should be made by the end of the year if all approvals have been received.

The Commission will consider the request for an NEZ at its meeting on September 13, 2016.

The Commission discussed the possibility of a streetlight assessment to replace current lights for

2016-70ITEMS REMOVED FROM CONSENT AGENDA:
      C. Supplemental MERS Contribution Finance
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: One of the most significant financial challenges facing
the city and many other governments across the nation is the issue of pension
funding. Relative to many other cities, Muskegon’s pension plans have
historically been considered well-funded. However, in recent years, due in part
to lower than expected investment returns and changes in actuarial
assumptions, the funding levels of the city’s pension plans have decreased.
Paying down the city’s existing pension legacy costs will present budget
challenges for years to come.
For the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2016, staff conservatively budgeted for
an increase in pension costs. During the course of fiscal year 2015-16, an
additional $206,831.82 was expensed and accumulated for payment towards
the city’s pension costs. At this time staff believes it is appropriate to take this
opportunity to make a $206,831.82 supplemental payment (above the actuarial
computed amount) to MERS. This is money that the city would be required to
pay to MERS eventually. Paying early, while the city is in a position to do so,
makes time an ally (instead of an enemy) and may help to ease some pressure
on future city budgets.
FINANCIAL IMPACT:        $206,831.82   supplemental     payment      to   MERS.
$201,831.82 will be paid from monies already set aside for MERS in the collector
fund.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED:         None.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:        Authorize staff to make a               supplemental
$206,831.82 payment to MERS no later than October 31, 2016.
Motion by Commissioner German, second by Commissioner Johnson, to
authorize staff to make a supplemental $206,831.82 payment to MERS no later

      F. Request to Create a New Neighborhood Enterprise Zone District at 316
         Morris Street Planning & Economic Development
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Pursuant to Public Act 147 of the Michigan Public Acts
of 1992, Hinman Lake, LLC has requested to create a new Neighborhood
Enterprise Zone district for the parcel at 316 Morris Street. Properties located in
this NEZ district will be eligible to apply for NEZ certificates, which will lower the
residential property taxes for rehab construction. Notice letters were sent to the
taxing jurisdictions on July 1 and a public hearing was held on July 12. State law
requires that the resolution must be adopted at least 60 days after the notice
letters were sent. This project will include 19 condo units that will be located on
the 6th and 7th floors of the current building.
FINANCIAL IMPACT:          No financial impact at this point. However, being in a
district will allow them to apply for a rehab NEZ certificate, which will freeze the
building at its pre-rehabilitated rate for 1 to 15 years.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED:          None
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:            Staff recommends approval of the new NEZ
district.

         Planning & Economic Development – SECOND READING
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The City has received an application to designate 52
parcels under the water supplies ordinance. These parcels are associated with
the former Mobil Oil Pipeline – Sisson Avenue at McCracken Street. The
ordinance prohibits the use of groundwater wells and secondary water supplies

contaminated groundwater, as well as to prevent wells from influencing the
movement of contaminated water. Notice was sent to the affected addresses
prior to this meeting.

RE:           Demolition of 1812 Lakeshore Drive- City “Grant”
              to Share in Costs


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Dick Ghezzi recently purchased the property at 1812
Lakeshore Drive. This building has been a blight in the Lakeside Business District for
several years. Mr. Ghezzi is requesting “grant” assistance from the City in
demolishing the building (similar to the request approved for 1785 Beidler last year).
It is located along a critical commercial corridor, as well as adjacent to the Lake
Express Ferry Terminal. Mr. Ghezzi intends to demolish part of the building for a
parking lot and will improve the remainder (see attached memo).



FINANCIAL IMPACT: Mr. Ghezzi received two quotes (see attached). The lowest
quote if for $14,200. It is recommended that the City pay $7,100, or half the amount
of the lowest quoted price, which will be paid from the City’s current budget for
building demolitions.



BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.



STAFF RECOMMENDATION: To accept the cost share with Mr. Ghezzi for half the
amount of the lowest quote, which is $7,100.00. The payment will be made after the
demolition and parking improvements are completed.

From: Cathy Brubaker-Clarke, Director of Community & Economic Dev.
Date: 9/21/2016
Re:    Demolition of 1812 Lakeshore Drive- City “Grant” to Share in Costs



Staff has been in conversation with Dick Ghezzi over the last several months as
he considered the purchase of 1812 Lakeshore Drive. His recent purchase of
the building is an exciting event, as Mr. Ghezzi has a history of converting
problem properties into attractive businesses and residences. Improvements
have already started on the property. Overall plans for the building include
converting the 52’ x 95’ building on the corner of Lakeshore and Estes into retail
on the first floor, while adding a second floor for residential apartments (or
possibly a boutique hotel). The majority of the building to the west will be
demolished. A portion of this area may be built on, with the remaining being
parking. He estimates a total project cost of $500,000+.

Mr. Ghezzi has two bids (attached), with the lowest bid being for $14,200. Staff
recommends sharing the cost of the demolition, with a cost not to exceed
$7,100. This amount will be paid to Mr. Ghezzi when he completes both the
demolition and parking improvement. He expects to complete the demolition
this fall, with the parking improvements and landscaping being made in the
spring of 2017.

       STAFF OBSERVATIONS
                                             STAFF REPORT
                                            September 15, 2016

       Hearing, Case 2016-12: Request to rezone the properties at 307 & 313 W Laketon Ave
       from I-2, General Industrial to B-4, General Business.


       BACKGROUND

           1. The properties are currently zoned I-2, General Industrial. They were previously the
              location of the former bar, Time Out Lounge, which went out of business several
              years ago. The properties have been zoned industrial even prior to 1986 (major year
              for rezonings) and the bar operated as a legal non-conforming use.
           2. The new owner would like to operate a banquet/rental hall. This type of use is
              allowed in B-2, Convenience & Comparison Business districts and B-4, General
              Business districts. These properties are better fitted as a B-4 district rather than a B-
              2 district because of its location on a major street and also because of the proximity
              to other B-4 districts adjacent to these properties. Please see the enclosed ordinance
              excerpt for allowed uses in B-4 districts.
           3. The properties to the north and the west are zoned B-4, General Business and the
              properties to the south and the east are zoned I-2, General Industrial.
           4. Given the historical use of the property and the functionality of the current building
              on site, staff recommends rezoning of the properties regardless of the request for a
              banquet/rental hall. Since the building has been vacant for more than two years, it
              has lost its legal non-conforming status to operate as a bar again. Also, any
              conversion to retail would also require a rezoning to a business district. Staff also
              feels this is a good location from a banquet hall, since it has several buffers between
              it and residential districts. This request follows the guidelines of the master plan to
              provide buffer zones between industrial, commercial and residential zones.           The
              property also has more than adequate parking for uses allowed in B-4 districts, with
              about 40 spaces on site.
           5. B-4, General Business districts have a minimum lot requirement of 10,890 sf and
              must have at least 100’ of road frontage. The property at 313 W Laketon Ave
              measures 76’ x 104’ for a total of 7,904 sf. and has 76’ of road frontage. The
              property at 307 W Laketon Ave is an L shaped lot with 57’ of frontage on Laketon
              Ave and has a total of 12,196 sf. Separately, neither meet the requirements for a B-
              4 lot, but together they do. Combined, the properties measure 133’(on Laketon Ave)
              x 152, for a total of 20,216 sf (0.48 acres). Staff recommends that any approval of
              rezoning is contingent upon the lots being combined.
           6. Notice letters were sent to properties within 300 ft of this property. At the time of
              this writing, staff has not received any comments from the public.

           Report (CAPER 2015)


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: To conduct a public hearing of the 2015-

the City of Muskegon Community and Neighborhood Services
department.
FINANCIAL IMPACT:    None

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION: None

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report
                      2015 Grant
                                 2015 Program Year CAPER


      This is the last Annual Action Plan accomplishment of strategic goals for the 2011 Consolidated Plan.
Some programs were typical of previous years’ expectations.

        Highlights that are easily calculated are the number of households assisted through our Vinyl Siding
program are 10 vinyl siding projects (2 more than last year) and with Priority home repairs for 40 (same as 2014
) residents were assisted. However, a significant project to stabilizing neighborhoods is Board-ups. The city is
trying to rid our community of unsightly, blighted buildings that can be unsafe to adjacent neighbors and
potentially to curious children. Making sure these structures are secured is vital to the ongoing, and sometimes
lengthy process of demolition. When our focus is to create a more positive image that better represents our
strengths and services, addressing blighted neighborhoods is just one initial step to reaching this goal. There
were 54 board-ups and 8 clearances (demolitions) that occurred this year. Census tract neighborhoods include:
3, 4.01, 4.02, 5, 6.01, 8, 21, and 42.

        The Target neighborhood continues to grow to include all of Nelson neighborhood census tracts 6.01
and 6.02. The completion of Monroe Street was a benefit to the Midtown Square development sponsored by the
city of Muskegon for market-rate, single family housing. The park received a new fence courtesy of the
Neighborhood Association and this program. This area has been revitalized and now the 1st buyer is occupying
1 of the 9 newly built homes in the target area. The Million dollar investment by the city produced an
aesthetical, emotional and secure reaction from the public at large, as well because it was a visual investment of
funds that was otherwise unknown to this neighborhood 3 years ago. Our concentration in this area offered
citizens and youth an opportunity to work alongside a very active neighborhood association. There have been 3
rental rehabilitation projects started, 5 housing repair assistance activities and 2 vinyl siding constructions
completed.

       Assisting citizens with Priority Housing Repairs - specifically roofs, which made up over half the repairs
provided when a huge windstorm damaged several homes in our community. Many households sought help to
make the necessary repairs that would keep them safe in their homes, and many received help with their
furnaces through our partnership with DTE. Other services requested were for electric and plumbing defects.

Fair Housing

        Each year Muskegon County and our sister cities, Muskegon Heights and Norton Shores, partner
through an inter-agency agreement to use resources from the Fair Housing Agency of West Michigan (FHA).
The agreement enlists surveys, testing, training, reports, and if necessary, investigations into complaints from
our Muskegon area citizenry. We feel that our contract with the FHCWM is beneficial to uncovering fair
housing behaviors and tendencies that create barriers to affordable housing. This was the final year of a 2-year
contract to monitoring our area housing complexes and to connect with our citizens who report possible housing
discriminatory actions. This collaboration offers a critical opportunity to reduce unjust practices as well as
strengthen our individual communities. In light of the reports provided, we can alter Action Plan programs and
projects to address any discriminatory actions that limit choice, and inhibit our assistance to provide affordable
housing that is safe, and decent.

Affordable Housing

        HOME funds support activities for Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs), Rental
Housing projects and our Homebuyer Programs which have impacted our community in a positive way. This
year our CHDO reserve dollars were held until our CHDOs were able to complete their 2014 affordable housing
projects: 1 homebuyer unit and 2 rental units were produced. Our collaboration with the County Lead Grant
helped to carry Lead Abatement costs for our Rental Rehabilitation projects. We were able to rehabilitate and
create 4 affordable units (4 single-family projects) where lead hazard components were removed or remediated
that once threatened the health of children under 6 years of age.

        The 2009 Building Code standards is our rehabilitation/new construction standard. All housing projects
within the City of Muskegon CDBG and HOME funding conform to our local codes of enforcement.
Successfully, staff monitors the progress of each project and inspections are required and important safeguards
throughout the building process. Annually, safer housing units are being produced successfully through our
Homebuyer Programs.

       Since the inception of the Homebuyer Assistance program, we have helped with closing costs and pre-
paid expenses incurred by homebuyers who choose to purchase homes in our city limits. HOME program
income is our funding source and by this program we have 10 new homeowners in our neighborhoods.

        We continue to work together on the promotion of qualified contractors that provide quality work. In
addition, our commitment to support and enlist minority and women owned contractors is a commitment that
comes with challenges. Most recent collaborations with the county of Muskegon and a local CHDO agency
provide evidence that we must reach minority and female individuals interesting in construction services.
Contact has been made to include West Michigan WORKS to present opportunities to grow Lead Abatement
contractors in our area. The 1st training is expected to happen in 2016 funding year from which we can
anticipate a list of Section 3 contractors will be created.

       Internally, our Affirmative Action department updates policies to include local minority-owned
businesses in our selection process. Concurrently, the number of minority contractors hired through the city is
                                                       3
being tracked and reported. Having local contractors is vital to our process. Without this service trade, we have
delays in our activity operations, waiting lists and various barriers of service to low income families.


General Questions

       Any obstacles we faced in meeting the underserved needs could be linked to our funding resources. We
do not have a match requirement in our community, so the biggest challenge was met head on by the reduction
of Muskegon’s 2011 grant allocation. As a result of dropping below 1 million in CDBG money, we were forced
to make policy changes to offset less funding. We continued to serve low income households and ultimately,
we could only fund one sub-recipient agency to help us carry out our goals. 2014 remained constant with just
the one agency, LOVE Inc. We continue to offer grants from our entitlement funds to provide youth with after-
school activities - open gym, and a number of summer programs and activities geared to engage children and
offered specific character building programs.


                                                     THE PROCESS

Operations

       Staff from Community and Neighborhood Services is working with local departments, outside agencies
and commissioners to move forward on our plans to provide services to our low to moderate income citizens.
Our efforts to assist a local unit of government have gone well for 7 years. Increasing our partnerships has
enhanced the community’s perception of us working together. It is clear that we have the staff capacity to
continue this level of service work as well as performing contractual duties in another municipality.

        For all of our housing programs, we did not displace any homeowner. It is necessary to state that our
CDBG funded programs were limited to our entitlement allocation and any additional resources were covered
by (PI) Program Income received from the CDBG programming.

         Affordable, decent and safe housing is critical to goals and objectives of the 2011 Consolidated Plan
activities.

Barriers to Affordable Housing

         It has become increasingly difficult to get responsible contractors. Given this dilemma, a task group was
formed to solicit, mentor, and grow contractors. Our focus was to reach out first, to local abatement
contractors, then general building contractors, and lastly, approach youth/adults/females in our unemployment
system called West Michigan WORKS! The team of organizers consists of the County of Muskegon, an active
CHDO agency, and the City of Muskegon prepared to offer training for lead abatement certificates and building
licenses for interested individuals. The ground work has been laid and we are working to have the 1st training in
the fall of 2016.


Homeless Needs

         In our community, the City of Muskegon is an active board member of the Continuum of Care
Coalition. Local agencies have a vested interest in working with the CoC. It appears that adjustments are
working. There is tracking of clients and housing vouchers for households at risk of becoming homeless
including support case management. Certain interest in the Veteran Population is now a major focus of local
agencies. Special resources are set aside to end homelessness for our Veterans in 2017. Limited funding may
restrict this goal but these agencies are doing their best to push toward this challenge.

Actions taken to deter homelessness
       - Staff training
       - Recruitment of landlords
       - Multi-agent programs for at risk families
       - Support groups
       - Improved housing opportunity facilities


Non-Homeless Special Needs

        Special consideration for low-income families is important to our City Commission. With a local sub-
recipient, Love Inc., families who are in need of additional dollars to help with utilities and rent are screened
before they are allowed to receive assistance. Below are the figures of how many were assisted with a small
amount of funding. What is not shown are the households assisted with Ramps- no applications were approved
and this funding will roll over into the 2016 year,

       13 residents of the City of Muskegon were assisted with Rent/Utility Assistance.

             Commission Meeting Date: September 27, 2016




Date:         September 22, 2016
To:           Honorable Mayor & City Commission
From:         Planning & Economic Development Department
RE:           BID Special Assessment- Resolution Approving District


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The Downtown Business Improvement District (BID)
Board is requesting that the special assessment district for downtown properties be
renewed. The previous BID district was only approved for one year. Since the BID
assessment is still very new, it is proposed that it be extended for another one-year
term to allow us to gauge its impact before committing to a longer term. The
assessments will continue to go towards various downtown expenditures, including
snow removal on sidewalks, spring/fall cleanup and landscaping, events, directional
signs, and marketing/advertising. The BID assessment includes both a “Class A” and
a “Class B” district (see attached list).



FINANCIAL IMPACT: The total estimated cost of services within the BID is $150,000
of which approximately 75% ($111,924) will be paid by the special assessment to
property owners.



BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.



STAFF RECOMMENDATION: To approve the attached resolution approving the
special assessment district and authorize the Mayor and Clerk to sign.
To our Downtown Muskegon neighbors,

The City of Muskegon, in partnership with Downtown Muskegon Now, is proposing to
renew the Business Improvement District (BID) assessment for another year, starting in
January of 2017. Because the previous BID district assessment was approved for a one-
year period only, we must repeat the notification process for next year’s request, which
is the purpose of the enclosed letter. Since the BID assessment is still very new, we are
proposing another one-year term to allow us to gauge its impact before committing to a
longer term.

Funds from the 2016 BID assessment have enabled us to pay for several items which
improved our downtown business district: snow removal from downtown sidewalks
(starting February 1); downtown landscaping and maintenance including plantings in 27
planters; the printing of 20,000 downtown map brochures; the launch of the popular
“First Friday” events, including the street performers and the September “touch the
trucks” event; the purchase and installation of new downtown map signs at the Johnson
Traffic Circle, Muskegon Farmer’s Market, and the Union Depot/CVB; and the overall
marketing and development of Muskegon’s ever-improving downtown. We are asking
you to help keep this momentum going by approving the BID district for 2017.

Please review the enclosed letter for details, including your proposed assessment
amount. The 2017 BID documents, including the Benefit Analysis Summary, can be
viewed in the Planning Department (room 203) at City Hall, or on the City’s website at
www.shorelinecity.com.

                                    Resolution No. _____

             Resolution At First Hearing Creating Special Assessment District
             For Downtown Muskegon Business Improvement District (BID)
                  Location and Description of Properties to be assessed:
                         See Exhibit A attached to this resolution


RECITALS:

1.   By resolution of the City Commission, a hearing has been held on September 27, 2016, at
     5:30 p.m. at the City Commission Chambers. Notice was given by mail and publication
     as required by law.

2.   That estimates of costs of the project, a feasibility report and valuation and benefit
     information are on file with the City and have been reviewed for this hearing.

3.   At the hearing held on September 27, 2016, there were _____________ objections by the
     owners of the property in the city registered at the hearing either in writing received
     before or at the hearing or by owners or agents present at the hearing, and the
     Commission has considered the advisability of proceeding with the project.

FINDINGS:

1.   The City Commission has examined the estimates of cost, including all assessable
     expenses, and determines them to be reasonable.

2.   The City Commission has considered the value of the property to be assessed and the
     value of the benefit to be received by each property to be assessed in the district for
     downtown improvements and services. The City Commission determines that the
     assessments of costs of the City project will enhance the value of the property to be
     assessed in an amount at least equivalent to the assessment and that the improvement
     thereby constitutes a benefit and remove a burden from the property associated with the
     services and improvements to the property.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:

1.   The City Commission hereby declares a special assessment district to include all of the
     property included in Exhibit A.

2.   The City Commission determines to proceed with the special assessment.
3.     The City Commission hereby appoints a Board of Assessors consisting of City
       Commissioners _______________________________ and ______________________
       and the City Assessor who are hereby directed to prepare an assessment roll. Assessments
       shall be made upon a benefit basis.

4.     It is hereby determined that, based on the estimates of cost for services and improvements
       downtown, the City will levy a special assessment in the said district on “Class A”
