RESOLUTION NO. 090078

 

Expressing the support of the Council for the remediation of blight by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, in the Armour Gillham PIEA Area, including the relocation of utility lines; and directing the City Manager to assist in this effort.

 

WHEREAS, the City Council passed Ordinance No. 060105 finding that a blighted, unsanitary and undeveloped industrial area exists in an area generally located on the north side of Armour Boulevard between Warwick Street on the west and just east of Gillham Road on the east (Armour Gillham PIEA or Plan Area) and approved a general plan for its redevelopment (General Development Plan) as prepared by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority of Kansas City, Missouri (Authority); and

 

WHEREAS, in response to the solicitation of the Authority, Armour Boulevard, L.L.C. (Developer) submitted an industrial development contract proposal to redevelop properties within the Plan Area, including Yankee Hill Apartments, Clyde Manor, Bellerive, Park Central Apartments, 3411 Gillham Apartments, and also including public improvements and accessory uses related to the redevelopment of the properties (hereafter, the Project); and

 

WHEREAS, after due consideration of all proposals and the financial and legal ability of prospective developers to carry out proposals to develop projects in the Plan Area, on December 1, 2006, the Authority adopted Resolution No. 1166 approving the industrial development contract proposal of Armour Boulevard, L.L.C. for development of the project; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council found that the overhead utility lines in the Plan Area were a blighting condition; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council acknowledges that Missouri case law supports the position that the costs of relocation of utility lines which contribute to blight be borne by the utility company; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the Council hereby expresses its support for the remediation of blight by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, in the Armour Gillham PIEA Area, including the relocation of utility lines, at the expense of the utility company. The City Manager is hereby directed to assist the Authority in this effort.
