Fiscal Note

The proposed resolution authorizes amending EDD’s Land Banking capital program in the amount of $1.26 million for the acquisition of property located at 1810 South Park Street. The estimated acquisition cost for this parcel is $1,200,000 for the property plus $40,000 in additional real estate costs for environmental site assessment, title work, and miscellaneous closing costs for a total amount of $1,240,000. In addition, $20,000 is added to the 2020 Economic Development Division Budget to pay for holding costs of the property for the remainder of the year.

 

Funding for the purchase and holding costs of the property will be in the form of TIF proceeds, funded by TID #42. The use of TIF proceeds from TID #42 will require a transfer of incremental revenues from TID #39, whereby TID #39 becomes a donor TID to TID #42. The use and transfer for such proceeds within the TIF districts require approval from the TIF Joint Review Board.
