5.1 For Possible Action: To approve the expenditure of up to $23,500 for façade improvements to the building located at 206-210 N. Carson Street, within Redevelopment Area No. 1. (Lee Plemel, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Staff Summary: The Redevelopment Authority approved a façade improvement program to assist property owners within the Redevelopment District with improving the exterior appearance of their buildings. The City may match up to 50% of the total cost of the façade improvements. The RACC has approved eight façade improvement applications previously, and $69,454 remains available for the Façade Improvement Program.
5.2 For Possible Action: To make recommendations to the Redevelopment Authority regarding possible amendments to the Redevelopment Façade Improvement Program, Resolution No. 2016-RAR-2 and 2016-R-3, to modify project bidding requirements. (Lee Plemel, email@example.com).
Staff Summary: The current Redevelopment Façade Improvement Program requires that applicants obtain a minimum of three bids for all proposed work. Due to various factors, applicants who have been awarded funds have had difficulty getting three bids. The RACC may recommend alternative methods for complying with the intent of the bid requirements.
5.3 For Possible Action: To provide recommendations to the Redevelopment Authority regarding the use of undesignated Redevelopment funds. (Lee Plemel, firstname.lastname@example.org).

No action may be taken on a matter raised under public comment unless the item has been specifically included on the agenda as an item upon which action may be taken. Comments may be limited to three minutes per person or topic at the discretion of the Chair in order to facilitate the meeting.
