The PPP process makes possible the completion of projects that would be impossible using more traditional methods of economic development. The benefits of the PPP process include continued public sector leadership, on-going monitoring and nurturing of complex projects, a clear and open public process that is consistent with the community's expressed goals, collaborative relationships and eventually, successful projects. John Stainback, a highly recognized and respected consultant with a vast amount of proven expertise and experience will assist the Redevelopment Authority to institute a process to place Carson City in a position of strength with potential private developers.

Staff Summary: City Management Services is actively negotiating with several national sporting goods retailers to lease space in his building, the former Wal-Mart, in the Southgate Shopping Center. Adding a quality sporting goods retailer to the critical mix will balance the retail amenities within the Center and yield the highest productivity levels and sales tax capture for Carson City. To fill the gap between the market lease rate needed by City Management Services to satisfy development financing requirements and the tenant=s lease expectations in an aging shopping center and a second generation, blighted building, the Redevelopment Authority has the opportunity to reimburse a portion of new sales tax to the property owner to ensure this highly productive retail occupancy.

E) Action to approve the Owner Participation Agreement with City Management Services, owner Robert Rothe, doing business as Carson Southgate, LLC, to provide financial assistance on a reimbursement basis for the rehabilitation of the vacant, blighted former Wal-Mart building in the Southgate Shopping Center to allow for the occupancy of a 70,000 square-foot Burlington Coat Factory.

On August 16, 2007, the Redevelopment Authority determined that this project would not be feasible without a redevelopment incentive and that the incentive is consistent with the goals of its Redevelopment Plan and NRS Chapter 279, the Redevelopment of Communities. The Authority directed staff to negotiate and submit for final approval an owner participation agreement that secures the Redevelopment Authority=s investment in the project with a second position on the property, a ten-year, declining lien, and a go-dark provision specific to the occupancy of Burlington Coat Factory.

City Manager

A) Action to authorize the use of economic development funds in an amount not to exceed $240,000, to cure an impending default on a 2004 loan made to the Brewery Arts Center by Wells Fargo for the purchase of the Brewery Arts Center=s Performance Hall, address 501 West King Street, APN's 003-206-01 and 003-206-02, and discussion and possible action regarding the current financial status of the Brewery Arts Center.

Staff Summary: Carson City currently has the second deed of trust on the BAC's Performance Hall, formerly St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church. This second gives the City the ability to exercise a remedy to cure any notice of breach and default and election to sell relating to any financial obligations incurred by the BAC that have been secured by the Performance Hall property. In 2004, the BAC entered into a Revolving Credit Deed of Trust Security Agreement with Wells Fargo in the amount of 200,000. In December of 2006, Wells Fargo provided an Aextension notice@ to the BAC until March of 2007. On August 7, 2007, Wells Fargo notified the City of the Notice of Default relating to the BAC's failure to pay in full the loan's principal, late charges, interest, taxes, attorney fees and miscellaneous fees incurred. By curing this unfortunate default, the City would own this property for perpetuity and be able to ensure its use for civic purposes on behalf of the citizens of Carson City. The value of the property far exceeds the cost to cure.
