Whereas, The intent of this resolution is to comply with the requirements of Wis. Stat. Sec. 229.50(1)(a)(1)(a)-(e), with respect to the financing of the Expansion Project; and

 

Whereas, The passage of this resolution is one of the preconditions which must be satisfied in order that the District can obtain the State of Wisconsin’s moral obligation pledge, which is intended to provide credit enhancement for the bonds that are sold to finance the Expansion Project  which the District intends to construct (“Bonds”); and

 

Whereas, As detailed in the report of HVS (“HVS Report”) dated January 9, 2020 and attached to this Common Council file, the Expansion Project of the Exposition Center includes an exposition hall of at least 100,000 square feet; and

 

Whereas, As detailed in the HVS Report, the Exposition Center is reasonably projected to support at least 2,000 full time equivalent jobs; and

 

Whereas, As detailed in the HVS Report, the Exposition Center is reasonably projected to stimulate at least $6,500,000,000 in total spending in the state over the 30-year period beginning on the date on which the Bonds are issued; and

 

Whereas, As detailed in the HVS Report, the Exposition Center is reasonably projected to attract at least 50,000 out-of-state visitors annually; and

 

Whereas, As detailed in the HVS Report, the Exposition Center is reasonably projected to generate at least $150,000,000 of incremental state income, franchise and sales tax revenues over the 30-year period beginning on the date on which the Bonds are issued; now, therefore, be it
