ADMINISTRATOR S REPORT

Tagged Passions:administrator

Freedom Blast Recognized members of the Recreation Department and the Events Staff stating Freedom Blast is a yearlong planning process. Its important to note while we bring 20,000 or so residents and visitors downtown for the event as you can see from their monthly report they plan this all year long and do everything else that we do to provide recreation facilities and programing to our community. We are very, very proud of this group of folks they do an excellent job for us.

Monthly Activity Reports The purpose of us bringing the monthly reports to you on a periodic basis is for us to inquire of you if you have any recommendations or suggestions of ways we can improve that information. We are always looking to make sure we are providing you good, timely, useful information in those monthly reports. If you have suggestions or recommendations of things we can add or ways we can improve the reports please let us know.

Christmas Decorations and Banner Testing You will notice on Wade Hampton Blvd that we are testing new banners and Christmas decorations, we are doing that because those are new fixtures and we never use them for Christmas decorations before that have a different layout and height and we needed to do some testing in that area. You will see a different selection of decorations while we are evaluating them during the day and night with the LED lighting. Once the test is concluded we will pull them down.

Brushy Meadows Recycling Program Moving forward with our pilot project in Brushy Meadows for recycling. We have distributed the containers and put out information to all of the residents. We are already getting some feedback from residents. We will start collecting next week. We will do an every other week collection for six (6) month period. We look forward to receiving that input. Councilmember Albert is helping us tremendously getting word out in that community. We will look for ways to improve that, we will continue to monitor and adjust as we work though the pilot project. If it is a success going forward we will expand it as we go into 2019 and then ultimately Council will make the decision whether or not it is a program that we would desire to use citywide or expand it into other neighborhoods as we move forward. Please share feedback you receive with us. Downtown Construction Update:

Tagged Passions:council, recycling, downtown, selection, construction, program, and neighborhood

Commission of Public Works has completed most of their work. Most of their equipment has been moved out of the downtown area. They will continue to work with us on tie ends as we get into some of our larger construction on Trade Street on into next year and beyond.

Parking Lots/Alleyways We have completed the paving of the parking lot behind the Depot. We have completed the resurfacing of the parking lot at the Depot. The School Greer City Council Meeting Minutes July 10, 2018 Page 3 of 8 Street parking lot is complete. The alleyways that run on both sides of Trade Street are complete. We still have installation of lights and landscaping to take place in that area. Construction crews are not on site this week they will remobilize next week. Our intent in that was to prepare that area so that as we move toward construction of our major streetscape project that parking is available for folks. Also, it enables us to encourage our businesses on Trade Street to begin using the rear entrances of those buildings. Facade Grants As you are aware we have offered some grants and we given good utilization of applications for those grant programs. We have now awarded two (2) of those and we have eight (8) more in consideration. Bid Process We are finalizing the review of the construction documents, drawings on the Streetscape Project. As we complete that we will marry those documents along with our civil engineering drawings and that will enable us to prepare out bid documents, the project will then go to bid. Once the bid process is complete and received those we will bring the results back to Council looking for direction on how to proceed in awarding the bid. Streetscape Construction We envision we will start construction on much of the areas outside of Trade Street primarily being Main Street, Poinsett Street, Randall Street, Victoria Street, School Street and Depot Street. That work will take place this Fall in the downtown area. As best we can we will lighten on that as we go into the Christmas season for our downtown retail businesses and then we will come back much heavier after the first of the year in 2019. We will complete the work on the outlying areas as well as mobilize on Trade Street doing first the section on the lower end from the railroad tracks up to Randall Street. We will do demo and installation in that area, we will then move to Randall Street and Victoria Street and do demolition in that area and then construction and the move from Victoria Street to Poinsett Street. Trade Street will be done in three (3) sections. Construction Information I do remind all of us that there is information available to all of us on a regular basis at www.futuregreer.org. Everyone in the community can go to that site and register to receive regular email communications and updates. We will also load into that system all of our employees as well as our elected officials so that you will receive those email notifications on a regular basis as well. We will recognize if you have already done that so that you will not receive duplicate notifications. MASC (Municipal Association of South Carolina) Annual Conference We do have some folks that will be attending the MASC Annual Conference, next week I will have some additional information for those that are attending that meeting. I will have an email communication to you with some logistics about that. Abandoned Building Act Reno Deaton, Executive Director of Greer Development Corporation updated Council on the Abandoned Building Act. He stated We ve announced a great project for downtown Greer and that is Tribe513 and Grace Church have acquired the former Mutual Home Store, the former D D Ford building and they will be redeveloping that into a corporate headquarters for Tribe513, a new pediatricians office and the Greer campus of Grace Church. Again, a phenomenal project for us and we are very thrilled about it s progress and the way it is moving forward. Thrilled to have the opportunity to work with great people and I ll recognize tonight if you don t mind Jeff Greer City Council Meeting Minutes July 10, 2018 Page 4 of 8 Randolph is here tonight representing Grace Church and Chris Hill representing Tribe513. Also, by the way of background we are in the later stages of negotiating a development agreement with respect to this project there are some opportunities on this particular project, this particular parcel for a win win situation where there are some opportunities for the city to gain some advantages relative to adjacent development as well as provide some accommodations for this project to make this a really, really good project. Not just for development but for the community and the citizens as well. That s in the latter stages of negotiation. What you ve got on your agenda tonight is a request for acknowledgement of abandoned building status for a portion of that property. You may recall in some instances in the past we had the opportunity to look at the Abandoned Buildings Tax Credit Program. That is an incentive given to folks who invest in properties that have been not used, not operational at least sixty-six (66) percent of which non-operational for the last five (5) years. Again, non-operational sixty-six (66) percent of that building non- operational for the last five (5) years. The incentive is a credit that can take one (1) of two (2) forms either a credit as it pertains to South Carolina Income Tax or Real Property Tax. There are some different hurdles that you got to jump to get one (1) versus the other. The simplest and most frequent and the one that will be asked for in this particular situation is the credit as it pertain to the South Carolina Income Tax not the Real Property Tax Credit. So, that is on your agenda for this evening, typically in the past as you have evaluated the abandoned buildings opportunities that have come before you, you typically conferred with the Economic Development Attorney for the City of Greer just to make sure that the information that you have demonstrates that by definition of the statute that the building is in fact abandoned. I must apologize the City Council and certainly to Mr. Randolph to this point we ve not yet had an opportunity to confer with Economic Development Counsel to confirm that the property has been abandoned. I think the folks have some documentation, I suspect that we will move through in pretty short order. But again, I do apologize that at this point we ve not had a chance to confer with the City Attorney to have him them look at that documentation to make sure that we understand, that we can reasonably agree that the building has in fact been abandoned. Again, I think that we will get there, I just to this point unfortunately not had the opportunity to do so.

Mr. Driggers asked Mr. Deaton to share some other tools that are available when we are looking to redevelop sites. This is one of those tools that may be available to a developer some of the others that you may could mention that possibly could be available for this or other projects.

Mr. Deaton stated depending on what the property was used for previously and what the intended use is in the future there are number of different opportunities to reduce the overall tax burden, to improve the development potential for a piece of property if it is a former retail facility that s been empty for some period of time there are some provisions that allow for some tax credits to apply there, a former textile mill for example there are some opportunities to apply some credits that would make it a much more favorable development opportunity. If the property is found in a low to moderate income tax census tract there are some big incentives that would encourage redevelopment of that property and reduce the developers overall cost. We ve recently applied for opportunity zone status here in Greer for two (2) of our census tracts to include the census tract that is surrounds the Greer Mill and that that surrounds the Industrial Parks in the BMW, Velocity Park area of our community. That is a program that provides for a vehicle for folks to take otherwise proceeds that would be subject to capital gains tax to reinvest them in funds that them invest in new economic development projects in our opportunity zones to reduce the basis

Greer City Council Meeting Minutes July 10, 2018 Page 5 of 8 of their tax burden or the eliminate it depending upon the number years in which those dollars are held in fund and reinvested in the project. Beyond that we get to larger projects obviously there are things like fee-in-lieu-of tax credits, multi-county industrial park etcetera, etcetera the list goes on and on. Basically for any project that we have the opportunity to look at there are opportunities for us to look at ways to reduce the overall development burden without negatively impacting the revenue streams and the benefits that come to the community. Discussion held.
