Economic Development Corporation – Sunset Manor Inc. Project


Motion:           To adopt the resolution which includes the following as per the attorney letter, as recommended by the Finance Committee:

  1. Approving the “Project Area” designated as such by the EDC, which is the legal description of Sunset’s entire Waterford Place Campus.
  2. Approving a “Project District Area” with the same legal description as the Project Area, in recognition of the fact that the area surrounding the Project Area will not be significantly affected by the Project (all activity being conducted on property already owned by Sunset).

  5. Setting a public hearing date for a public hearing on the “Project Plan” to be recommended to the Township Board by the EDC at its next meeting, and direct the publication of notice of such hearing, as required by the EDC Act, in the form of notice provided by the EDC’s Bond Counsel.
