Tom Pawlina, Planning Board Chairman, says the board reviewed the notes of the public hearing and addressed all of the issues that were raised. The Planning Board's subcommittee addressed those issues and generated a letter to the Board of Aldermen dated 8 June 2004 and attached the proposed amendment.
Alderman Conn says his principal question is whether or not the city should have an incentive buyout provision in the ordinance. He asks what area affordable housing professionals think about it. Tom Pawlina says the Planning Board has had public meetings on this subject since November 2002, and many of those meetings were attended by specialists in the field.
Tom Pawlina says they have looked at issues surrounding it and have obtained copies of trust documents from other communities. That is as far as they've gotten because they do not want to presume that it will pass. Alderman Conn says a tremendous amount of work has gone into this, and the city is lucky to have some high-powered experts in the field come forward and offer a significant amount of input.
Alderman Boisselle says that at the public hearing there was discussion about a formula to calculate the monetary incentive awarded to developers. Tom Pawlina says the formula on the table at the public hearing was still in process. After the hearing the Planning Board checked what other communities do, and as a result the language in the amendment was changed to 2% of the total sale or market value of all the units in the development. That number is comparable with other communities, which varies from 3%, to $10,000.00 per unit to $7.00 per square foot. The Planning Board thought that a percentage is clearer, and what the units sell for is on record. Alderman Boisselle says the developer can either pay a monetary contribution or build affordable housing units. Tom Pawlina says it is not the developer's choice to make.
Tom Pawlina says the Planning Board looked at the entity itself and considered the advantages and disadvantages.
Tom Pawlina says the Board of Appeals currently grants special permits for any project needing more than four parking spaces.
Tom Pawlina says they talked about the advantages of the percentage being higher or lower and thought that a higher Melrosian percentage would exclude families from other cities from moving in.
Tom Pawlina says The Planning Board took into consideration a suggestion made at the public hearing and requests a revision to §B.3 by deleting three words - for each unit - in the sentence "The monetary contribution for each unit shall be determined..." They are looking only for a 2% contribution of the total sale price of the project, regardless of the number of units.
Tom Pawlina says he does not believe they have the flexibility to toy with that.
