Staff Summary: Both Carson Gaming, LLC and Carson City partnered in absorbing the costs associated with the expedited reconstruction and substantial improvements made by the developer to the frontage of properties on South Curry Street. This street improvement project has had a positive regional economic impact to numerous properties both south and north of Koontz Lane. The Redevelopment Authority's contribution to this project is the agreed upon, one payment total of $375,000, due to Carson Gaming, LLC at the beginning of FY 2009. The Redevelopment Authority will make the reimbursement within 30 days following the beginning of the upcoming fiscal year that commences July 1, 2008.

Staff Summary: Doppelgangers Bar & Grill is the outstanding brewpub at former Lucky Spur property. On May 20, 2008, the Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee unanimously approved a financial incentive request of $100,000 made by the owner of Doppelgangers Bar & Grill, Alan Adams, to assist with his multi-million dollar improvement project at the former Lucky Spur. Last year, the RDA received its reimbursement of $80,000 associated with the original $100,000 incentive awarded for the renovation of the property. Mr. Adams' latest request for incentive funding is for additional improvements to the property. The continued renovation and improvement of this important Carson City building adds value to this entire district and helps to reinvigorate the entire area. In fact, the RDA and Mr. Adams' representatives will soon begin discussions to conceptualize, plan for, and execute a mixed-use project across the street at the former Stewart Title building.

D) Action to accept the Redevelopment Authority Citizen Committee's (RACC) recommendation to spend $60,000 in unspent bond proceeds on a public improvement project specifically to build a portable stage and family activities plaza enhancements that will enrich Downtown event coordination.

Staff Summary: The Redevelopment Authority (RDA) recently asked for certain funding projects to respond to immediate development opportunities and have a significant impact.

E) Staff report on Downtown events coordination for 2008-09.

Staff Summary: Staff will report to the Redevelopment Authority regarding events coordination activities in the Downtown for this summer and fall.

F) Action to accept the Redevelopment Authority Citizen Committee's (RACC) recommendation to budget $200,000 of the Redevelopment Authority's unspent bond proceeds for streetscape projects, with the requirement that the RACC bring each project's design and cost to the Redevelopment Authority for approval.

Staff Summary: The Redevelopment Authority (RDA) recently asked for certain funding projects for consideration, specifically Mayor Teixeira=s desire to spend some bond proceed funds on streetscape improvements, but only if the proposed projects respond to immediate development opportunities and have a significant impact. Thus, the Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee is asking the Redevelopment Authority to consider allowing the RACC to budget $200,000 of the remaining bond proceeds for a set of physical improvement projects in 2008-2009 in the Downtown. In addition, the adjoining property owners will be asked to help pay for improvement projects that directly advance the value of their property. The street frontage improvements will include storm drainage mitigation & gateway streetscape, lighting, engineering & construction management. The costs estimate will depend on final bids. In the next few months, the RACC will identify and prioritize its list of essential projects and bring these projects to the Redevelopment Authority for approval. Examples of possible physical improvement projects include Third Street, Telegraph Square, East Telegraph, and Stewart and Musser in front of D'Vine Wine.
