Section 2. That all terms used in this Ordinance, not otherwise defined herein, shall have such meanings ascribed to them in the Act and in the Redevelopment Plan.

 

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

 

a. Good cause has been shown for the amendment of the Plan and that the findings of the Council in Ordinance Nos. 951016, 001035, 011653, 011688, 030632, 040665, 050316, 051321, and 110782 and Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 051116, with respect to the Redevelopment Plan are not affected by the Tenth Amendment and apply equally to the Tenth Amendment.

 

b.

d. The areas selected for Redevelopment Projects include only those parcels of real property and improvements thereon which will be directly and substantially benefited by the Redevelopment Project Improvements.

f. The Redevelopment Plan includes a plan for relocation assistance for businesses and residences.

 

g. A cost-benefit analysis showing the impact of the Redevelopment Plan on each taxing district which is at least partially within the boundaries of the Redevelopment Area has been prepared in accordance with the Act.

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. That the City Council approves the pledge of all funds generated from Redevelopment Projects that are deposited into the Summit 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.
