CARVER HEIGHTS/MONTCLAIR AREA

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AGENCY

 

AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 28, 2009

 

From:                          Christopher T. Edwards, CRA Coordinator

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing acquisition of a vacant lot on Nebraska Avenue for the Carver Heights/ Montclair Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval to execute a Purchase and Sales Contract with Abraham Conner for the purpose of purchasing vacant land for redevelopment.  

 

Analysis:

The subject property includes one vacant lot located on Nebraska Avenue.  The vacant lot is part of an acquisition effort to attract new residential development within the CRA.  Acquisition of the subject property is imperative for residential development that would increase the overall taxable value of the Carver Heights & Vicinity CRA.

 

The catalyst for the creation of the CRA was to revitalize and beautify the area.  The acquisition of the subject property together with adjacent parcels will position the CRA to be more prepared to offer “shovel ready” property when attempting to attract professional residential developers.  Therefore, with the purchase of this property the CRA can offer single family lots for affordable housing.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution to execute the Contract for Sales and Purchase between the CRA and Abraham Conner or;

2.  Such alternative action as the CRA Board may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The total purchase price pursuant to the contract is $10,500.
