COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

 

AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           October 10, 2011

 

From:                          Chris Edwards, Community Redevelopment Coordinator/Project Manager  

           

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an amended lease agreement between the Carver Heights. Montclair Area Community Redevelopment Agency and the West Leesburg Community Development Corporation

 

Staff Recommendation:

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.

 

Analysis:

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.

 

Options:

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

 

Fiscal Impact

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.
