Title

AN ORDINANCE authorizing the executive to enter into an interlocal agreement with the city of Seattle to permit Capitol Hill Housing Improvement Program to exercise its chartered authority in unincorporated King County.

Body

STATEMENT OF FACTS:

1.  The city of Seattle chartered Capitol Hill Housing Improvement Program ("CHHIP") in 1976 as a corporation, and its current purpose is to assist homeowners, property owners, residential tenants, and residents of the Capitol Hill community and such other areas as approved by the CHHIP board of directors in preserving, improving and restoring the quality of their homes, property and neighborhood, and to provide additional housing, cultural, social and economic opportunities and facilities.

2.  CHHIP has a long history of successfully fulfilling its purpose both inside and outside its Capitol Hill boundaries, including a prior affordable housing project in unincorporated King County in which CHHIP partnered with the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association and the White Center Community Development Association to secure tax credit equity for the SOPI Village affordable housing project.

3.  CHHIP desires to work with community-based partners in unincorporated King County to provide affordable housing, cultural, social and economic opportunities and facilities.

4.  RCW 35.21.740 provides that a public development authority may not operate outside of the boundaries of the establishing city unless that city enters into an agreement with another city or county.

5.  Seattle Municipal Code section 3.110.170.B. states, "If authorized by its charter to do so, a public corporation may undertake projects and activities or perform acts outside the limits of the City only in those areas of another jurisdiction whose governing body by agreement with the City consents thereto," and the CHHIP charter so authorizes.

6.  It is in the interests of King County to permit CHHIP to engage in mission-driven projects that provide affordable housing and community development in unincorporated King County.

                     BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KING COUNTY:

                     SECTION 1.  The King County executive is hereby authorized to enter into an interlocal agreement with the city of Seattle for the purpose of permitting Capitol Hill Housing Improvement Program, a public corporation chartered by Seattle, to develop affordable housing and community development projects located outside the Seattle

limits in the unincorporated areas of the county.  The agreement shall be in substantially the form of Attachment A to this ordinance.
