WHEREAS, Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council wishes to take title to these additional 23 parcels located within the Third District; and

 

WHEREAS, the Mayor and Council wish to encourage the maintenance of these properties until they are put to better use, and encourage one redevelopment and revitalization of neighborhoods in the Third District; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposed uses are determined to be of value to the City and likely to combat the occurrence of blight in the urban core; and
