Health & Social Services Committee 2/10/2014 2D Amended Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation with committee amendment(s) P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Terrence Smith read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record, and advised that the item had a number of proposed amendments. Commissioner Monestime noted while the organization was based in Chairwoman Edmonson’s district, the lots were located in his district; therefore, he wished to move the item. He asked Assistant County Attorney Terrence Smith to read the proposed amendments. Assistant County Attorney Smith advised that the amendments to the item included a change in the title, which should be “to Little Haiti Housing Association Inc. doing business as Haitian American Community Development Corporation’; in the third “Whereas Clause” the word “five” should be deleted and replaced by the word “four”; a new fourth “Whereas Clause” should be added, which should read “Whereas only three of the four requested properties are available to be conveyed to the developer, and …”; in Section 2 of the resolution, the word “five” should be deleted and replaced with the word “three”; in the County deed, the following words should be inserted in the first paragraph, “Little Haiti Housing Association Inc. dba”; and in the attachment the first folio number and the property description should be deleted. In response to Commissioner Monestime’s question as to whether the organization had to build homes on these properties, and sell them to first-time homebuyers, Assistant County Attorney Smith confirmed that this was correct, and noted these properties would be used for infill housing development. Pursuant to Chairwoman Edmonson’s question regarding whether the payment of $10 would be for all three parcels, Assistant County Attorney Smith confirmed that this was correct, noting all of the folio numbers had been grouped together into one deed as an exhibit. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee members proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution, as amended.
