Recommended for Council is the publication of a notice of intent to issue general obligation capital improvement bonds in the maximum principal amount of $15,500,000.00 for the purpose of financing capital project costs that will include various street, bikeway, sidewalk, streetlight, utility, landscaping and infrastructure improvements and pedestrian amenities in the downtown development area, including Huron Street (between Chapin/Third and Division), First and Ashley Streets (between Madison and Kingsley), and William Street (between Third and State Streets).

The bonds are planned to be repaid in full by the DDA, as a contractual obligation to the City, from the DDA's tax increment revenues received pursuant to Act 197, Public Acts of Michigan, 1975, as amended, and from certain revenues of the City's parking system as managed by the DDA.

The City's bond counsel, Dykema Gossett, prepared the attached notice with further review by the City Attorney.
