§                     On August 27, 2018, City Council adopted the Housing Charlotte Framework, which recommends leveraging City-owned land and expanding the supply of high-quality affordable housing by building new affordable housing and preserving existing affordable housing.

§                     These City-owned properties along Isenhour Street, Patch Avenue, and Wainwright Avenue, contain approximately 0.3837 acres combined, are zoned R-8 (residential), and located in Council District 1.

§                     JCB Urban Company, a private builder, proposes to purchase the properties to construct four for-sale affordable townhome units. JCB Urban Company agrees that all of the units will be sold to House Charlotte eligible households earning 80 percent or below the Area Median Income.

§                     The affordable units will have a 15-year affordability deed restriction and shall be developed within three years from the date of deed conveyance.

§                     If JCB Urban Company fails to develop within said time period, the properties shall be conveyed back to the City upon its request.

§                     The Planning Commission reviewed the property for surplus sale on April 20, 2021, and recommended the sale with no comments.

§                     The properties were appraised on August 20, 2021, at $86,000.

-                     Purchase price of $90,000,

-                     Due diligence period of 90 days, and

-                     Closing to occur within 60 days after the expiration of the due diligence period.
