140825
Establishing a policy for capping the amount of ad valorem real property taxes that may be utilized in furtherance of certain economic development projects, and establishing an effective date.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA (10/15/2014)"
Mayor James offered testimony on this Ordinance. This ordinance would cap the amount of ad valorem real property taxes that could be utilized to fund any LCRA, PIEA, Port Authority, TIF, Chapter 100, sale-leaseback or Chapter 353 project by limiting the amount of real property tax abatements to 50% of the real property taxes, requiring the payment of PILOTS so that the taxing jurisdictions receive at least 50% of the real property taxes , and/or excluding the pledge of such taxes to the extent it would cause the taxing jurisdictions to receive less than 50% of the real property taxes that would otherwise be due them. The objective is the same across the board; the mechanisms for achieving it vary depending on the economic tool used. The City Council would retain the right to authorize a higher level of real property tax incentives, up to the full limits contemplated by the relevant laws, if it determines that the City's economic development policies support a higher level of incentives and/or the City is at a competitive disadvantage because it's competing with a jurisdiction that isn't operating under similar restrictions. The policy would apply prospectively only and would not impair any rights under anything approved prior to January 1, 2015. Chairman Ford announced that public testimony would be taken for approximately an hour today, and then the Ordinance would be held on the Agenda for one week with testimony for at least the next 3 weeks.

Rezoning a 1.3 acre tract of land generally located along the west side of Baltimore Avenue between 13th Street and 14th Street from District DC-15 to District UR, and approving a preliminary development plan which also serves as a preliminary plat, to allow for the reuse of an existing building for commercial and residential uses and to allow the construction of a new mixed commercial and residential building with a parking garage. (11754-UR).


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The applicant is seeking tax abatement under the 14th and Baltimore PIEA Plan which requires a rezoning to UR for the proposed development. UR zoning requests are required to be accompanied by a preliminary development plan which has been provided and this case also acts as a preliminary plat. The plans propose renovation of the existing Power and Light Building into a 213 unit apartment building, and new construction of a five-level, 507-space parking garage wrapped with a 7-story building consisting of 80 residential units above 6,654 square feet of ground level retail. Exterior changes to the Power and Light Building are governed by the Department of Interior Standards for the renovation of historic properties, therefore the elevations provided do not show any modifications, though the applicant has indicated that windows will be replaced, the exterior will be cleaned, and common spaces for resident amenities may be added where the building steps back on the 16th, 20th, 22nd, 27th, 29th and 31st floors.
