Explanation
BACKGROUND: Ordinance 0333-2018 authorized the Director of the Department of Development to transfer approximately 3.50+/- acres of land, located on the east side of Wheatland Ave to Wheatland Crossing II Limited Partnership, a subsidiary of the Woda Group. The Woda Group received Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) to construct Wheatland Crossing II, a 51-unit housing complex on the site, for families at a mix of income levels. This project is a second phase to a 42-unit senior housing complex finished in 2018. This Ordinance will authorize the Director of Development to execute a temporary easement on the residual City owned land to allow the developer to install a drainage swale to meet storm water requirements. The swale will be installed along the northern boundary of the residual City land, maintained by the developer, be approximately 30’ in width, and will be removed as the remainder of the site is developed.

FISCAL IMPACT: No fiscal impact.

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency action is requested to enable the City to immediately grant the easement to allow the project to receive the necessary permits.
