WHEREAS, on March 19, 1994, the City Council passed Ordinance No. 940564, wherein the City Council approved the Redevelopment Plan, designated the area described therein as a Redevelopment Project Area and adopted tax increment financing; and

 

WHEREAS, on March 27, 2003, the City Council passed Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 030259 approving the First Amendment to the Redevelopment Plan; and

 

WHEREAS, on May 4, 2006, the City Council passed Ordinance No. 060470 approving the Second Amendment to the Redevelopment Plan; and

 

WHEREAS, said Commission has been duly constituted and its members appointed; and, after all proper notice was given, the Commission met in public hearing and after receiving the comments of all interested persons and taxing districts, closed said public hearing on January 11, 2007, and adopted Resolution 1-17-07, recommending to the City Council the approval of the Third Amendment to the Southtown Corridor/31st & Baltimore Tax Increment Financing Plan (the "Third Amendment"); and

 

WHEREAS, under the Third Amendment, the budget changes to the Project I Benefit Area leaving total reimbursable costs unchanged and the redevelopment area is expanded; and

 

WHEREAS, the Redevelopment Plan, as amended, is a comprehensive program intended to reduce or eliminate those conditions, the existence of which qualified the Redevelopment Area as a Conservation Area and enhance the tax base within the Redevelopment Area through the implementation of a number of separate Redevelopment Projects and the adoption of tax increment financing in each of the areas selected for such Redevelopment Projects; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council has determined that an advisory committee should be established to make recommendations on public improvements and further changes to the budget which do not impact the total budget should be made; NOW, THEREFORE,
