(Sub.)
Authorizing the City Manager to execute certain agreements with the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, Kansas City Downtown Hotel Group, LLC, and Broadway Square Partners, LLP for the purposes of providing financial assistance in the renovation of the Marriott-Muehlebach hotel complex, and obtaining the right to utilize up to two hundred parking spaces for purposes of encouraging economic development in the downtown loop; authorizing the City Manager to execute a petition to establish theĀ 12th & Wyandotte Community Improvement District; and establishing a delayed effective date with respect to Section 1 of this ordinance.


FINANCE AND GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Troy Schulte, City Manager, and Dave France, attorney for the KC Downtown Hotel Group, testified that this ordinance would authorize the City Manager to execute certain agreements with the Land Clearance Redevelopment Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, the Kansas City Downtown Hotel Group, LLC, and Broadway Square Partners, LLP to provide financial assistance in the renovations of the Marriott-Muhelbach hotel complex. The city owns the land underneath the Marriott as well as the underground parking garage. Marriott is currently preparing to invest $34.5 million in capital upgrades to the hotel. The bulk of that $32.8M will be spent upgrading the interior of the guest rooms and adjacent spaces. Marriott is submitting a petition to establish a CID over the site. That CID will impose a 1% sales tax. The revenues generated by the CID will offset the City's financial obligation dollar for dollar. Because the city owns the property it will have to sign the petition. The ordinance authorizes the City Manager to do so, consistent with the City's standing CID policies. Marriott is also signing a room block agreement with VisitKC in exchange for the public investment, so the city will also have the benefit to access room quantities that will allow us to book larger conventions.
