BACKGROUND
No one could foresee the impacts of COVID-19 on the Farmington commercial Real Estate Market. While the market is still viable, the anticipated Office Mixed Use development predicted in 2018 in both projects areas has been set back. Farmington is hardly an isolated case as made apparent by the actions of the Utah State Legislature in S.B. 6001 Community Reinvestment Agency Modifications - which was passed in the 2020 Legislative Session that facilitates addressing the market slowdown in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) jurisdictions. This Senate Bill allows a community reinvestment agency to extend for up to two years the collection period for certain project areas impacted by the COVID-19 emergency - Which according the criteria outlined in the bill we qualify for.

The legislature’s response to addressing economic impacts of COVID impacts to RDA’s is appreciated by Farmington City, and as it was one of the few bills passed this spring directly leveled at addressing the COVID impacts to TIF jurisdictions, this action makes clear the need. The two-year extension was not enough to address Farmington’s own particular needs. Our market demand requires three years and we know this from the agreement for the development of land that we entered into with Stack Real Estate in October 2020 which specifically stated that the city would pursue trigger extensions with each of the taxing entities.

Presenter:  Mayor Jim Talbot, Mr. Brigham Mellor

Presenter:  Dr. Logan Toone
Description:  Recommend Board approval. 
2.F.8. Building F2 Remodel GMP - Phase 1 (exhibit) 
Presenter:  Mr. Craig Carter
Description:  The existing Transportation Department offices in Building F2 are inadequate.  The vacant space in the northwest corner of Building F2 will be remodeled to accommodate new open office layout for the Transportation Department, lounge space and restrooms for bus drivers, lounge space and restrooms for the mechanics, and a new training room to accommodate 300 people.  Along with that, the northeast corner of the building will be converted into office space to house Early Childhood, Federal Programs, and Custodial Services Departments.  Stout Building Contractors has bid out the remodel to subcontractors and established a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for the first phase of the project.  The second phase is the parking lot remodel west of Building G4 and will be bid at a later date.  Construction will begin on Phase One immediately and is expected to be complete in June of 2021.
2.F.9. Bountiful High Stadium Remodel Architect Selection (exhibit) 
Presenter:  Mr. Craig Carter
Description:  The wind storm that hit Davis County on September 8th toppled one of the stadium light poles on the Bountiful High football field.  The remaining three poles were evaluated by a structural engineer who recommended that they should be removed due to safety concerns.  Bountiful High School will need new lights for the next school year which will be bid at a later time.  The running track eventually need to be remodeled to accommodate an 8-lane track.  This will require the shifting of the football field and bleachers to fit everything. Due to the large concrete foundations that need to be installed to support new poles, an architect will design the entire stadium and determine the correct location of the light poles. The Professional Services Selection Committee evaluated proposals from six architectural firms.  Design work will begin immediately with a light pole bid package to be issued this spring.  The rest of the stadium renovations will wait until funding is available.
