Declaring certain real property surplus to the City’s needs and authorizing the Director of the General Services Department to convey certain parcels to the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of Kansas City, Missouri (“LCRA”) and authorizing execution of related documents to continue development of the Beacon Hill project.

 

WHEREAS, the City Manager has determined on behalf of all City departments that the parcels of real property set out below are in excess to the needs of the City and no interest has been expressed by any City Department in retaining the land for public use; and

WHEREAS, these properties in the Beacon Hill project area have been identified for redevelopment by the City Manager and thus are surplus to the City’s needs; and

 

WHEREAS, on April 28, 2011, the City Council passed Second Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 110300, authorizing the City Manager to enter into a contract with the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, the Economic Development Corporation Charitable Fund and the EDC Loan Corporation for the management of assets to be transferred from the City’s former contractor, the Housing and Economic Development Financial Corporation, in part, for the continued development of the Beacon Hill project; and

 

WHEREAS, several parcels of real property have already been transferred to LCRA; and

 

WHEREAS, the parcels of real property set out below were not included in earlier conveyances as they were more recently acquired in City ownership and the development plan for these parcels has only recently been determined; and

 

WHEREAS, LCRA is a public body corporate and politic duly organized and existing pursuant to Section 99.330, RSMo, having among its powers the redevelopment of blighted areas and the power of eminent domain; and

 

WHEREAS, the parcels of real property set out below are situated within the Hospital Hill II Urban Renewal Area within which LCRA has the power of eminent domain; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 99.580, RSMo, (Supp 2011) of the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority Law provides, in pertinent part, that: “[f]or the purpose of aiding and cooperating in the planning, undertaking or carrying out of a land clearance project within the area in which it is authorized to act, any public body may, upon such terms, with reasonable consideration, as it may determine: (1) Dedicate, sell, convey or lease any of its interest in any property, or grant easements, licenses or any other rights or privileges therein to an authority,” and the City is such a “public body”; NOW, THEREFORE,

Section 1.
