Agenda Title:

18-768 - A resolution authorizing the City Manager to sign the petition to include property in the Englewood Community Improvement District.

Staff recommends approval
Executive Summary:

This Resolution would authorize the City Manager to sign, on behalf of the City, a Petition to form a Community Improvement District in Englewood which would include City-owned property, including the former CMHS Building at 10901 E. Winner Road.

For several months, a group of property owners in Englewood have been working on the development of a petition to present to the City Council requesting the formation of the Englewood Community Improvement District.  The CID is being proposed to facilitate public and private improvements and promote economic development in Englewood. Property owners are currently circulating a petition, which must be signed by a majority of property owners, both per capita and by total assessed valuation, prior to submission of the Petition to the City pursuant to the Missouri Community Improvement District Act. The proposed boundaries of the District includes City street right-of-way as well as the City-owned property formerly known as the CMHS Building at 10901 E. Winner Road.  The Englewood property owners are asking the City to sign the petition as a property owner, and the proposed Resolution would authorize the City Manager to sign on behalf of the City. 

Emergency Justification:


Fiscal Impact:

There would be no direct cost to the City resulting from formation of the District. To the contrary, a revitalized Englewood could conceivably provide a positive fiscal impact in future.
