PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
HABITAT KOUNTZE PARK 5 REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT PLAN
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Omaha, Nebraska, will meet and hold a public hearing on November 6, 2018, beginning at 2:00 PM in Legislative Chambers, 1819 Farnam Street, Omaha, Nebraska 68183 for the purpose of hearing testimony for:
The Habitat Kountze Park 5 Redevelopment Project Plan.
This Redevelopment Plan proposes the construction of 22 new single family homes, and rehabilitation of two existing homes, for ownership by income eligible home buying households. Most of the lots are vacant, but some deteriorated houses will be demolished as part of the project. Site preparation will also involve tree removal on some overgrown lots. Habitat anticipates the total construction costs to average about $165,000.00 for each new home. The new construction homes will have an average assessed valuation for about $90,000.00 each, and the rehabilitated homes will have an average value of about $62,500.00.
The Planning Board recommended approval of this Redevelopment Project Plan at the September 5, 2018 public hearing.
This Redevelopment Plan authorizes the City’s participation in the redevelopment of this project site through the allocation of TIF in an amount up to $405,000.00, plus accrued interest. TIF will be used to offset eligible expenses such as acquisition, demolition, environmental and geotechnical studies, site work, architectural and engineering fees, and other public improvements as required. The total estimated project costs are $5,356,900.00, but are subject to change as final costs come in.
A copy of said plan is available for public inspection in the City Clerk's Office.
Anyone interested in this matter should be in attendance.
Elizabeth Butler, CMC
City Clerk, City of Omaha
