CITY OF OMAHA
PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
AINSWORTH AND BEVERLY APARTMENTS 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 January 8, 2019, beginning at 2:00 PM in Legislative Chambers, 1819 Farnam Street, Omaha, Nebraska 68183 for the purpose of hearing testimony for:
The Ainsworth and Beverly Apartments Redevelopment Project Plan.
The Ainsworth and Beverly Apartment buildings are a pair of nearly identical four story brick apartment buildings built in 1919 and are located in the southwest quadrant of the Central Business District. The buildings are also located within the Drake Court National Register Historic District and are presently vacant and uninhabitable. Each building originally contained 37 apartment units, but the unit count will be reduced by combining two units into one to allow installation of an elevator in each building. Historic preservation tax credits will be used to assist project financing.
The Planning Board recommended approval of this Redevelopment Project Plan at the October 3, 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 $285,000.00, plus accrued interest. TIF will be used to offset eligible expenses such as acquisition, environmental and geotechnical studies, building rehabilitation, architectural and engineering fees and other public improvements as required. The total estimated project costs are $3,217,207.00, 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.

City Clerk, City of Omaha
