UNANIMOUS

VOICE VOTE (as amended)

 

Chair Nakian moved two amendments to the ordinance, as approved by the Committee.  Chair Nakian stated that she is uncertain as to the amount of taxes that should be reimbursed by the Foundation.  The tax bill that she has may apply to the entire property, not just Unit 1, and rather than have to change the ordinance after publication, she would rather reword it now.  This way, when she gets the correct amount, it will not be a material change to the ordinance.  The changes are:  in paragraph 2, the words in the first sentence would read:  “in accordance with such exemption, all real property taxes attributable to Unit 1…”.  In the last line of the same paragraph, the dollar amount will be deleted and the words “the amount paid for this period” will be substituted.  Said motion was seconded and approved by unanimous voice vote.

 

Chair Nakian moved a third amendment to add the words “in the amount of $222,428.05.”  Said motion was seconded and approved by unanimous voice vote.

 

Chair Nakian moved the ordinance for publication; said motion was seconded and approved by unanimous voice vote.

REPORT

MADE

 

Last year, St. Luke’s and the City received CDBG funding to acquire a multi-family building to provide short-term housing for families temporarily displaced by the lead paint reduction code compliance efforts.  The grant was the first step in a process that resulted in the purchase of 28 Rosa Park Avenue on November 15, 2002.  Other funding came from the Mayor’s Housing Development Fund and the Fairfield County Foundation.  The Housing Development Fund of Fairfield County provided mortgage financing.

 

Ellen Bromley attended the meeting to update the Committee on the project.  Under the terms of an operating agreement with the City, St. Luke’s will manage the lead safe house, occupancy of the three units in the house will rotate, and subject to income eligibility, placement will be prioritized as follows:  families displaced by mandated lead paint remediation activities; families displaced by voluntary lead paint remediation or other code related remediation; subject to appropriations, families referred by the City’s relocation officer and other families in need of temporary housing.

 

If the property ceases to operate as originally intended, it must be used as affordable residential rentals.

11/12/02 – Submitted by Chair DeLuca

11/21/02 – Committee Approved 5-0-0

APPROVED

BY MACHINE

VOTE (32-1)

 

A motion to approve Item No. T26.022 was made and seconded.

 

Rep. Zelinsky asked the item to be removed from the Consent Agenda.

 

Chair DeLuca stated that the residential parking fee permit will be increased from $5 to $10, and the transfer from one zone to another charge will increase from $2 to $5.  These fee increases will help cover the costs of implementing the residential parking zone areas.  Another change refers to the buffer period.  If someone wants to set up a residential parking permit zone, they need to get 65% of the residents to sign the petition; then it is submitted to the Traffic Advisory Committee, the Committee does a survey and at that point can reject it.  The applicants will have to wait one year to resubmit the application.  Currently there are situations where the residents return month after month only to be continually turned down.  The ordinance also provides a calendar year basis (1/1 to 12/31).  At the end of each year, applicants will have thirty days to renew the residential parking permit program.  The City sends a notice, you have 120 days to renew the program.  Chair DeLuca moved the ordinance.  Said motion was seconded.

 

Rep. Zelinsky moved to amend the permit fee increase from $10 to $7 and the transfer fee from $5 to $3.  The motion failed for lack of a second.

 

The ordinance was approved by a machine vote of 32-1 (Note: Rep. Molgano voted in the affirmative; Rep. Zelinsky opposed). (See RCS Vote Record #333). 

 

A motion to approve the Consent Agenda, consisting of Item Nos. 1 and 2, was made, seconded and approved by unanimous voice vote.
