RESOLUTION NO. 010286

 

Declaring the intent of the Council to not approve any amendments to the Central Industrial District Industrial Development Plan of the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, which would provide for the approval of residential projects in the Central Industrial District Plan area and declaring the intent of the Council to not approve tax incentives through LCRA, TIF or Chapter 353 for residential projects in the West Bottoms area.

 

WHEREAS, the Central Industrial District Industrial Development Plan was approved by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, (PIEA) and was passed by the City Council through the passage of Ordinance No. 48892 on April 7, 1978; and

 

WHEREAS, the approved Central Industrial District Industrial Development Plan provides that "[p]roposed land uses within the project area shall be limited to private industrial development within the meaning of Section 100.310(9), RSMo (1969), as amended"; and

 

WHEREAS, in order for developers to use development incentives, including tax abatement and the power of eminent domain, provided by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority through Chapter 100, RSMo, for residential development projects, the currently approved Central Industrial District Industrial Development Plan would be required to be amended through the passage of an ordinance by the Council; and

 

WHEREAS, there are a number of owners of commercial and industrial businesses who are greatly concerned about allowing residential developments in the West Bottoms area and are particularly concerned that their properties will be condemned for residential developments and concerned with tax incentives being given to residential developers by the Council; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council does not believe it is appropriate to provide tax incentives or other development incentives through PIEA, the Tax Increment Financing Commission, the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority or through Chapter 353 plans approved by the City Council for residential development projects in the West Bottoms area;

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that if residential housing is permitted to occur in the West Bottoms area it should be market rate; primarily, if not exclusively, involve the conversion of warehouse buildings to loft apartments; be completed without any City development incentives, including the use of the power of eminent domain and any tax abatement or incentives, controlled by the City Council; and be consistent and in conformance with the City's Central Industrial District Area Plan; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Council hereby declares its intent to not approve any amendments to the Central Industrial District Industrial Development Plan of the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, which would provide for the approval of residential projects in the Central Industrial District Plan area and its intent to not approve tax incentives through LCRA, TIF or Chapter 353 for residential projects in the West Bottoms area.
