Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance amends Section 2.178.010 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws to add an additional tract of land to the South Nashville Central Business Improvement District (“SONA CBID”). The SONA CBID was approved by Council on April 17, 2018, pursuant to Ordinance No. BL2018-1140.

 

Central Business Improvement Districts (“CBIDs”) are permitted pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. §7-84-501 et seq. and allow the imposition of an additional assessment on all property located within the area to provide enhanced services. Under state law, a CBID can be established by either a petition of a majority of all real property owners in the proposed district, representing two thirds of the assessed value, or by Council action. The Council has approved the creation of two other CBIDs - one in downtown and a second in the Gulch area. The SONA CBID’s special assessment is primarily used to fund the construction and maintenance of roadways, to fund other improvements within the CBID related to the construction and maintenance of water and sewer infrastructure, and to construct a public greenway.

 

At the time of its creation, the SONA CBID consisted of 12 parcels owned by Century Farms, LLC. Since the adoption of the SONA CBID, Century Farms, LLC has acquired an additional property comprising approximately 2.97 acres. Century Farms, LLC has requested this property be included within the boundaries of the SONA CBID. The ordinance under consideration adds this additional property to the boundaries of the SONA CBID.
