Section 3. In accordance with the recommendations of the Commission as set forth in the Resolution, the City Council hereby finds that:

A.

B. The Redevelopment Area qualifies as a Conservation Area as evidenced by the following factors:

 

The Redevelopment Area described in the Amendment has not been subject to growth and development through investment by private enterprise and would not reasonably be anticipated to be redeveloped without the adoption of the Amendment, all as certified to by proposed Redevelopers; all of the structures in the expanded area were constructed more than 35 years ago and conditions such as dilapidation, functionally obsolete structures, deterioration, substandard code compliance, excessive vacancies, excessive coverage and deleterious land use continue to exist.

F. The Amendment includes a plan for relocation assistance for businesses and residences.

 

G. A cost-benefit analysis showing the impact of the 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 Amendment does not include the initial development or redevelopment of any gambling establishment.

 

Section 4.

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

 

Section 5. The City Council approves the pledge of all funds that are deposited into the 22nd & Main Tax Increment Financing Plan Account of the Special Allocation Fund to the payment of Redevelopment Project Costs within the Redevelopment Area and authorizes the Commission to pledge such funds on its behalf.
