There is a Redevelopment Meeting this afternoon, sometime after 4:00 pm. Â I say sometime after, because there is an Executive Session of the Redevelopment Commission first. Â This session is closed to the public. Â
There is an agenda for the executive session, and this is the first time I can remember seeing one with an actual item listed on it:
The purchase or lease of real property by the governing body up to the time a contractÂ or option to purchase or lease is executed by the parties, as defined in Indiana CodeÂ 5-14-1.5-6.1 (b)(2)(D)
Of course, we won’t find out anything about the real property today. Â I think it a safe bet that it’s not the OmniSource property. Â I don’t think it concerns the Dimension Ford property along Jefferson Boulevard either as those details have already been made public knowledge. Â Any ideas from the blogosphere?
The regular agenda is available here. Â There is a resolution to increase parking rates for the Midtowne Crossing tenants from $73 to $78 per month. Â Wow! Â Here at my building, I can “rent” a space for $25 per month. Â Of course, it’s in the open and can be a hassle during winter snowstorms, but that’s a small price to pay compared to nearly three times as much. Â I’m curious how this stacks up when compared to other garages downtown.
There are 12 Harrison Square related change orders and/or other contracts on the agenda as well. Â Those should be interesting.
I will try to attend the meeting this afternoon and will bring you full details later today.
