(SD1557A)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. It was noted that this is a companion to Ordinance 170210. The City intends to sell Kemper Arena to a private developer who will repurpose and rehabilitate the arena for an indoor youth sports venue to be called Mosaic Arena. The developer is seeking tax abatement under the previously-approved Central Industrial District PIEA Plan, and as a result rezoning to District UR is required. The City will retain ownership of the large parking lot to the east which provides parking for both the arena and the American Royal Complex. A small parking lot immediately north of the arena is on the subject property and will be sold along with the arena itself. The property is unplatted, for this reason, and due to the intent to sell, approval of a preliminary plat and final plat is required in addition to the rezoning. The developer does not intend to make external modifications to the arena, parking area or grounds at this time. All modifications contemplated are to occur inside the arena. Due to the lack of modifications outside, the plan reflects existing conditions. Staff is recommending a number of plan changes and notes to address any future exterior modifications and create an expectation as to how such modifications may be reviewed and approved.
