COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 010610

 

Reaffirming the Councils policy to allocate 1015% of annual City-wide Public Improvement Advisory Committee (PIAC) funds to Downtown capital needs as recommended by FOCUS Kansas City and directing the City Manager to communicate this policy reaffirmation to the Public Improvements Advisory Committee for its deliberations and recommendations.

 

WHEREAS, FOCUS Kansas City, Urban Core Plan, adopted on October 30, 1997, recommends that the Council establish and commit set percentages of City capital improvements funding to the Downtown Loop.; and

 

WHEREAS, FOCUS Kansas City recommended a set percentage of 10-15% of capital improvement funds be spent within the Downtown Loop; and

 

WHEREAS, actual capital improvement funds which have been spent within the Downtown Loop are substantially less than the recommendations of FOCUS, only achieving 3% funding for the Downtown Loop for the past four years; and

 

WHEREAS, it is vitally important that 10-15% of capital improvement funds be spent on deferred maintenance and infrastructure within the Downtown Loop in order to preserve and enhance the redevelopment of Downtown and its economic vitality; and

 

WHEREAS, the adopted 5-year Capital Improvement Plan only projects that 3% of capital improvement funds will be spent within the Downtown Loop through the Citys 2005-06 fiscal year; and

 

WHEREAS, Downtown is the Citys living room, is the focus of renewed public interest in residential activity and is the work place of 55,000-60,000 employees every Monday through Friday; and

 

WHEREAS, Broadway and City Market have unique capital needs and should be included in any definition of downtown; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Council hereby reaffirms the Councils policy to allocate 1015% of annual City-wide Public Improvement Advisory Committee (PIAC) funds to Downtown capital needs, including the City Market and Broadway, as recommended by FOCUS Kansas City and directs the City Manager to communicate this policy reaffirmation to the Public Improvements Advisory Committee for its deliberations and recommendations.
