Summary of Proposed Amendments
1) Amendments to 2019 Action Plan - HOME Affordable Senior Housing Development Project
a) Canceled Activity - 3129 7 Avenue North - "Golden/Prairie Ridge" - Craig Properties, LLC
As per notification from the developer, this activity's timeline has been delayed and withdrawn from 2019 award funds. It may be considered for a future HUD HOME activity. The $350,000 in HOME funds for this activity will be reallocated, see amendment #1(b).
b) Project site/activities/budge identified - 4462 30 Avenue South - "Elliott Place" - Fargo Housing and Redevelopment
Activities include construction of a multifamily senior rental housing complex consisting of two buildings in partnership with Fargo Housing and Redevelopment Authority. The proposed HOME allocation for this activity is $350,000 in reallocated 2019 HOME funds, see amendment #1(a).
c) Revision of Contingency Language
A 2019 Action Plan amendment approved at the October 7, 2019 Fargo City Commission meeting stated if any other HOME Affordable Senior Housing Development activity were to be canceled, HomeField 3 would be funded up to the full request of $515,000. In place of this, this amendment proposes reallocating HOME funds to Elliott Place as indicated above, rather than HomeField 3.
