CARVER HEIGHTS/MONTCLAIR AREA
COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY
Staff recommends the Carver Heights/Montclair Area Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Commission execute an amended lease agreement with the West Leesburg Community Development Corporation for leasing an office facility owned by the CRA at 706 Beecher Street.
The West Leesburg Community Development Corporation (WLCDC) is a non-profit organization that functions within the City of Leesburg, specifically in the Carver Heights/Montclair Area. The WLCDC acts as an advisory group consisting of residents, businesses, and stakeholders to improve and revitalize the West Leesburg community as a whole. Due to significant budget reduction in the Carver CRA Fiscal Year 2011/12 budget, an amendment to the original lease agreement executed on September 28, 2009 is required. The amendment includes Section 5-Utilities and Equipment (Page 3) and Section 8-Maintenance (Page 5). Effective October 10, 2011, the CRA will no longer assume funding responsibility for the subject sections of the lease agreement. WLCDC will assume funding responsibility for the utilities and maintenance of the office complex.
1. Authorize an amended lease agreement between the CRA and the West Leesburg C.D.C. or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The fiscal impact is the Lessee pays $10.00/ per year payment for the use and occupancy of the subject property. This change will result in savings for the Caver Heights CRA, a budget adjustment will be processed to remove the $3,800 utility budget that was included in FY 11-12.
