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 City Council hereby finds that:

 

(a) Good cause has been shown for amendment of the Redevelopment Plan, and that the findings of the City Council in Ordinance No. 001638, 010360, 070412 and 090261 with respect to the Redevelopment Plan are not affected by the Fifth Amendment and apply equally to the Fifth Amendment, as amended;

 

(b) The Redevelopment Area described in the Redevelopment Plan is an economic development area and the following factors are hereby found to exist within the Redevelopment Area, to-wit:

 

(i) Lack of major roadways within the Redevelopment Area; and

 

(ii) Rugged topography (steep slopes, valleys, cliffs, etc.) which will increase the cost of adequate public infrastructure.

 

(c) The Redevelopment Area 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, and such fact is acknowledged by the Redeveloper in an affidavit included in the Redevelopment Plan.

 

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

 

(e) 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) The estimated dates of completion of the respective Redevelopment Projects and retirement of obligations incurred to finance Redevelopment Project Costs, have been stated in the Redevelopment Plan, as amended, and are not more than 23 years from the adoption of any ordinance approving a Redevelopment Project within the Redevelopment Area, as amended;

 

(g) The Redevelopment Plan includes a plan for relocation assistance for businesses and residences;

 

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

 

(i) The Fifth Amendment, as amended, 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 Parvin Road Corridor Account of the Special Allocation 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.
