                     1.1                     Findings.  The HRA hereby finds, determines and declares as follows:

 

                                          (a)                     The issuance and sale of the Bonds by the HRA, pursuant to the Act, is in the best interest of the HRA and the City, and the HRA hereby determines to issue the Bonds and to sell the Bonds to Greater Minnesota Housing Fund, or another financial institution selected by the Borrower (the “Lender”).  The HRA will loan the proceeds of the Bonds (the “Loan”) to the Borrower in order to finance the Project.

 

                                          (b)                     Pursuant to a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) to be entered into between the HRA and the Borrower, the Borrower will agree to repay the Loan in specified amounts and at specified times sufficient to pay in full when due the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Bonds.  In addition, the Loan Agreement contains provisions relating to the construction, maintenance and operation of the Project, indemnification, insurance, and other agreements and covenants which are required or permitted by the Act and which the HRA and Borrower deem necessary or desirable for the financing of the Project.

 

                                          (c)                     Pursuant to an Assignment of Loan Agreement between the HRA, the Borrower and the Lender (the “Assignment of Loan Agreement”), the HRA will pledge and grant a security interest in all of its rights, title, and interest in the Loan Agreement to the Lender (except for certain rights of indemnification and to reimbursement for certain costs and expenses)

 

                                          (d)                     The obligations of the Borrower under the Loan Agreement and payment of amounts due under the Bonds will be secured by certain security instruments required by the Lender and in forms authorized by the Borrower to be executed by or on behalf of the Borrower in favor of the Lender, which may include:  (i) a mortgage or security agreement granting a mortgage lien or security interest with respect to the Project or any portion thereof to the Lender or to the HRA and assigned to the Lender pursuant to an Assignment of Mortgage to be executed by the HRA (the “Mortgage Assignment”); (ii) one or more collateral assignments of the contracts between the Borrower and the architect and contractor with respect to the Project; (iii) one or more security agreements, guaranty agreements, and indemnity agreements; and (iv) other security documents that are intended to ensure timely payment of the loan and the Bonds (collectively, the “Security Documents”).

 

                                          (e)                     In addition, the obligations of the Borrower under the Loan Agreement and payment of amounts due under the Bonds will be further secured by certain security instruments required by the Lender and in forms authorized by the Borrower to be executed by or on behalf of the Borrower in favor of the Lender which may include a Collateral Assignment of Tax Increment Revenue Note from the Borrower to the Lender (the “TIF Assignment”) granting a security interest in the HRA’s Taxable Tax Increment Revenue Note, Series (Emma Norton/Restoring Waters Project) (the “TIF Note”) to be issued by the HRA to the Borrower in accordance with the Development Agreement.

 

                                          (f)                     As determined by the Lender, the proceeds of the Bonds may be disbursed pursuant to a Disbursing Agreement (the “Disbursing Agreement”) by and among the Lender, Borrower and a title insurance company.

 

                                          (g)                     Certain requirements of federal and state law which require that a portion of the housing units in the Project be occupied by families of low and moderate income are set forth in a Regulatory Agreement (the “Regulatory Agreement”) by and among the HRA, Borrower and the Lender.

 

                                          (h)                     Certain requirements of the City and the HRA that apply to the Project are set forth in a Bond Compliance Agreement between the HRA and the Borrower (the “Bond Compliance Agreement”)

 

                                          (i)                     The Bonds will be special, limited revenue obligations of the HRA.  The Bonds shall not be payable from or a charge upon any funds other than the revenues pledged to the payment thereof, nor shall the HRA or the City be subject to any liability thereon.  No holder of any of the Bonds shall ever have the right to compel any exercise of the taxing power of the HRA or the City to pay the Bonds or the interest thereon, nor to enforce payment thereof against any property of the HRA or the City.  None of the Bonds shall constitute a debt of the HRA or the City within the meaning of any constitutional, charter or statutory limitation.

 

                                          (j)                     It is desirable, feasible and consistent with the objects and purposes of the Act to issue the Bonds for the purpose of financing the costs of the Project.

 

                                          (k)                     The Project constitutes a “qualified residential rental project” within the meaning of Section 142(d) of the Code, and a “multifamily housing development” authorized by the Act, and furthers the purposes of the Act.

 

                                          (l)                     The purpose of the Project is, and the effect thereof will be, to promote the public welfare by the acquisition, construction and equipping of a facility for use as a multifamily housing development designed primarily for occupancy by persons of low and moderate income.

 

                                          (m)                     The Act authorizes (i) the acquisition, construction  and equipping of the Project, (ii) the issuance and sale of the Bonds, (iii) the execution and delivery by the HRA of related documents and the performance of all covenants and agreements of the HRA contained therein, and (iv) the performance of all other acts and things required under the constitution and laws of the State of Minnesota to make the Bonds and such agreements valid and binding obligations of the HRA in accordance with its terms.

 

                                          (n)                     It is desirable that the Borrower be authorized, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Loan Agreement, which terms and conditions the HRA determines to be necessary, desirable and proper, to complete the acquisition, construction and installation of the Project by such means as shall be available to the Borrower and in the manner determined by the Borrower, and with or without advertisement for bids as required for the acquisition and installation of municipal facilities.

 

                                          (o)                     The payments under the Loan Agreement are fixed to produce revenue sufficient to provide for the prompt payment of principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Bonds, when due, and the Loan Agreement also provides that the Borrower (or its general partner) is required to pay all expenses of the operation and maintenance of the Project, including, but without limitation, adequate insurance thereon and insurance against all liability for injury to persons or property arising from the operation thereof, and all taxes and special assessments levied upon or with respect to the Project and payable during the term of the Loan Agreement.

 

                                          (p)                     The HRA hereby finds, determines and declares that it is in the public interest of the residents of the City that the Project be undertaken in order to further the public purposes of redeveloping blighted property and increasing the supply of decent, safe, and sanitary rental housing units available to residents of the City.

 

                     1.2                     Authorization and Ratification of Project.  The HRA does hereby authorize the Borrower, in accordance with the provisions of the Act and subject to the terms and conditions imposed by the Lender, to provide for the acquisition, construction and equipping of the Project by such means as shall be available to the Borrower and in the manner determined by the Borrower, and without advertisement for bids as may be required for the construction and acquisition of other municipal facilities; and the HRA hereby ratifies, affirms, and approves all actions heretofore taken by the Borrower consistent with and in anticipation of such authority.
