Action to adopt a resolution to suspend indefinitely the current Redevelopment Incentive Program that provides individual grants for small, private redevelopment projects. (Joe McCarthy)

Staff Summary: On May 10, 2010, the Redevelopment Authority requested that staff return to the Redevelopment Authority with a recommendation to suspend indefinitely the current cash incentive program for small private redevelopment projects. The justifications for this moratorium on certain cash incentives include the Office of Business Development's staff reduction and the difficulty in processing and evaluating applications fairly, efficiently and timely. In addition, the City is creating a new business resource center along with a pressing need to husband tax increment to implement the City=s Downtown corridor vision.
