EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

 

The purpose of the ordinance is to approve an intergovernmental agreement between DURA, Adams County and Denver County regarding the existing Globeville Commercial URP and TIF Area. Specifically, the IGA addresses the final true up of the initial project, repayment of the HUD 108 loan, reimbursing Adams County for funds advanced and starting a 12-month period for all parties to finalize four additional projects. The IGA is a continuation of the original process and concept.

 

Denver’s first two-county urban renewal area was created in 2011 facilitating environmental remediation and site improvements to ready the 77-acre former ASARCO Globe Plant for development of an industrial-business park. The TIF area is approximately 80% in Adams County and 20% in Denver County. The total initial project costs were estimated at $21 million. $10 million of the costs were financed by the proceeds of a HUD 108 loan issued by Adams County. The primary source of repayment for the HUD 108 loan was land sales and TIF revenue as a secondary source of repayment. The initial project is complete and last land sale in 2018 left a remaining balance of $344,081.77 on the HUD 108 loan. This remaining balance was paid by Adams County and is intended to be reimbursed by the TIF as an eligible cost. When Adams County is reimbursed it will start a twelve-month period for both counties to agree on any additional eligible projects.

 

A team with representation from DURA, Adams County and Denver have preliminarily agreed to four possible projects and will use the next twelve months to refine the scope and costs. The proposed projects have a nexus to the original Urban Renewal Plan and are listed below:

                     54th Avenue from Washington to Franklin

                     Wayfinding design and installation on Washington

                     Multi-use paths from National Western Center Bridges to Washington Street

                     Updating 51st and Washington intersection

 

The team will work over the twelve-month period to finalize these projects.
