WHEREAS, the City Council, by its passage of a series of ordinances, has amended the Redevelopment Plan on numerous occasions since it was first approved; and


WHEREAS, the Twelfth Amendment modifies certain line items in the budget of Redevelopment Project Costs, but leaves the total budget unchanged, and modifies the Sources and Uses; NOW, THEREFORE,
