SECOND COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 120731

Accepting the recommendations of the Tax Increment Financing Commission of Kansas City, Missouri as to the First Amendment to the 39th and Prospect Tax Increment Financing Plan; approving the First Amendment to the 39th and Prospect Tax Increment Financing Plan; and directing the City Clerk to transmit copies of this ordinance.

WHEREAS, the City Council, by Ordinance No. 061319, accepted the recommendations of the Tax Increment Financing Commission of Kansas City, Missouri (“Commission”),approved the 39th and Prospect Tax Increment Financing Plan (“Plan”) and designated a Redevelopment Area; and

WHEREAS, a first amendment to the Plan (“First Amendment”) was proposed to the Commission and the Commission, having been duly constituted and its members appointed, after proper notice was given, met in public hearing, and after receiving the comments of all interested persons and taxing districts, closed the public hearing; and

WHEREAS, the First Amendment provides modifications to (i) the legal description for Project Area 1 associated with the Plan, (ii) the Development Schedule contemplated by the Plan, (iii) the estimated Redevelopment Project Costs and Reimbursable Costs within the Plan, (iv) the estimated Payments in Lieu of Taxes and Economic Activity Taxes within the Plan, (v) the Sources and Uses of Funds, and (vi) additional evidence to support the Commission’s finding that the Redevelopment Area has not been subject to growth and development through investment of private enterprise and would not be reasonably anticipated to be developed without the adoption of tax increment financing, as more particularly set forth on Exhibit 9, the “But For” Exhibit to the Plan, and was approved by the Commission on July 11, 2012, by adoption of Resolution No. 7-10-12; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

Section 1. That the recommendations of the Commission concerning the First Amendment to the 39th and Prospect Tax Increment Financing Plan as set forth in the Resolution attached hereto as Exhibit A are hereby accepted and the First Amendment, as further amended by the Council to delete the public participation requirement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit B, as amended, is hereby approved and adopted as valid.

Section 2. That all terms used in this ordinance, not otherwise defined herein, shall be construed as defined in the Real Property Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment Act, Sections 99.800 to 99.865, RSMo (“Act”).

Section 3. That the City Council hereby finds that good cause has been shown for the amendment of the Plan and that the findings of the Council in Ordinance No. 061319 are not affected by the First Amendment and apply equally to the First Amendment.

Section 4. That the First Amendment does not alter the previous findings of the City Council as follows:

a. The Redevelopment Area as a whole is an economic development area, as defined in Section 99.805(5) of the Act, 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 Redevelopment Plan. The lack of sufficient street improvements, interchanges, and other infrastructure has inhibited the development of the Redevelopment Area.

b. The Plan conforms to the comprehensive plan for the development of the City as a whole.

c. The areas selected for Redevelopment Projects include only those parcels of real property and improvements thereon which will be directly and substantially benefited by the Redevelopment Project Improvements.

d. The estimated dates of completion of the Redevelopment Projects and retirement of obligations incurred to finance Redevelopment Project Costs have been stated in the First Amendment and are not more than 23 years from the passage of any ordinance approving a Redevelopment Project within the Redevelopment Area.

e. The Plan includes a plan for relocation assistance for businesses and residences.

f. A cost-benefit analysis showing the impact of the Plan on each taxing district which is at least partially within the boundaries of the Redevelopment Area has been prepared in accordance with the Act.

g. The Plan does not include the initial development or redevelopment of any gambling establishment.

h. A study has been completed and the findings of such study satisfy the requirements provided under Section 99.810, RSMo.

Section 3. That the following described area is hereby designated as Project 1 within the redevelopment area:

Project Area 1: All of Lots 9 through 32, Reed's Place, a subdivision of land in Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri, more particularly described as follows: Beginning at the southeast corner of said Lot 16, said point also being on the west right-of-way line of Prospect Avenue and on the north right-of-way line of 39th Street as said streets are now established; thence North 87 degrees 38 minutes 30 seconds West along the south line of said Lots 16 through 25 and along the north right-of-way line of said 39th Street, a distance of 252.00 feet to the southwest corner of said Lot 25, said point also being on the east right-of-way line of Wabash Avenue, as now established; thence North 2 degrees 25 minutes 09 seconds East, along the west line of said Lots 25 through 32 and along the east right-of-way line of said Wabash Avenue, a distance of 353.00 feet to the northwest corner of said Lot 32; thence South 87 degrees 40 minutes 08 seconds East, along the north line of said Lots 32 and 9, a distance of 252.00 feet, to the northeast corner of said Lot 9, said point also being on the west right-of-way line of said Prospect Avenue; thence South 2 degrees 25 minutes 09 seconds West along the east line of said Lots 9 through 16 and along the west right-of-way line of said Prospect Avenue, a distance of 353.00 feet, to the point of beginning. The above described tract of land contains 88,956 square feet, equal to 2.042 acres, more or less.

Any obligations issued to finance Redevelopment Project Costs shall contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to Sections 99.800 to 99.865 of the Act, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and of the regularity of their issuance.

Section 5. That the City Council approves the pledge of all funds that are deposited into the 39th and Prospect Tax Increment Financing Plan Account of the Special Allocation Fund to the payment of Redevelopment Project Costs within the Redevelopment Area and authorizes the Commission to pledge such funds on its behalf.
