The requested funding will provide for a drainage improvement study to be conducted in the Census Tract 626 area along with some mitigation efforts. ADMINISTRATION: - 1. City staff is requesting $46,302 for oversight and management of the CDBG program. 2. City staff is requesting $1,000 in CDBG admin. for fair housing education and training. - As required by HUD, the City certifies that they must affirmatively further fair housing. This means that the City must have on file an "Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing" (AI). The City must "take appropriate actions to overcome the effects of any impediments." Lastly, there must be records that show what actions were taken. To comply with this certification, staff is requesting $1,000 for fair housing education and training to citizens of Cocoa. 3. City staff is requesting $10,404 for oversight and management of the HOME program. HOME and CHDO funds: 1. Community Housing Initiatives, Inc. proposes to provide an infill housing program, to acquire vacant lots and construct single family homes for sale to low-income and very low-income households. The City has contracted with this Agency for the past three (3) years. To date. three (3) homes have been constructed and five (5) are currently under construction. Two (2) of the homes are anticipated to be completed by early March. Two (2) additional lots have been purchased and are waiting construction. All funds have been expended from the FY03/04 and FY04/05 contracts. see Attachment 2. The Committee recommends HOME and CHDO funding in the amount of $93.640. The Agency has been providing a much needed service to low and very- low income families looking to purchase their first home in Cocoa. Four (4) new homes will be constructed with these funds. 2. \!.) National Church Residences proposes to provide senior housing to 48 very- low income persons. The three (3) story, 48 one (1) bedroom units will be the elderly, rental phase of the Magnolia Pointe project. The Agency responded to a question from the CAB's last meeting. see Attachment 3. The Committee does not recommend funding. Although, the Committee feels this is an excellent project, the City of Cocoa partnered with Brevard County, Melbourne, Palm Bay and Titusville to support rental projects through the $4.2 million dollars Hurricane Housing Recovery (HHR) Request for Proposals (RFP). On January 24th. they were awarded $1.104.135 from the HHR grant. On January 18th. $347.500 in Brownfields Economic Development Initiative (BEDI) funds were awarded. The Diamond Square Redevelopment Agency also committed $250.000 to the Housing Authority. $25.000 annually over a ten year period. In addition. the City has requested $1.390.000 in Section 108 Loan funds on behalf of the Ma~molia Pointe proiect. This totals $3.091.635 million dollars in City support for the elderly rental and commercial phase. The committee recommends using HOME funds for homeownership. 3. Central Florida Community Development Corporation proposes to provide an infill housing program, to acquire vacant lots and construct single family homes for sale to low-income and very low-income households. The City has contracted with this Agency for the past two (2) years. To date. no homes have been constructed. A 1.24 acre lot was acquired on January 19th, Since an environmental review was not requested prior to acquisition. no funds have been expended from either the FY04/05 or the FY05/06 contract. One (1) property on Thomas Lane was donated to the Agency in April 2005. no construction has started. Mr. Chester expressed concern over the City's delay in permitting. The City's Building Official provided documentation regardina the delay. see Attachment 4: October 1, 2004 A ril 2005 October 1, 2005 October 21, 2005 November 22,2005 December 21, 2005 Janua 19,2006 Februa 2, 2006 Februa 15, 2006 The Committee does not recommend funding at this time. In-fill housing is a much needed service to low- and very low- income families looking to purchase their first home in Cocoa. Unfortunately, the Agency's lack of construction and expenditure of funds is putting the City at risk of noncompliance with HOME and CDBG funds. The committee feels that no funds should be awarded to this Agency until funds have been expended and homes have been constructed in compliance with the two (2) contracts. According to the FY04/05 Contract timeline, four (4) homes should have been acquired and constructed by December 2005. 4. Low Income Housing & Community Development Inc. (L1HCD) proposes to provide an infill housing program to acquire one (1) vacant lot and construct a single family home for sale to a very low-income households. Also, one single story and one 2 story building at 223 Stone Street will be acquired and rehabbed for rental occupancy. Since the January 25th CAB meeting. concerns were raised as to whether L1HCD owned the properties as Mr. Betts stated three (3) times in his presentation. I requested that Mr. Betts clarify this issue. On the same day. the City received a request to demo the existin9 units at 223 Stone by Mt. Moriah AME Church. In discussions. with a church representative, it is Mt. Moriah's desire to retain the property. demolish the 3 units and build a home for their pastor. see Attachment 5. The Committee does not recommend funding. L1HCD does not own the property and the current owner does not intend to sell it nor use it for the intent L1HCD proposes in his application to the City.

As. you. know, there was a question about the amount of the total cost of the program that I was unable to answer the evening of the presentations. After speaking .with our Comptroller, it was clear what the numbers reflected. We include our entire budget (Seniors Assistance Program not all of Community Services Council) in the grant packet. This includes the federal funding we receive from the Department of Elder Affairs via the Area Agency on Aging. On the City of Cocoa, CDBG forms, the "Non-City of Cocoa" amount only includes local funding, specifically, United Way funding, Brevard County's CBO funding, and local program income. If the Board would like us to make any changes to the current or for future proposals please let me know. In speaking \Y1.th Kathryn Fridl the follo-wing. day, she proposed the idea of utilizing subcontractors to perform the work needed in the community instead of employing our handymen, which would provide a savings in Fringe Benefits. Although we are certainly open to suggestions for improvement, the challenges of sustaining local contractors would probably be a hardship to the seniors we serve. Most of our clients require small tasks and need them completed fairly quickly and on a consistent basis. In addition, due to Brevard's coastline and the fact that we are continually vulnerable to hurricanes and other storms, we believe this approach may not be a viable one. If the Board has any additional questions, or would like to discuss this further, please feel free to give either myself or our President, Cindy Flachmeier, a call at 639-8770.

From: Sent: To: Subject: Ken .3chaefer [KSchaefer@ncr.org] Moncay, January 30, 2006 12:54 PM Nancy Dresser Magnolia Pointe presentation Dear Nancy, Please allow me to clarify one of my responses to a question posed at last weeks presentations. I was asked whether we would allow a thirteen year old in a unit if there was already a person aged 55 or older residing in the unit. My response was that we would. While we are constrained by the various fair housing laws and regulations, the nature of the development all but precludes this possibility. All of the units at Magnolia Pointe will be one bedroom units which in itself would lead to the elimination of possibility. NCR has a long history of abiding by fair housing regulations while being able to provide our residents with the best community available. I do not anticipate many, if any, underage residents.

Box 555614 Orlando, FL 32805 Dear Mr. Betts: During your presentation on Wednesday, January 25, 2006, to the Citizen's Advisory Board (CAB), you stated that you owned all the properties that you were requesting funding for. Those properties are 223 Stone Street and a vacant lot on the 300 block of Stone Street. During the board questioning period, I made a statement that Mt. Moriah owned the property and you clarified to the board that you own all the properties. After your presentation, a member of the Citizen's Advisory Board (CAB) requested that you provide proof of ownership of the rental property that you plan to rehab at 223 Stone and also the property on the 300 block of Stone Street that you plan to construct a home on. Copy of title or HUD1 statement for both properties can be faxed to me at (321) 639-7619. If you could provide this to me by Monday, February 6th, I will include this in their follow-up packet to the board. We appreciate your efforts in providing affordable housing to families that are low- and very- low income and look forward to your continued success within our community.
