                    RESOLUTION SUMMARY
Olivette Simpson
Resolution No.: 03-03-10H


Resolution Title:
Resolution Authorizing the Transfer of Certain Camden Redevelopment Agency-Owned
Property to the City of Camden for the Camden Lutheran Housing, Inc. Housing Project


Project Summary: A redevelopment plan is not currently adopted for North Camden, so
that this request permits the City to convey property for development purposes. Camden
Lutheran Housing, a non-profit organization, working in the North Camden
neighborhood, is proposing to develop ten (10) units of affordable For Sale housing
known as the Tres Esquinas (Three Corners).           The Project site is located at the
                                    nd
southwest corner of State Street (2 and State Streets) on Block 38, Lots 12, 15, and 16.
See Exhibit “A” Property List. The project site will be completed by the transfer of the
CRA property to the City, and the City’s conveyance of these properties to the NP.

This is one of the first housing projects under the $11.9 MM CRA/City Neighborhood
Stabilization Program (NSP 2) grant awarded by HUD on January 14, 2010. Program
Activity for NSP 2, includes affordable housing development in North Camden (Census
Tracts 6007 and 6008). NSP2, as Federal Stimulus dollars, are to be expended within
certain time periods; namely half by February 11, 2012, and the remaining funds by
February 11, 2013. An average of $30,000.00 per unit in NSP 2 funds will be committed
to the Tres Esquinas project. Other sources for funding this project include, CEZ, NRTC,
and NJDCA Balanced Housing. See Exhibit “B” - Project Summary.

Purpose of Resolution: A redevelopment plan is not currently adopted by the City for
North Camden, and thereby, the CRA has no jurisdiction to convey property outside of a
redevelopment area. This Request permits the City to convey property for development
purposes.

Resolution No.: 03-03-10I

     Resolution Title: Resolution Authorizing a Professional Services Agreement with
             Surety Title for Title Services for the 7th & Linden Street Project

Project Summary:

The CRA has entered into a Redevelopment Agreement with the Delaware River Port
Authority in 2001 for a project in North Camden on Blocks 85, 86, 87, & 89 inclusive of
all tax lots. The intent of the agreement was to see these 4 blocks developed into a
commercial/retail center. The CRA was responsible for land assembly. Due to staff
shortages, after the Agreement was signed it was amended to allow the DRPA to perform
some land assembly activities, which they accomplished with that assistance of the NJ
Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. In 2006-07, the CRA had better staff capacity
(including a staff member on loan from NJHMFA who had worked on the project
previously) was again working on site acquisition activities and ordered title and
appraisal on properties that were remaining to be acquired to complete the site. However,
acquisition was never completed.

At this time the DRPA would like for the CRA to complete the acquisition of 7 properties
through negotiated purchase/condemnation. These are vacant lots that are covered by the
North Gateway Redevelopment Plan.

In January 2010, the CRA authorized a contract with Title America for continuation of
title services on this project. However, in February 2010, DRPA requested that CRA
utilize Surety Title Corporation.

Purpose of Resolution: authorize an agreement

Award Process: Non Fair and Open

Cost Not To Exceed: $1,715 to be paid by DRPA via Redevelopment Agreement

Total Project Cost: $1.6 million

Carrie Turner (Resolution #2 of 2 related to 7th & Linden)
Resolution No.: 03-03-10J

  Resolution Title: Resolution Authorizing a Professional Services Agreement with
  Renwick & Associates for Appraisal Services for the 7th & Linden Street Project

Project Summary:

The CRA has entered into a Redevelopment Agreement with the Delaware River Port
Authority in 2001 for a project in North Camden on Blocks 85, 86, 87, & 89 inclusive of
all tax lots. The intent of the agreement was to see these 4 blocks developed into a
commercial/retail center. The CRA was responsible for land assembly. Due to staff
shortages, after the Agreement was signed it was amended to allow the DRPA to perform
some land assembly activities, which they accomplished with that assistance of the NJ
Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. In 2006-07, the CRA had better staff capacity
(including a staff member on loan from NJHMFA who had worked on the project
previously) was again working on site acquisition activities and ordered title and
appraisal on properties that were remaining to be acquired to complete the site. However,
acquisition was never completed.

At this time the DRPA would like for the CRA to complete the acquisition of 7 properties
through negotiated purchase/condemnation. These are vacant lots that are covered by the
North Gateway Redevelopment Plan.

In January 2010, the CRA authorized a contract with Steven W. Bartelt, MAI, for
continuation of appraisal services on this project. However, in February 2010, DRPA
requested that CRA utilize Renwick & Associates.

DRPA will cover the cost of this contract through our Redevelopment Agreement.

Purpose of Resolution: authorize an agreement

Award Process: Non Fair & Open

Cost Not To Exceed: $14,245 to be paid by DRPA via Redevelopment Agreement

Total Project Cost: $1.6 million
