Crestridge Senior Housing Project (1900 x 701)
The staff report of May 3, 2005 recommended that Council approve the Professional Services Agreement between the City Redevelopment Agency and Rosenow Spevacek Group, Inc.
Executive Director Evans advised Council that the Crestridge Senior Housing project appeared to be moving forward; noted that John Llaing Homes had been identified as the developer of this project; that the developer was willing to provide a site for a senior center; and that the developer would include an affordable element as part of this senior housing project. Once these issues were solidified, he advised Council that the City would need to be in a position to evaluate the developerís project determine how much would be owed and/or what the City would contribute to the project. He pointed out that if the developer incorporated the Cityís property in to the project, the developer would need to provide some type of compensation to the City in return. He noted that the recommended consulting firm would assist the City in evaluating the financial aspects of what was eventually proposed for this project.
Highlighting Page 2, Member Gardiner expressed his desire to make it clear that there was no pre-agreement by the City approving this consultant agreement to make this land available or to commit some Redevelopment Agency Housing Set-Aside Funds to this project.
Member Long concurred with Executive Director Evanís explanation and noted that that the qualifications expressed by Member Gardiner were included in staff report.
Member Gardiner moved, seconded by Member Stern, to approve the staff recommendation. There being no objection, Vice-Chairman Wolowicz so ordered.
The meeting was adjourned at 11:13 P.M.
