(b) The Redevelopment Area, as amended, as a whole is a conservation area, and has not been subject to growth and development through investment by private enterprise and would not reasonably be anticipated to be developed without the adoption of the Fourth Amendment to the Winchester Center Tax Increment Financing Plan;

(c) The Fourth Amendment to the Winchester Center Tax Increment Financing Plan conforms to the comprehensive plan for the development of the City as a whole;

(d) The estimated dates of completion of the respective Redevelopment Projects and retirement of any obligations incurred to finance Redevelopment Project Costs, have been stated in the Fourth Amendment to the Winchester Center Tax Increment Financing Plan and are not more than 23 years from the adoption of any ordinance approving a Redevelopment Project within the Redevelopment Area, as amended;

Pursuant to the provisions of the Fourth Amendment to the Winchester Center Tax Increment Financing Plan, the City Council approves the pledge of all funds generated from Redevelopment Projects that are deposited into the Winchester Center Account of the Special Allocation Fund to the payment of Redevelopment Project Costs within the Redevelopment Area, as amended, and authorizes the Commission to pledge such funds on its behalf.
