a.         ORDER 03-10-29-1H/In the Matter of Entering into a Loan Agreement with the Network for Oregon Affordable Housing  ("NOAH") for Permanent Financing of the Sheldon Village (Phase II) Affordable Housing Development, Eugene, Oregon.

 

            Jim McCoy, HACSA, reported that this board order represents the last action of the development portion for Sheldon Village Phase II.  He said Sheldon Village has a total of 78 units located near Sheldon High School.  He added it is the final piece of the financing that includes the City of Eugene home funds, proceeds from the sale of federal tax credits that they received through the State of Oregon and a loan from NOAH.

 

            Gallagher commented that it was a beautiful complex.

 

            MOTION:  to approve ORDER 03-10-29-1H.

b.         ORDER 03-10-29-2H/In the Matter of Accepting a Bid and Awarding Contract #03-C-0066 for the Laurelwood Reconstruction: Phase Four.

 

            Don Williams, HACSA, said that this particular phase (Phase Four) is out of about eight anticipated phases.  He added it is totally funded out of their capital fund that is controlled by HUD.  He said the amount of dollars HUD gives controls how fast they could do the work.  He noted the current plan is less than seven phases.  He said they are doing a phase every six to seven months.  He said the project in Laurelwood is the oldest housing stock owned by the Housing Authority built in 1961.

 

            Williams explained the prices (considering the rise in the price of lumber) were reasonable and they were pleased.

 

            Morrison had concerns about the vinyl siding holding up.

 

            Williams responded that the vinyl siding had improved and will be more pliable than the old siding. He added if they have damage, they could pop a piece out of the middle.

 

            MOTION:  to move ORDER 03-10-19-2H.
