AMENDMENT TO THE PEPPER HALL AND OKATIE RIVER PARK JOINT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT

Eric Greenway, Planning and Zoning Director The proposed DA Amendment amends and restates certain sections of the original Development Agreement in order to more clearly detail each party's obligations and rights as far as the construction of Graves and the Park Access Road are concerned as well as clarifying the details associated with creation of the Improvement District. Does the County Council desire to adopt the amended Development Agreement? Does the County Council agree to use the Improvement District to cover the fees paid by the owner to establish the district? The original DA stated that the owner has agreed for the County to be able establish the improvement district which may have implied the county would assume the costs for creating the district.
Tagged Interests: road, impact fee, planning, construction, council, development, zoning, watershed, parks, Development, and graves

1.1 million per year until the County has fully reimbursed the owner. It is assumed the funding the source will be TAG revenue but that will be more fully determined in each budget cycle.

Adopt the amended Development Agreement. Deny the adoption of the amended Development Agreement. The original obligations will still be in effect. Staff, based on the property owner's /developer's need for a more specific commitment, for financing purposes, regarding the County's desire to pursue the funding of the improvements and the need for more specificity to the details of the Neighborhood Improvement District recommends that the resolution be adopted by the County Council.
