Document Description
The project would involve an amendment to City of Hollister's Community Development Plan (adopted in 1983). The amendment would amend the existing Plan as follows: 1. Increase the Plan's cumulative tax increment revenue limit from $87 million to $650 million; 2. Increase the Plan's bonded indebtedness limit from $35 million to $75 million; 3. Eliminate the Plan's time limit to incur debt; 4. Reestablish the Redevelopment Agency's authority to use eminent domain, as a last resort, in portions of the downtown area to acquire property; and 5. Amend the Plan by means of adopting an Amended and Restated Plan that will incorportate all recent changes in Redevelopment Law as well as update the aformentioned amendments. The proposed Second Amendment to the Plan does not include any changes to land uses within the Project Area. Development of individual sites within the Project Area would be consistent with the Hollister General Plan.
