Whereas, In accordance with Section 304-93-4-d of the MCO, the Project Plan for TID 68 and the Department of City Development (“DCD”) both estimate that the total tax incremental district expenditures will be $7,060,029 and the total authorized expenditures, after adoption of this resolution, will be $7,060,029, plus capitalized interest; and

 

Whereas, The City of Milwaukee (“City”), by adoption of Common Council File No. 191901 on April 14, 2020, entered into the Riverwalk Development Agreement (“Agreement”) dated July 14, 2020, with Admiral’s Wharf, LLC (“Developer”) and the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee (“RACM”); and

 

Whereas, The City, the Developer and RACM now desire to enter into a First Amendment to the Agreement to increase the funding amount for the construction of the riverwalk improvements at 234 South Water Street; and

 

Whereas, The City is willing to provide the Developer with $2,719,080 from TID 68 (Fifth Wart-First Place) to finance 70 percent of the eligible costs of constructing the Developer Riverwalk, 50 percent of costs of constructing the dockwall and 100 percent of the cost to construct the Public Access Improvement and replace the dockwall located on City property (the “Riverwalk Improvements”); now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the TID 68 expenditure limit is established at $7,060,029, plus capitalized interest; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the project costs related directly to promoting development consistent with the City’s Master Plan and with the purpose(s) for which the TID was created under Section 66.1105(4)(gm)4.a., Wisconsin Statutes; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the City Comptroller is directed to transfer the sum of $500,000, plus capitalized interest, from the Parent TID Account to Project Account No. TD0688000, raising the Project Account to $7,060,029, plus capitalized interest, for the purpose of providing funds necessary to implement the Project Plan; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the proper City officials are authorized to execute the First Amendment to the Riverwalk Development Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Common Council File; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the City Attorney’s Office, in cooperation with the Commissioner of DCD, is authorized to make such further minor modifications to said First Amendment that are consistent with the intent and purpose of this resolution and which are mutually acceptable to the City Attorney, the Commissioner of DCD, RACM and the Developer.
