Section A. That Chapter 80, Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, commonly known as the Zoning Ordinance, is hereby amended by repealing Sections 80-170, Purpose and intent of URD district, 80-171, Conditions for establishment of URD district, 80-172, Application for establishment of URD district, and 80-176, Amendments to development plan for URD district, and enacting in lieu thereof new sections of like numbers and subject matters, to read as follows:

 

Sec. 80-170. Purpose and intent of URD district (urban redevelopment district).

 

(a) The purpose of the urban redevelopment district is to encourage and accommodate development and redevelopment of underdeveloped and blighted sections of the city and to encourage the latitude and flexibility in design to ensure the stated purposes of a redevelopment plan.

 

(b) Planned districts are intended to facilitate the following development objectives:

 

(1) Encouragement of a more efficient and effective relationship among land use activities.

 

(2) Preservation and enhancement of natural phenomena and or architecturally significant features.

 

(3) Enhancement of redevelopment areas to accommodate effective redevelopment.

 

(4) Assurance of a redevelopment project that will integrate full development of the property and maintain harmonious uses within and without the district.

 

Sec. 80-171. Conditions for establishment of URD district.

 

a. No urban redevelopment district shall be established unless and until a property has been designated as a blighted area, a conservation area, or an economic development area and a redevelopment plan has been approved by the City Council which includes the property subject to the rezoning as a part thereof. However, designation of a blighted area, a conservation area, or an economic development area and approval of a redevelopment plan may occur simultaneously with the rezoning to district URD which is in conformance with a redevelopment plan approved pursuant to a declaration of a blighted area, a conservation area, or an economic development area. For purposes of this district, the declaration of a blighted area, conservation area, or an economic development area shall be pursuant to the provisions of the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Law (RSMo 99.300), Real Property Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment (RSMo 99.800), Urban Redevelopment Corporations Law (RSMo ch. 353) or Planned Industrial Expansion Authority (RSMo 100.300). Further, the redevelopment plan as referenced in this section shall be that plan required by such statutory sections.

 

b. An application for an urban redevelopment district under the declaration as a blighted area, a conservation area or an economic development area under the Real Property Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment Act may only be filed with the City after the Tax Increment Financing Commission has provided the 45 day notice of public hearing provided for under Section 99.830.3, RSMo. The City Plan Commission shall conduct a public hearing on the application for an urban redevelopment district but shall not vote on said application until a recommendation has been made to the City Council from the Tax Increment Financing Commission regarding approval of the Tax Increment Financing Plan or the designation of a developer to implement a redevelopment plan affecting the property.

 

Sec. 80-172. Application for establishment of URD district.

 

(a) Any governmental agency or corporation having the power of eminent domain or an owner or owners of assembled properties or successors in interest or designated developers or an applicant for designation as a developer under Section 99.800, RSMo, may submit an application for an urban redevelopment district subject to the procedure set forth in Sections 80-350 and 80-360.

(b) If any development plan covering all or a portion of the land so rezoned to district URD shall be abandoned, or if any stage thereof shall not be completed within the time therein provided and is no longer feasible for the proposed development, or if the declaration of a blighted area, a conservation area, or an economic development area required by Section 80-171 is declared null and void by any court of competent jurisdiction, the director of city development may recommend that the area be rezoned to its former or other appropriate classification.
