RESOLUTION - Declaring the City Council’s expectations for evaluating financial need with respect to the utilization of real property taxes.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Katherine Carttar, City Manager’s Office, gave the staff report. It was noted that this is a companion to Ordinance 140825. This resolution codifies the current process of project evaluation. The EDC shall not recommend a project to the City Council for the commitment of real property taxes unless the project has been evaluated using the AdvanceKC Scorecard, which determines the extent to which the project aligns with the Council's priorities, and a financial analysis has been done to determine the amount of incentives needed to fill the gap and nothing more. This process applies to site-based projects seeking the abatement of ad valorem real property taxes through LCRA, PIEA, Port Authority, TIF, Chapter 100, sale-leaseback or Chapter 353. By obtaining a financial analysis that assesses each project's viability with and without varying levels of incentives and by comparing the leveraged and unleveraged internal rate of return to an appropriate market benchmark, the evaluation process will emphasize the City Council's stated policy to "Provide incentives for real estate projects only as necessary to fill the financial gap."

RESOLUTION - Amending the South Central Area Plan in an area of approximately 2 acres generally located at the northwest corner of 53rd Street and Troost Avenue by changing the recommended land use designation from Institutional to Mixed Use Neighborhood. (249-S-13)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "BE ADOPTED"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Resolution. It was noted that this is a companion to Ordinance 150521. Councilwoman Marcason offered her support of the project. The applicant is proposing demolition of the former school and development of an 85-unit multi-unit residential building. A portion of the proposed building and parking to serve the building is located on a part of the site zoned R-6, causing the need to rezone. The applicant has submitted an application to rezone the entire site from R-6 and B3-2 to MPD (Master Planned Development), a type of zoning district which requires concurrent approval of a preliminary development plan pursuant to 88-520-02. While the plan shows the entire 5-acre site, the northern half which includes the church and a 69-space surface parking lot will remain as is. Redevelopment of the site is limited to the southern half. On this portion of the site, the developer proposes retaining the parish hall building, demolishing the former school, the construction of a new 4-story (49’-6” in total height), 85-unit residential building, and construction of 174 parking spaces. The plan shows the parish hall as “existing commons to remain” in the middle of the site just south of the driveway from Troost. The proposed residential building is “u-shaped” and located adjacent to the right-of-way lines of Troost and 53rd St, with a north-south wing at the west end of the building. An 87-space parking lot is located within the area surrounded by the building and points northward, including some parking located below the portion of the building fronting along 53rd St. A 74-space lot is located to the west, accessed from 53rd St on the south, and connecting internally to the 87-space lot, the drive from Troost and the existing 75-space lot west of the church. An additional 13 parking spaces are proposed along the drive from Troost. This amounts to a total of 249 spaces on the overall site (including church parking). The parish hall proposed to remain will continue to be used for parish ministry according to the applicant but will also be shared with the residents. The ground level of the proposed building along Troost is proposed to contain ancillary uses including a chapel, study area, fitness center, management offices, and conference room all primarily intended for use by residents according to the applicant. The remainder of the ground level will consist of 8 residential units. The remaining 77 units are proposed for the upper three floors.

John Eckardt, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. It was noted that this is a companion to Resolution 150545. Nearly two years ago, the Kansas City Homesteading Authority (KCHA) sent out a Request for Qualifications and Proposals for the development of not only the subject site, but portions of the blocks to the south and east of the subject—extending to E 53rd Street. The KCHA is made up of various City of Kansas City officials whose task is to own and redevelopment generally foreclosed property. The Brinshore Development Company from Chicago responded to the request and was selected the developer for phase one of the project. Brinshore selected the subject location for its initial development and based upon market studies, proposed a senior living complex. The site has been chosen by the city as a high priority project in receiving Low Income Housing Tax Credits which assist the developer in providing up-front monies to develop. According to staff in Neighborhood and Community Services, the project has been awarded $340,000 in HOME/LIHTC funds. In addition, the site is receiving over $300,000 in Public Improvement Advisory Committee (PIAC) funds for the future construction of E 52nd Street. East 52nd Street is the street on the south side of the development which will serve as access to the proposed development.
