Staff Recommendation: Staff recommends the CRA approval to execute a Purchase and Sales Contract between the CRA and Adrienne Martin., for redevelopment of (1) residential parcel.
The subject property includes (1) residential parcel, located at 2355 Mispah Avenue. The parcel 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.
1. Approve the resolution to execute the Contract for Sales and Purchase between the CRA and Adrienne Martin; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The total purchase price pursuant to the contract is $9,000
