Resolution R-11-171

Background Discussion
  • On September 6, 2011, the Board approved a Land Use Restriction Agreement and Deed Restrictions for Learn to Fish, Inc. for the purpose of providing a rental housing unit for eligible clients of the agency.
  • Paragraph 2. provides for a timeline for the completion of the rehabilitation and occupancy of the housing unit which was initially determined to be September 6, 2012.
  • Staff notified the agency of the default of their agreement on October 8, 2012 and initiated the 120 day cure period for the completion of the rehabilitation.
  • Staff received a response from the agency dated November 8, 2012 asking to an extension to the completion date due to a break-in and vandalism to the property which will require additional time, funding, and repair in order to complete the project.
  • A review of the inspections records for this project, permit #1120226, indicates there has been steady progress made and staff would recommend an amendment to the agreement at this time.
