Staff Summary: The purpose of this resolution is to begin the process to amend our Redevelopment Project Area No. 2 in order to continue to energize Carson City's aging shopping centers and re-tenant vacant big box buildings. The Redevelopment Authority's long-term strategy employs a public and private partnership approach that will retain and enhance additional commercial activity in this area. The addition of these properties to the current Project Area No. 2 is consistent with the annual goals and objectives of the Carson City Board of Supervisors in as much as this action facilitates efforts to revitalize Carson City's aging shopping to help turn them into economic success stories and sales tax generating engines.

B) Action to approve a redevelopment incentive to reimburse Mr. Dick Campagni, President of Carson City Toyota, $500,000 over a seven-year period, from tax increment produced in the project area, to help defer costs associated with on-site mitigation analysis and improvements related to the new Carson Toyota Store's unforeseen increases of approximately $1,000,000 in the project's construction budget.

Staff Summary: Mr. Campagni has had to adjust his costs to prepare his site in accordance with the new Toyota Image II USA standards.

The plans had several areas that concerned Toyota (through Gensler), most significant being the separation of the showroom and the service shop. The site must be adjusted to accommodate the severe change in grade or all future plans will be rejected. These adjustments include retaining walls for the site and the building, grade beams, underground retention, water proofing, civil, architectural and structural design.
