Declaring a .52 acre tract of land generally located at 2100 Wyandotte Street to be a blighted and insanitary area in need of redevelopment and rehabilitation pursuant to the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority Law and approving the Urban Renewal Plan for the same, said plan to be known as the Arterra 21/2100 Wyandotte Urban Renewal Plan. (715-S)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Joe Rexwinkle, City Planning and Development, alongside of Bob Long, Economic Development Corporation (EDC) gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The owner will propose construction of a 12 story mixed use structure with ground-level retail uses, residential uses and structured parking. The purpose of the request is to declare the plan area blighted and approve an urban renewal plan which would allow the LCRA to provide real property tax abatement to the owner in order to “stimulate private reinvestment in market-rate multi-family housing..”. The benefits of developing within an urban renewal plan area are: 1) pursuant to Section 99.420(4) RSMo, the LCRA receives the power of eminent domain from the City Council and may exercise this power for the purpose of assisting redevelopment projects and/or eradication of blight or insanitary conditions, and 2) the LCRA may grant tax abatement to the developer as allowed for in Chapter 99 RSMo (assessed valuation of property is “frozen” for 10 years of abatement on the increased valuation of the property).

(Sub.)
Amending Chapter 88, the Zoning and Development Code, Sections 88-225-02, 88-225-06 and 88-605-06, to clarify procedures for establishment of a neighborhood conservation overlay district and the review board. (254-S-300)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Patty Noll and Brad Wolf, both from the City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The Neighborhood Conservation Overlay (NC/O) District is one of several overlay types adopted with the new Zoning & Development Code in 2008, effective in 2011. Other types of overlay districts are Historic, Special Review, and Special Character. For the first time, staff is working with a neighborhood group in establishing an NC/O. This type of overlay, unlike the others, requires that an Overlay Design Review Board be appointed by the Mayor. Staff, realizing that this would require establishment of another board, discussed with several appropriate parties the need to revise text regarding makeup and administration of the board. Essentially, the proposal is that the board Overlay Design Review Board be composed of an existing Historic Preservation Commission member, a City Plan Commission member, representatives of the neighborhood affected by the overlay, and one urban planner appointed by the Mayor.
