CVA is asking to renew our lease agreement for the 1100 E 11th Street property. We were limited in using the space during the last year, mainly because of the sweltering summer. However, we expect to utilize the space more frequently during the fall season as it would be more appropriate to accommodate patrons.

From: Hartnett, Lauren To: Banker, Courtney Subject: URB update on 11th & 12th NCCD Date: Monday, September 19, 2022 2:47:59 PM Attachments: image001.png On Sept. 15, Council approved 3rd reading of the 12th street NCCD and the Urban Renewal Plan. CM Harper-Madison’s motion was to pass the Urban Renewal Board’s recommendation with changes requested by OCEAN (reinstate all existing uses currently permitted by the NCCD), and conditional use for cocktail lounge limited to 3500 sf. The inclusion of conditional use for cocktail lounge was in response to community feedback the District 1 office received from residents and stakeholders involved with the African American Cultural Heritage District. For a conditional use permit, a property owner must first submit a site plan to staff detailing what they propose to do – and then they have to take that site plan to the planning commission where the community can weigh in. The commission can then add any number of conditions – or can even outright reject it. In the event the neighborhood doesn’t agree with Planning Commission’s decision, they have the opportunity to appeal to council. It is a full public process, with multiple checkpoints – and CM Harper-Madison felt this approach struck the right balance between protecting our neighborhoods from potential nuisances while also allowing the flexibility to support the AACHD’s goals and create walkable neighborhoods with amenities for all residents. Council received testimony from residents both in support and against permitting conditional use for cocktail lounge within the NCCD. In order to further strike a balance with the broad range of opinions expressed at Council, CM Harper-Madison worked with staff to introduce an amendment that further limited conditional use for cocktail lounge to only one permit every 200’. This limited the possibility of the number of potential permits to about 10. However, given the churches on the street, there is only one potential site that could receive a CUP for Cocktail Lounge without Council also granting a waive, so while CM Harper-Madison kept the door open for the possibility to open an establishment that would require a cocktail lounge use permit, it would still be a challenging, multi-step process for a new bar or indoor live music venue to open on 12th Street. The majority of the individuals who testified in opposition to CUP for Cocktail Lounge raised concerns regarding enforcement issues with existing establishments. In response, the District 1 office …

DiverseArts COA Housing and Planning Department DiverseArts/Kenny Dorham’s Backyard multicultural • professional • multidisciplinary arts TO: Mr. Manuel Escobar, Chair Urban Renewal Board CC: Mr. Travis Perlman FROM: Harold McMillan RE: Status of License Agreement Chairman Escobar: Greetings. I am writing to discuss the status of our License Agreement with the URB. As you are aware, our renewal traditionally would be coming up for consideration prior to the end of September 2022. Generally I would be writing to you at this time of the year to request an audience with the Board to formally request a normal renewal of our Agreement. Being keenly aware that this year is also the timeframe within which the URB and AEDC will complete crafting and ultimately releasing the RFP for development of Block 18, I am writing to request renewal that is compatible with the timeline for the RFP process. I am familiar with the RFP process and potential timeline often associated with going from release of the RFP to actual transfer of property to the winning submission. It is our request that our Agreement is renewed for FY 2023 and perhaps amended to include language that indicates that we are aware that the property is subject to sell and/or transfer at some point in the next 12-18 months. We would only ask that there is some accommodation that includes language stating that we would be given ‘reasonable notice and a considerate timeframe’ in which to vacate the premises. It is my hope that this is a reasonable request that is inline with your current thinking on how we move forward. I am not sure of how the internal workings of the URB and Planning and Housing would need to deal with this, other than receipt of this request as our ‘official’ ask. I am resubmitting this request in the event that this issue is an agenda action item at the August meeting and my attendance is requested. Please acknowledge receipt and advise.
