Heartland plans to resubmit the project for tax credits as part of the 2018 award cycle. Holding costs associated with maintaining the property prior to development negatively impacts the viability of the project for Heartland. Under the proposed resolution the City will purchased the property from Heartland for $640,000 utilizing existing funds from the Affordable Housing Fund. The balance of the funding will be reauthorized to the 2018 Capital Budget. If successful in receiving tax credits next year, Heartland will purchase the property back from the City for development.
