COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

 

 

AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           January 24, 2011

 

From:                          Christopher T. Edwards, Community Redevelopment Coordinator

 

Subject:                      Resolution approving acquisition of a residential parcel at 2355 Mispah Avenue for the Carver Heights/ Montclair Area Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends the CRA approval to execute a Purchase and Sales Contract between the CRA and Adrienne Martin for redevelopment of the residential parcel.

 

Analysis:

The subject property includes a residential parcel at 2355 Mispah Avenue.  Acquisition of the subject property is an effort to attract new residential development imperative for residential development, which will 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 Adrienne Martin; or

  1. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact

The total purchase price pursuant to the contract is $9,000 which is available from the 2008 Note and included in the fiscal year 2009-10 budget (Land Purchases) and subject to Commission approval, will be rolled to fiscal year 2010-11.
