Recommendations:

Passage of Resolution recommended

Executive Summary:

This Resolution would replace Resolution 6398 which established the Independence Economic Development and Incentives Commission in order to clarify and streamline the process of review by the Commission of development incentive requests.
Background:

The City Council passed Resolution 6398 to create the Independence Economic Development and Incentives Commission, which includes representatives from various taxing jurisdictions.  The purpose of the Commission is to consider requests for economic development incentives and make recommendations to the City Council.  In the weeks since passage of Resolution 6398, it has become evident that it would be advisable to amend certain sections of the Resolution to clarify and streamline the process.  These include adding provisions for public meetings in lieu of duplicative public hearings, and deleting from the list of incentives those, such as state programs, which do not come before the Council.
