WHEREAS, the City Plan Commission has reviewed and recommended approval of the finding of blight of the Midtown Affordable Housing PIEA General Development Plan on October 1, 2019, as evidenced by its disposition of the case and its written recommendations submitted to the City; and

WHEREAS, Section 100.400, RSMo, authorizes the Council to make a finding that an area is a blighted area and approve a general development plan for such area if the Council finds that the plan is feasible and in conformity with the general plan for the development of the community as a whole; and

WHEREAS, on October 6, 2016, the City did pass Second Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 160383, as amended, which Ordinance No. 160383, as amended, enacted guidelines on the City’s use of abated and exempted real property taxes in funding economic development projects; and

WHEREAS, Section 9 of Ordinance No. 160383, as amended, provides that notwithstanding the guidelines set forth therein, the Council retains its discretion to authorize the capture and redirection, or abatement or exemption, in whole or in part, of ad valorem real property taxes to the full extent authorized by any provision of law; NOW, THEREFORE,
