SUMMARY:

                                          

The adopted Westside Community Redevelopment Plan and approved Fiscal Year 2021 Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Work Plan identifies affordable housing redevelopment as a key redevelopment activity.

 

Acquisition of the property located at 2300 West Jackson Street will support the CRA and City’s affordable housing objectives, under the 500 homes in 5 years initiative, by securing land to be used for future affordable housing redevelopment.

 

A fair market value appraisal was performed on this property by an independent MAI certified appraiser. The appraised value was $8,000. The seller’s asking price is $13,230.87, which includes the cost of litigation to clear the title so that the CRA can obtain a warranty deed against other creditors. Due to current redevelopment and market trends, and the dire need to acquire property for affordable housing, an offer has been made to the seller in the amount of the asking price. The seller has accepted the offer.

 

A copy of the purchase agreement and property appraisal are attached.
