Explanation
BACKGROUND: The Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District (SID), a non-profit organization, has executed three, five year plans, since 2002, for the provision of cleaning, safety, marketing, and beautification and advocacy services in the core area of downtown Columbus. The Capital Crossroad Special Improvement District started a fourth, five year plan on January 1, 2017. The current Plan for Services will run through December 31, 2021. As part of the Plan for Services in 2012, the Development Department committed to providing a cooperative share of $100,000 per year to the Capital Crossroad Special Improvement District and the City of Columbus committed to providing an additional $90,000 for a business recruitment specialist to attract new retail businesses to downtown Columbus.

The City cooperative share will be combined with the property owners share to provide services within the SID boundaries. These services include: Environmental Maintenance, Supplemental Security, Promotions and Marketing, Member Services and Business Recruitment.

This legislation authorizes the Director of the Development Department to enter into an agreement with the Reauthorized Capital Crossroads SID to provide funding for services within the SID boundaries.

Emergency action is requested to allow the Reauthorized Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District to continue the services provided by the SID without interruption.

FISCAL IMPACT: The funding for this agreement has been allocated from the 2017 General Fund Operating Budget.
