Authorizing a cooperative agreement for up to $1,285,000.00 with 51st and Oak, LLC, for the 51st & Brookside Improvements project; approving recommendations of the Arterial Street Impact Fee District H Committee; estimating and appropriating revenue in the amount of $433,211.00 in the Arterial Street Impact Fee Fund; estimating and appropriating revenue in the amount of $851,789.00 in the Capital Improvement Fund; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Kerrie Tyndall, City Manager's Office, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The City Council is currently considering an ordinance that would allocate $851,789 of additional city wide capital improvement f nds and $433,211 in Impact Fee District H fees for an important project in the Plaza area of Kansas City. The proposed ordinance would appropriate capital improvement funds and available street impact fees and authorize a cooperative agreement to reconstruct the intersection of 51st and Brookside Blvd in Kansas City. This reconstruction is part of a much larger redevelopment project that would build a new Whole Foods grocery store and mixed use (office and residential) tower that would be built on a parking lot south of 51St and Oak on the UMKC campus. As a part of this project, there will be significant structured parking and sewer relocation costs that elevate the costs of this particular project. Those costs are being borne by the developer without the use of public incentives. In order to accomplish the goal of building the project without incentives, the City was asked to support the costs of improvements to 51st and Brookside which will directly support the project by facilitating traffic flow and a safe connection for the Trolley Track Trail. It is anticipated that this Whole Foods store will be a significant sales tax generator and would generate enough sales tax revenue to repay the City’s expense in about two years. The resources to pay for this project are being generated by excess sales tax revenues collected during this fiscal year and no current projects in the five year plan would be impacted by this allocation. On 3/4/15, the Impact Fee District H Advisory Committee recommended allocating $433,211 for intersection improvements at 51st and Brookside.
