Discussion Regarding Cascade Mill Site Issues City Manager Tony O'Rourke gave an introduction on a great economic development opportunity at the former mill site, however, it requires significant environmental cleanup and infrastructure investment. He discussed the historical and current update of the status of the mill site in order to review the critical paths necessary to develop the area. Jeffrey Louman and Mike Battle of Huibregtse, Louman Associates and Steve Lewis from Lochner Engineering Consultants gave a Power Point presentation on the Yakima Cascade Mill Site Projects including- East-West Corridor Projects, Local Infrastructure Financing Tool (LIFT); Yakima Revenue Development Area (YRDA); YRDA LIFT request;YRDA Land Use Plan; Development time line; regional economic impact; landfill property closure; and preliminary critical path schedule Commissioner Leita noted developments can take on a momentum of their own and there is an opportunity to tailor this proposal as opposed to following the proposal Council Member Lover questioned if a $20 car tab fee package could be used to support the development and suggested staff look into this option. There was discussion on a sports complex being developed in the area, and City Manager O'Rourke suggested comparing site costs to alternative locations, such as the State Fair Park. Dave McFadden of New Vision pointed out that LIFT designations are not working well in other cities around the state and they are hoping to adjust and improve the legislation. Council Member Coffey questioned if the City needs to utilize LIFT funding this year. Mr Louman noted it has to be spent by December 31, and spent in the calendar year. Mayor Cawley stressed the City and County collaboration has been incredible and the momentum is good. Page 1 of 2 3.
