Amending Saint Paul's 2014 Capital Investment Bonding Priorities to Include the Dorothy Day ReVision.
Body
WHEREAS, on June 19, 2013, the City of Saint Paul approved a list of ranked capital investment bonding priorities for the 2014 legislative session, as required by state law; and
WHEREAS, that list ranked the following projects in order: 1) Minnesota Children's Museum; 2) Como Access and Circulation Improvements; 3) The Historic Palace Theater Renovations; 4) Twin Cities Public Television Renovations; 5) Regional Public Safety Facility in Saint Paul; 6) Great River Passage River Recreation & Environmental Education Center; and 7) Como Seals and Sea Lions Exhibit Renewal; and
WHEREAS, the City of Saint Paul has partnered with Ramsey County, Catholic Charities and the Mayor's Overnight Shelter Task Force in support of $22,000,000 in state bond funding for a new shelter and daytime service center facility located in Saint Paul to serve homeless individuals from throughout the region and the state; and
WHEREAS, since 1981, Catholic Charities' Dorothy Day Center has been the East Metro area's primary response to single adult homelessness.  Today, the Dorothy Day Center is over-crowded and is forced to turn people away from a building that is deteriorating; and
WHEREAS, the City of Saint Paul has agreed to serve as the fiscal agent for any bonding appropriation received from the state for this new shelter and daytime service center project; and
WHEREAS, the state has requested the City submit a resolution identifying the priority ranking of the new shelter and daytime service center; and
WHEREAS, the new shelter and daytime service center is ranked #8 on the City's ranked bonding priority list for the 2014 legislative session; now therefore be it
