2. Consent Calendar.
a. Consider approval of a Subordination Agreement with Zions Bank for the Riverwalk Village affordable housing development.
BACKGROUND and RECOMMENDATION: The purpose of the subordination agreement is to provide the construction lender on the Riverwalk property the right to foreclose the property if Riverwalk defaults on the loan. The subordination agreement preserves the rent restrictions and the City's right to have a receiver appointed if the rent restrictions are violated. The only right the City will be giving up is the right to foreclose on the property if the rent restrictions are violated, and only if that violation occurs after the lender forecloses. The subordination agreement obligates the lender to notify the City of any default, which would allow the City to evaluate whether to step in and cure the default to preserve the City's right to foreclose in case of a violation of the rent restrictions. The lender will not lend without this subordination agreement. Staff recommends approval.
b. Consider approval of an amended Professional Service Agreement with West Coast Code Consultants (WC3) for structural plan review.
BACKGROUND and RECOMMENDATION: The City utilizes three (3) consultants for building and structural review for commercial building permits.
