7.Resolution Authorizing the Treasure Island Director to Submit Resolutions of Intent to the Board of Supervisors to Initiate the Formation of a Community Facilities District and Infrastructure and Revitalization Financing District


Bob Beck reviewed the DDA, Financing Plan, and examples of island-wide costs. The approval by the Board of Supervisors of a Resolution of Intent is the first step in the process of forming an Community Facilities District (CFD) or Infrastructure Financing District (IFD).

TIDA will be forming an IFD model known as Infrastructure and Revitalization Financing District (IRFD) which provides greater flexibility and has preferable governance and administrative requirements to other models. IRFD is formed over a specific geographic area, may finance infrastructure with community-wide significance and a useful life of fifteen years or more, may finance affordable housing, and may not finance services.

CFD can fund eligible infrastructure expenses with a useful life of five years or more, and may finance services and maintenance activities. The CFD is expected to provide long-term on-going funding for park and open space operations and maintenance.

Next steps include presenting to Capital Planning Committee on 8/29, introducing IRFD/CFD ROI’s to Board of Supervisors, hold public hearing, take resolutions of formation before the Board of Supervisors, and continuing to work to close the affordable housing funding gap with MOH and working group.

Director Richardson asked about next steps, and requested a list of city general fund costs.

Director Tsen asked about where the public hearing will be located. Answer: At Board of Supervisors. Director Tsen requested regular reports on affordable housing.


Director Richardson moved the item.

Director Dunlop seconded the motion.

This item passed unanimously.
