Section 2. All terms used in this ordinance, not otherwise defined herein, shall be construed as defined in Section 99.800 to 99.865 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri, as amended (the Act).

 

Section 3. The Council hereby finds that:

 

(a) Good cause has been shown for amendment of the Redevelopment Plan, and that the findings of the Council in Ordinance No. 921351, 060100, and 060609 with respect to the Redevelopment Plan are not affected by the Third Amendment and apply equally to the Third Amendment;

 

(b) The Redevelopment Area, as amended, is a conservation area, as a whole, and has not been subject to growth and development through investment by private enterprise and would not reasonably be anticipated to be developed without the adoption of the Redevelopment Plan, as amended, and the Second Amendment; the factors causing it to be a conservation area are deterioration; dilapidation; abandonment; excessive vacancies; structures below minimum code requirements; lack of ventilation, light or sanitary features; and depreciation of physical maintenance;

 

(c) The Redevelopment Plan, as amended, confirms to the comprehensive plan for the development of the City as a whole;

 

(d) The areas selected for Redevelopment Projects include only those parcels of real property and improvements therein which will be directly and substantially benefited by the Redevelopment Project improvements;

(f) A plan has been developed for relocation assistance for businesses and residences;

 

(g) A cost benefit analysis showing the impact of the Third Amendment on each taxing district which is at least partially within the boundaries of the Redevelopment Area has been prepared in accordance with the Act;

 

(h) The Third Amendment does not include the initial development or redevelopment of any gambling establishment.

Any obligations issued to finance Redevelopment Project Costs shall contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to Sections 99.800 and 99.865, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and of the regularity of their issuance.

 

Section 5. Pursuant to the provisions of the Redevelopment Plan, as amended the City Council approves the pledge of all funds generated from Redevelopment Projects that are deposited into the Twelfth and Wyandotte Account of the Special Association Fund to the payment of Redevelopment Project Costs within the Redevelopment Area, as amended, and authorizes the Commission to pledge such funds on its behalf.

 

Section 6. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding sections of this ordinance and in accordance with the customary policies and procedures of the City relating to its condemnation processes, no final order for condemnation of any property for any project within the Twelfth and Wyandotte Tax Increment Financing Plan shall be entered unless and until such time as any necessary private third-party or public financing for the construction of such project and the parking garage to be owned by the City as called for in the plan (Project No. 2(a)) has closed and proceeds from such financing are available for constructing such project and/or such parking garage.
