(a) Good cause has been shown for amendment of the Redevelopment Plan, and that the findings of the City Council in Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 960307 and Ordinance No. 011203 with respect to the Redevelopment Plan are not affected by the Second Amendment and apply equally to the Second Amendment;

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 6. 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 Barry Towne 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.
