The application proposed rezoning the site to UR and approving a development plan which also serves as the preliminary plat. The applicant has received approval of a 353 Tax Abatement Plan and is in the process of applying for a PIEA plan. The plan proposes 23 buildings with a total 60 units for a low-income senior housing development. The project is receiving funding from the Missouri Housing Development Corporation. The plan also shows a 9.60 acre lot being subdivided from the larger existing parcel. The remaining land is shown as a tract with no proposed development – this is to be revised to be shown as Lot 2 which can be subdivided in the future. Building types range from two units to four units per building. The plan also proposes a club house. The site plan proposes a series of groups of buildings surrounding a communal green space. These groups are surrounded by parking areas and drive-aisles. A total of 124 parking spaces are proposed – 50 of which will be accessible parking spaces. The green spaces and building groups are connected with a series of sidewalks. The clubhouse is located at the south end of the site. The plan proposed flattening the site through grading with the sides sloping down toward the property lines. Storm water detention basins would be located on the north and west sides of the lot. Preferably grading would be limited and the site would work with existing contours.

RESOLUTION - Authorizing the City Manager to execute a First Amendment of Development Agreement with HRB Tax Group, Inc., for the purpose of extending the time by which HRB Tax Group, Inc., must close should it exercise an option to purchase from the City certain real property in the Power & Light District; and authorizing the City Manager to execute further amendments in connection therewith.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION"
Brian Rabineau, Law Department, gave the staff report on the Resolution. The City owns the air rights above the block to the immediate west of HRB Tax Group, Inc.'s World Headquarters.  (K.C. Live, Block 124, Unit 3)  During the initial build-out of the Power & Light District, the foundation on that block was constructed to support a 250,000-350,000 square foot office building.  HRB currently leases that property from the City with an option to purchase that would have expired on or about October 25, 2017. HRB timely exercised its option on or about September 22, 2017.   The existing development agreement requires HRB to close on the purchase of the property within sixty (60) days. A project of the magnitude contemplated by the HRB Development Agreement will take significant time to finalize and finance, and the agreements impacting development in the Power & Light District are such that the City and HRB believe closing within sixty (60) days is neither practical nor possible. This amendment will allow HRB up to three (3) years to develop a viable project and close on the purchase of the property. Should that not occur, the City would resume control over the property and be entitled to solicit proposals from third parties for its development. This amendment will also authorize the City Manager to execute further amendments to the development agreement as may be necessary in connection with the development of the property.

Accepting the recommendations of the Tax Increment Financing Commission as to the Ninth Amendment to the North Oak Tax Increment Financing Plan; and approving the Ninth Amendment to the North Oak Tax Increment Financing Plan.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Cathleen Flournoy, Economic Development Corporation (EDC), gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The Ninth Amendment provides for the addition of guidelines for the North Oak Façade and Site Program and the North Oak Housing Program and clarifies the description of the improvements to the former YMCA recreational facility, specifically providing for demolition of the building. The former YMCA located at 1101 NE 47th Street, Kansas City, Missouri will be acquired by the City or its designee and used for such community purposes determined by the City. The building will be demolished and the pool will be renovated. A bathhouse will be constructed. The City may incorporate and implement additional amenities and improvements to service the community, provided the reimbursable redevelopment project costs related to such additional amenities and improvements do not exceed the budgeted amount. The North Oak Façade and Site Program was created to incentivize investment within the corridor to promote physical improvements that will increase the aesthetic appeal and attract new businesses. The North Oak Housing Program promotes and supports the rehabilitation of single family homes within the Redevelopment Area.
