From City Manager Wendell Johnson

The “Finding of Necessity” for the expansion of the CRA has been prepared and furnished to the City.

The Notice to Taxing Entities and Public Hearing process is underway and the findings will be submitted for CRA and Council consideration during February 2011.

The boundaries are proposed for expansion to the north from the existing CRA terminating at Bascom Norris Drive. The east and west boundaries of the proposed expansion remain along the same line.

The recommendation of IBI Group and the City Staff will be to approve expansion of the boundaries and to include the expanded boundaries in the updated CRA Plan.
