Explanation
BACKGROUND: The City of Columbus, in partnership with The Ohio State University Medical Center and the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority, has substantial interest in and are committed to the vision of enhancing the quality of life on the near east side of Columbus by creating a healthy, financially and environmentally sustainable, community where residents have access to safe and affordable housing, quality healthcare, and educational and employment opportunities.

The parties have agreed to work together in order to facilitate that vision: The Partners Achieving Community Transformation (PACT). The principal goal of PACT is to develop a community master plan through the services of a master planning entity aided by the input of the PACT governance structure, advisory committee and sub-committees.

The Ohio State University Medical Center has agreed to undertake the lead responsibility for managing the operations of PACT and the stewardship of its economic resources. The cost of such management requires financial contributions.

Ordinance Number 2318-2013 authorized the amendment of the Memorandum of Understanding to reflect an annual payment of $200,000 instead of annual payment of $100,000 provided in 2011 and 2012.

Payments of $100,000 were made in 2011 and 2012. A payment of $200,000 was made in 2013, 2014, and 2015. A payment of $250,000 was made in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

A payment of $200,000 is required per the Memorandum of Understanding.

Emergency action is requested to allow The Ohio State University Medical Center to continue to perform the work outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding for the preservation of public health, peace, prosperity and safety of the east side community.

FISCAL IMPACT: $200,000 has been allocated from the 2019 General Fund Budget for this purpose.
