NSP3/HABITAT/FIRSTTIME HOMEBUYER

Laura Raygoza NSP Coordinator reported our NSP expenditure deadline is coming up on March 14, 2014. The Redevelopment Department is working on disposition of properties that have been built and are currently working on the properties that are under construction. Laura offered a spread sheet that showed 9 acquired properties, 4 donated to Habitat, 4 were built for FTHB. One of the properties, 611
East Broadway has a side lot disposition. The better option was to dispose to the adjacent homeowner rather than building on the lot itself. The spreadsheet also detailed what has been spent. There is a balance of $248,313.72 and the Redevelopment Department is working on getting funds expended before the deadline. In purchasing properties, the difficulty is identifying owners of these properties.

RIVERWALK

Commissioner O'Dell moved that the meeting be adjourned and Commissioner Pingel seconded­;
meeting adjourned at 7:15p.m.
