ORDINANCE NO. 120882

 

Determining that a public benefit will be gained by the waiver of a demolition lien on the property located at 2826 Prospect Avenue; and authorizing the City Manager to waive the lien.

 

WHEREAS, there exists a demolition lien against the property located at 2826 Prospect Avenue (“Property”), which is currently owned by the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority (“LCRA”) and which was owned by the Housing and Economic Development Financial Corporation (“HEDFC”) at the time of demolition, in the amount of $37,145.66; and

 

WHEREAS, the structure located on the Property was designated a dangerous building and removed by the City of Kansas City, Missouri and the demolition lien stands as an impediment to the redevelopment of the site and surrounding properties; and

 

WHEREAS, the Metropolitan A.M.E. Zion Church (“Church”) would like to acquire the Property which is adjacent to their current location, in order to further the Church’s long term plan; and

WHEREAS, the HEDFC offered the Property to the Church who was unable to accept the Property with the outstanding lien in place; and 

WHEREAS, the LCRA agreed to accept the property from HEDFC and has, by Resolution No. 7-01-12, agreed to transfer the property to the Church subject to the successful waiver of the demolition lien; and 

WHEREAS, the Church agrees to maintain the Property as a side yard to their current property until such time as funding is available to incorporate the site into the proposed Church complex; and

WHEREAS, the Lien Waiver Committee recommends waiver of this lien and all accrued interest; NOW, THEREFORE, 

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That in accordance with Section 56-547(3) of the Code of Ordinances, the Council finds and determines that a public benefit will be gained by the waiver of the demolition lien on the Property in that the proposed improvements will clear blight, remediate environmental hazards and promote redevelopment.

 


Section 2. That in accordance with Section 56-547(1) of the Code of Ordinances, the City Manager is hereby authorized to waive the aforementioned demolition lien, thus facilitating the transfer of the Property from LCRA to the Church.
