RESOLUTION NO. 160784

 

Directing the City Manager to propose amendments to the City’s CID policy to address recent proposals.

 

WHEREAS, the Community Improvement District Act, Section 67.1401, RSMo, et seq., (“CID Act”) allows property owners to voluntarily form a district in which certain taxes and special assessments are levied in return for local benefits; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Council is charged by the CID Act with conducting a public hearing for determining whether a lawfully petitioned district should be established; and

 

  WHEREAS, Second Committee Substitute for Resolution No. 120605 was adopted by the City Council on March 7, 2013 for the purpose of establishing the City’s policy for approval of new community improvement districts; and

 

WHEREAS, Resolution No. 130844, adopted on November 7, 2013, amended said policy; and

 

WHEREAS, recent requests to establish new CIDs have created questions as to whether the existing policy adequately reflects the Council’s priorities, provides for the fair treatment of those within certain industries, and provides adequate guidance to the Council in approving new CIDs; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City Manager is hereby directed to propose any amendments to the existing CID policy that he deems advisable in light of the CIDs recently proposed to the City Council. The City Manager is directed to make this proposal within sixty days of the date this resolution is adopted.
