Bergen, Esq. Gill and Chamas PO Box 760 Woodbridge, New Jersey 07095 Re: Proposal for Professional Planning Services Area In Need of Redevelopment Assessment Minue Street Redevelopment Area Block 2702, Lots 2, 3, 10, 11, & 12, Block 2701, Lots 6-13 misc. streets and right-of- ways and such other contiguous properties that may be appropriate for consideration Our file #A04l38 Dear Mayor Reiman and Mr. Bergen, It is our understanding the Borough of Carteret desires an assessment of the captioned area in order to comply with the requirements of The New Jersey Urban Redevelopment Act and prepare an "Area in Need of Redevelopment" report. In the eyent the area is deemed to qualifY as an area in need of redevelopment, the Borough seeks to solicit expressions of interest fTom qualified entities in order to develop a comprehensive redevelopment plan and implementation strategies. Towards that end, we are pleased to submit the following proposal for your reyiew and consideration: Backeround: The New Jersey Urban Redevelopment Act created the New Jersey Redevelopment Authority (NJRA) in 1996 to spearhead economic development efforts in New Jersey communities. The Act requires locations under consideration as "Redevelopment Areas" to undergo a preliminary investigation to determine whether certain lands in the designated location meet the criteria for consideration as a "Redevelopment Area" in accordance with the Local Redevelopment and Housing Law (N.J.S.A. 40A:12 A-2 et seq.). Designation as a "Redevelopment Area" enhances the economic incentive to pursue opportunities within the designated district and empowers the redevelopment agency with enhanced authority to enact the plan. The availability of the various programs offered by the NJRA within "Redevelopment Areas" further reinforces investment - opportunities. Pursuant to NJ.S.A. 40A: l2A-6a, no area of a municipality shall be determined a redevelopment area unless the governing body of the municipality shall, by resolution, authorize the planning board to undertake a preliminary investigation to determine whether the proposed area meets the criteria for a redevelopment designation as set forth in the Act. The Local Redevelopment and Housing Law (40A:12A-5) requires that at least one of the following conditions be met for an area to be found in need of redevelopment: 1. The generality of the buildings in the area are substandard, unsafe, unsanitary, dilapidated, or obsolescent, or possess any of these characteristics, or are so lacking in light, air or space that they are conducive to unwholesome living or working conditions; or 2. The discontinuance of the use of buildings previously used for commercial, manufacturing, or industrial purposes; the abandonment of such buildings; or the same being allowed to fall into so great a state of disrepair as to be untenantable; or 3. Land that is owned by the municipality, the county, a local housing authority, redevelopment agency or redevelopment entity, or unimproved vacant land that has remained so for a period of ten years prior to adoption of the resolution, and that by reason of its location, remoteness, lack of means of access to developed sections or portions of the municipality, or topography, or nature of the soil, is not likely to be developed through the instrumentality of private capital; or 4. Areas with buildings or improvements which, by reason of dilapidation, obsolescence, overcrowding, faulty arrangement, or design, lack of ventilation, light and sanitary facilities, excessive land coverage, deleterious land use or obsolete layout, or and combination of these or other factors, are detrimental to the safety, health, morals, or welfare of the community; or 5. A growing lack or total lack of proper utilization of areas caused by the condition of the title, diverse ownership of the real property therein or other conditions, resulting in a stagnant or not fully productive condition of the land potentially useful and valuable for contributing to and serving the public health, safety and welfare; or 6. Areas, in excess of fiye contiguous acres, whereon buildings or improvements haye been destroyed, consumed by fire, demolished or altered by the action of storm, fire, cyclone, tornado, earthquake or other casualty in such a way that the aggregate assessed value of the area has been materially depreciated; or 7. In any municipality in which an enterprise zone has been designated pursuant to the "New Jersey Urban Enterprise Zones Act," P.L.1983, c.303 (C.52:27H-60 et seq.) the execution of the actions prescribed in that act for the adoption by the municipality and approval by the New Jersey Urban Enterprise Zone Authority of the zone development plan for the area of the enterprise zone shall be considered sufficient for the determination that the area is in need of redevelopment pursuant to sections 5 and 6 of P.L.1992, c.79 (C.40A:12A-5 and 40A:12A-6) for the purpose of granting tax exemptions within the - enterprise zone district pursuant to the provisions ofP.L.199l, c.43l (C.40A:20-l et seq.) or the adoption of a tax abatement and exemption ordinance pursuant to the provisions of P.L. 1991, c.44l (C.40A:2l-l et seq.). The municipality shall not utilize any other redeyelopment powers within the urban enterprise zone unless the municipal governing body and planning board have also taken the actions and fulfilled the requirements prescribed in P.L.1992, c.79 (C.40A:12A-l et al.) for determining that the area in need of redevelopment or an area in need of rehabilitation and the municipal governing body has adopted a redevelopment plan ordinance including the area of the enterprise zone; or 8. The designation of the delineated area is consistent with smart growth planning principles adopted pursuant to law or regulation. The designation of a redevelopment area can only be done with the cooperation of the Carteret Borough Council since no area of a municipality shall be determined a redevelopment area unless the governing body of the municipality shall, by resolution, authorize the planning board to undertake a preliminary inyestigation to determine whether the proposed area meets the criteria for a redevelopment designation as set forth in the Act. Scope of Services A. Area in Need of Redeyelopment Assessment and Entity RFO Upon authorization to proceed, Beacon will commence a preliminary investigation of the captioned properties and prepare a report of our findings. The area under consideration for designation as redevelopment area will be surveyed visually. Existing land uses will be established for the study area as well as adjacent neighborhoods. Preliminary boundaries will be established. Properties within the boundaries will be evaluated in the context of meeting the established objectives. Properties will be inventoried with recommendations for their role in the redeyelopment effort. Each property will be reviewed under C.40A:12A-5 and our conclusions will be presented in tabular form with supporting documentation and/or photographs. Beacon will also prepare a map (utilizing existing surveyor tax map data) showing the boundaries of the proposed redevelopment area and the location of the various parcels of property included therein. The designation report will include a comprehensiye list and description of properties within the area under investigation, an inventory of land uses within the study area and a list of property owners within the study area (prepared fTom Municipal tax records). Upon assignment of the Mayor and Council, Beacon will present our findings at a public hearing before the Carteret Planning Board. Notices to interested or affected persons shall be the responsibility of the Planning Board. Beacon will participate in the public meetings in order to support the findings of the assessment and to respond to questions or comments fTom those members of the board or public in attendance. Upon completion of hearings on this matter, the board is obligated to make recommendation to the Mayor and Council. Beacon will attend the subsequent meeting of the governing body in order to address any questions regarding the designation prior to the governing body adopting a resolution determining that the delineated area, or any part thereof, is a redevelopment area. - If the property is determined to qualify as an area in of redevelopment, Beacon, in conjunction with your redevelopment counsel, will prepare a request for qualifications (RFQ) package. The solicitation package will seek to qualify private entiti es capable of undertaking the redevelopment effort prior to the approval of the redevelopment plan. Beacon will assist Carteret by developing qualification criteria and benchmarks. Beacon will assist Carteret in the evaluation of RFQ responses, the selection of a qualified party, and the execution of a preliminary designation as a qualified entity. It is anticipated that Beacon will work with Carteret's redevelopment counsel with respect to the form of designation and specific designation language. The scope of our services anticipates attendance at two Borough Planning Board meetings to present our findings, one Council meeting, and one meeting to present preliminary findings to Borough officials. Beacon will attend all other meetings on this matter on an as needed basis on a Time and Materials basis. Our proposal assumes reasonable access to the parcels in order to visually evaluate the property and the availability of certain background data such as property owner lists, tax maps, current zoning information, and the like. Our services will be provided on a lump sum fee basis pursuant to the General Terms and Conditions attached hereto and incorporated into this proposal for professional services. Our fee for the redevelopment assessment and the subsequent meeting attendance defined above will as follows: An Area in Need of Redeyelopment Report and RFQ: $ 5,000.00 In addition, ordinary reimbursable expenses such a photocopying, reproduction, ordinance purchase, and oyernight mail will be billed pursuant to the attached Schedule of Hourly Rates. B. Redevelopment Plan Upon establishing the acceptable boundary for the redevelopment area and the selection of a qualified entity, a comprehensive redevelopment plan will be prepared and submitted to the Council for review and consideration. 1) Preparation of the Redevelopment Plan will include developing a list of marketable uses for the designated area based on location, available land within the existing street configuration, and determining the need for street modifications or property acquisitions in order to execute the objectives of the plan. Remaining buildings will be assessed for adaptability to each plan and marketable uses within the context of each plan. Carteret may desire an environmental eyaluation of the designated area at this time in order to identifY any locations that may require remediation and estimate costs associated with same. 2) Beacon will present the Redevelopment Plans to the Council. The presentation will include a land use plan and recommendations with respect to design elements within the redevelopment area such to achieye the desired streetscape, project elements, project scale, project appearance, and density. The presentation will also include - schematic concept design indicative of the plan elements, location, and integration with existing neighborhoods. For purposes of the presentation to the Council, the plan will be prepared on "D" size paper (24" x 36"). A streetscape yiew may also be prepared to indicate and emphasize various desired architectural components and project scale. 3) Upon consideration of the Council, the Redevelopment Plan will be remanded to the Planning Board for consideration and comment. The Planning Board may request comments from the public prior to forwarding recommendations to the Council. Upon receipt of the Planning Board's comments, the Council would request comments fTom the public and make their final determination with respect to the Redevelopment Plan. It is assumed the Carteret will prepare the requisite public notices pursuant to statute. 4) Once the designation report and redevelopment plan have been approved, the Borough Councilor designated Redevelopment Agency assumes the management role for plan implementation. Beacon will include a set of short term and longer-term action steps for implementation of the Redevelopment Study recommendations. Action steps will be adjusted, if necessary, based on community feedback. 5) Beacon will be available on an as needed basis to the Borough of Carteret throughout the designation, plan approval and plan implementation process for any desired services outside the scope ofthis proposal.

Action steps will be adjusted, if necessary, based on community feedback. 2) Beacon will be available on an as needed basis to the Borough of Carteret throughout the plan implementation process.
