Title
An Ordinance approving the Petition for Establishment of the Southside Plaza Community Improvement District.
(Note: This item was first read by City Council on May 19, 2020.)

Body

An Ordinance Approving the Petition for Establishment of the Southside Plaza Community Improvement District.

Key Issues:

Proposed City Council Motion:
Motion: I move for adoption of an Ordinance Approving the Petition for Establishment of the Southside Plaza Community Improvement District.

Background:
The memorandum from the Law Department provides a full summary of the project and background.

The Petition provides for the reimbursement of approximately $1.44 million in costs associated with public improvements that will serve Southside Plaza shopping center which is located on about 5.24 acres of property which is north of SW Blue Parkway, just each of Nichols Road.

The CID is proposed to fund repairs and remodeling costs associated with improvements to the shopping center. The CID funding source would be a 1% sales and use tax which would provide reimbursement to developer or repayment of CID debt. The CID sales tax will be in effect until the developer has been reimbursed with interest, but the CID will not last longer than 27 years.

A Cooperative Agreement to be negotiated and considered by the City Council at a later date, will include provisions to ensure that the improvements which will be funded by the CID will be properly maintained for the life of the CID.

Impact/Analysis:

Timeline:
