                     WHEREAS, the Exemption Area was previously approved as an Urban Development Action Area Project under Section 694 of the General Municipal Law;

 

                      WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Amended Project on September 25, 2017;

 

                        WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and financial implications and other policy issues relating to the Project;

 

RESOLVED:

                                             

                     The Council approved the Amended Tax Exemption pursuant to Section 696 of the General Municipal Law as follows:

1.                     All of the value of the buildings, structures, and other improvements situated on each Exemption Area shall be exempt from local and municipal taxes, other than assessments for local improvements and land value, for a period of twenty years commencing on the July 1st following the date of conveyance by the City, during the last ten years of which such exemption shall decrease in equal annual decrements.

 

2.                     Notwithstanding any provision hereof to the contrary no partial exemption from real property taxation shall be provided hereunder unless HPD and the property owner, in their respective sole discretion, enter into an agreement requiring the property owner to occupy at least one unit as their primary residence during the entire term of the partial tax exemption granted hereunder.

 

3.                     The partial tax exemption granted hereunder shall terminate with respect to all or any portion of an Exemption Area if the Department of Housing Preservation and Development determines that such real property has not been, or is not being, developed, used, and/or operated in compliance with the requirements of all agreements made by any owner of such real property with, or for the benefit of, the City of New York. The Department of Housing Preservation and Development shall deliver written notice of any such determination of noncompliance to the owner of such real property and all mortgagees of record, which notice shall provide for an opportunity to cure of not less than ninety (90) days. If the noncompliance specified in such notice is not cured within the time period specified therein, the partial tax exemption granted hereunder shall prospectively terminate with respect to the real property specified therein.

 

Adopted.
