Section 3. The Council hereby finds that: 

 

(a) Good cause has been shown for amendment of the Redevelopment Plan, and that the findings of the Council in Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 971698, As Amended, and Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 081070 with respect to the Redevelopment Plan are not affected by the Second Amendment and apply equally to the Second Amendment; 

 

(b) The Redevelopment Area, as amended, is a blighted area, as a whole, 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 Redevelopment Plan, as amended, and the Second Amendment;  

 

(c) The Redevelopment Plan, as amended, conforms to the comprehensive plan for the development of the City as a whole;  

 

(d) The areas selected for Redevelopment Projects include only those parcels of real property and improvements therein which will be directly and substantially benefited by the Redevelopment Project improvements;

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

 

Section 5. Pursuant to the provisions of the Redevelopment Plan, as amended, the City Council approves the pledge of all funds generated from Redevelopment Projects that are deposited into the Union Hill Account of the Special Association 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.
