TITLE

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 160 OF THE LOUISVILLE METRO CODE OF ORDINANCES TO EXPAND THE BOUNDARIES OF THE LOUISVILLE DOWNTOWN MANAGEMENT DISTRICT.

BODY

Sponsored By:   COUNCILMEMBER DAVID TANDY

 

WHEREAS, KRS 91.750 - 91.762 (the “Act”) authorizes the Council to establish within Louisville Metro one or more management districts for the purpose of providing and financing economic improvements that specifically benefit privately-owned property within such management districts;

WHEREAS, Chapter 160 of the Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances established the Louisville Downtown Management District (the “District”) pursuant to the Act;

WHEREAS, on August 21, 2015, the Louisville Downtown Partnership presented to the Mayor a petition (“Petition”) requesting that the boundaries of the District be expanded to include three contiguous areas located north, west, and south of the current boundaries of the District as shown in Exhibit A hereto (the “District Expansion Area”);

WHEREAS, the Petition was signed by 11 property owners within the District Expansion Area (“Owners”), which Owners constitute 47.8% of the number of owners of real property within the District Expansion Area and the value of the properties owned by the Owners equals 67% of the total assessed value of all benefited real property within the District Expansion Area;

WHEREAS, the Mayor has determined that the Petition satisfies the requirements of the Act and has therefore forwarded the Petition to the Council for the adoption of an ordinance expanding the boundaries of the District to include the District Expansion Area as requested by the Petition; and

WHEREAS, the Council, having considered the Petition and having conducted a public hearing on the expansion of the District, after causing notice of the hearing and a summary of the plan for the District Expansion Area to be published twice in the Courier-Journal in accordance with KRS Chapter 424, and having mailed a copy of this Ordinance and notice of the public hearing by first-class mail to all property owners within the District Expansion Area, the Council has determined that the expansion of the boundaries of the District to include the District Expansion Area will be advantageous to Louisville Metro;

SECTION I:  That Attachment A referenced in Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances Section 160.01 shall be deleted and replaced in its entirety by the map attached hereto as Exhibit A, which map shall be incorporated by reference and be made a part of Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances Chapter 160 as if set out fully therein.  

SECTION II:                     That all provisions of Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances Chapter 160 shall apply to the benefited properties within the District Expansion Area as of the effective date of this Ordinance.
