NEW BUSINESS

Resolution RDA 2009-002 – Approving the First Amendment to the Existing Owner Participation Agreement with Valley Vista Senior Housing, L.P. for the Valley Vista Senior Housing Project.

Deputy Executive Director Marc Fontes stated the Amendment to the Owner Participation Agreement (OPA) would change the existing allocations of the Redevelopment Agency’s (RDA) financial contribution to the project, allow for a limited time subordination of the RDA loan for additional interim financing if needed, and authorize the Executive Director to approve non-monetary minor amendments to the OPA. The existing total financial commitment from the RDA to the project will remain the same.  The new allocation provides more funding for predevelopment costs and less for site acquisition and conditions of approval.

Chair Hudson requested a proposed completion schedule for the various phases of the project.

Mbr. Livingstone’s motion to adopt Resolution RDA 2009-002 was seconded by Mbr. Wilson and approved 4-0.  Mbr. Perkins was absent.
