Authorizing the City Manager to enter into a contract with the Council of Development Finance Agencies in an amount not to exceed $350,000 to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the City of Kansas City's historic use of economic development incentives and the resulting impacts; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Kerrie Tyndall, Office of Economic Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. By resolution, the City Council directed the City Manager to develop a plan for the purposes of engaging a consultant to conduct a comprehensive study of economic development incentives. The study shall take into consideration the City's economic development objectives as established by Advance KC; Being able to evaluate the overall use of incentives is an important part of understanding the City's overall financial outlook and will inform future economic development policy direction. It will also increase transparency and accountability by establishing a process and system to capture, maintain, and report historic and future economic development project data which is readily accessible to policy makers and the public. As early investments in revitalization mature over the next three to eight years, many of the City's projects will fully return to the tax rolls, providing additional resources to its taxing jurisdictions and making this an ideal time to evaluate the use of incentive tools. In order to evaluate the impacts of incentive use, and determine outcomes, we need to understand when, where and how the City and other taxing jurisdictions will see, and have seen, the benefits of those early investments. A comprehensive evaluation of the City's historic use of incentives to-date is needed to provide a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the tools and inform future economic development incentive policy;
