RESOLUTION 01-2014
Confirmatory Resolution to Amend the Boundaries of the
Southeast Economic Development Area
WHEREAS the City of Goshen recently annexed certain undeveloped real estate generally located north of
Davis Drive, south of Kercher Road, east of Dierdorff Road, and west of Sourwood Drive in which any new
development will benefit from projects in the Southeast Economic Development Plan;
WHEREAS the City of Goshen recently annexed certain real estate generally located north of County Road
40, south of Hackberry Drive, east of Corrie Drive, and west of US Highway 33 in which new industrial
development is proposed that will benefit from projects in the Southeast Economic Development Plan; and
WHEREAS the Goshen Redevelopment Commission (Commission) believes it is reasonable and appropriate
to amend the boundaries of the Southeast Economic Development Area to include the additional areas as
depicted on the map attached as Exhibit A and the corresponding parcel numbers listed in Exhibit B attached
to this resolution.
WHEREAS the Commission adopted a Declaratory Resolution 87-2013 to Amend the Boundaries of the
Southeast Economic Development Area;
WHEREAS pursuant to Indiana Code § 36-7-14-16(a), the Goshen Plan Commission has determined that the
Declaratory Resolution and the Economic Development Plan for the Southeast Economic Development Area
conform to the City of Goshen’s Comprehensive Plan and has issued a written order approving the
Declaratory Resolution and the Plan;
WHEREAS pursuant to Indiana Code § 36-7-14-16(b) and Indiana Code § 36-7-14-41(c), the Goshen
Common Council has approved the Plan Commission’s written order and approved the Redevelopment
Commission’s determination that the additional areas as depicted on the map attached as Exhibit A and the
corresponding parcel numbers listed in Exhibit B attached to this resolution should be added to the Southeast
Economic Development Area;
WHEREAS pursuant to Indiana Code § 36-7-14-17 and Indiana Code § 5-3-1, a notice of the adoption and
substance of the Declaratory Resolution and a notice of public hearing on the proposed amendment was
published in the Goshen News and filed; and
WHEREAS the Commission has conducted a hearing at which the Commission received and heard all
remonstrances and objections from persons interested in or affected by the proposed amendment.
The Goshen Redevelopment Commission NOW CONFIRMS AND FINDS that:
1. The Commission previously established the Southeast Economic Development Area which is scheduled
to continue until May 11, 2033.
2. It is the intent of the Commission that the amendment of the boundaries of the Southeast Economic
Development Area occur without modifying the previously established allocation provisions, base
assessed values, base assessment dates, or the manner in which tax increment is calculated for the real
estate currently included in the Southeast Economic Development Area.
3. The additional areas as depicted on the map attached as Exhibit A and the corresponding parcel
numbers listed in Exhibit B attached to this resolution shall be added to the existing Southeast
Economic Development Area.
4. The Economic Development Plan (Plan) for the Southeast Economic Development Area can be better
achieved by amending the boundaries of the Southeast Economic Development Area to include the
additional areas as depicted on the map attached as Exhibit A and the corresponding parcel numbers
listed in Exhibit B attached to this resolution.
5. The Plan for the Southeast Economic Development Area will promote significant opportunities for the
gainful employment of the citizens of Goshen.
6. The Plan will provide needed improvements to the Southeast Economic Development Area which will
retain and expand existing businesses and will attract new businesses to the City of Goshen.
7. The capital improvements outlined in the Plan will not occur by the regulatory processes or by the
ordinary operation of private enterprise without resorting to the Commission’s powers under Indiana
Code 36-7-14-2.5 and 43 because of lack of public improvements, lack of funding for needed
improvements, and multiple ownership of land.
8. The public health and welfare will be benefitted by the accomplishment of the Plan for the Southeast
Economic Development Area.
9. The accomplishment of the Plan for the Southeast Economic Development Area will be of public utility
and benefit to the Goshen community. The benefit to the community will be able to be measured by
the attraction and/or retention of permanent jobs and an increase in the property tax base.
10. The Plan for the Southeast Economic Development Area is not modified by the amendment of the
boundaries. The Plan previously approved is consistent with other development and/or redevelopment
plans for the City of Goshen, including the City of Goshen’s Comprehensive Plan.
2

of the area described and depicted in the resolutions originally establishing the Southeast Economic

Memo

To: Redevelopment Commission

From: Mark Brinson

Subject: Powerhouse Lease- Falling Watters, LLC

Date: January 10, 2014


Falling Waters, LLC has submitted a proposal to the Redevelopment Commission to
lease property adjacent to the millrace powerhouse. The company proposes to
construct improvements that would allow for the operation of a small hydro-electric
generating facility.

A proposed lease was submitted to the Commission in 2013 for consideration, but no
action was taken. Further consideration of the lease was tabled due to concerns
expressed by Falling Waters related to the lease payments. The proposed lease
established an escalating monthly lease that would cap at $2,000 per month.

Falling Waters has proposed a modification to the lease that would base lease
payments on 10% of the gross revenue received from the sale of electricity to Nipsco.
Attached is a letter from Falling Waters giving further explanation to their request.

This topic is included on the J anuary agenda as a discussion item.


FALLINGWATERS LLC
November 05, 2013
Dear Mark;
Starting this missive I wish to remind one and all we are a startup company and as such we do not yet possess
experience for the equipment we intend to use, and have naught but the performance numbers supplied to us by the
manufacturer's installations at numerous Europe sites. We do not expect any difference in function, but are
uncomfortable committing to a substantial monthly rent payment in the face of so many uncertainties. Further
complications; flow rate in the canal is undetermined, nor does the city procured a commitment from Elkhart
County Parks Department on the acre feet of water they will allow to the Goshen hydraulic canal now or in the
future. These facts cause fungible numbers leaving us to hope for the best, and these numbers are in our pro-
forma. We expect to spend upwards of $300,000 in engineering fees, for which we pray the TIF District will decide
to make a contribution in consideration of the TIF's return in tax and rent payments, for this $3m installation. The
engineering must be completed before we present our requests to ACOE, DNR, FERC, USDA, and others for
permitting, funding etc. It should be noted as we discussed previously working with these agencies may take from
3-5 years.
1. In lieu of a fixed monthly payment to Goshen we propose to pay 10% of our monthly gross income from
the sale of electricity to NIPSCO from the first disbursement from NIPSCO, continuing with every
payment received thereafter until such time as lease is terminated in accordance with the provisions of the
lease agreement. In achieving this we present you with two different suggestions:
a. NIPSCO pays FWLLC who then pays Goshen the rental payment of 10% with the right to audit
NIPSCO payments FWLLC receives
b. We suspect NIPSCO will need the electrical production agreement in Goshen's name, NIPSCO
pays Goshen, City Treasurer shall deduct the city's 10%, remaindering the balance to FWLLC
2. TERM: Starting December 01, 2013 with a payment of $125.00 to Goshen upon mutual execution of lease
agreement and Goshen's approval of FWLLC's proposed improvement plans, and said lease shall be filed
with the County Recorder as a Public Notice of the Goshen lien
3. INSURANCE: FWLLC shall have insurance in place before the commencement of any on site
construction work such as excavation, installation, etc.
Another issue continuously being brought forth is what happens if we are unsuccessful and the equipment
remains behind in the canal bed along with the new ancillary building on the baole In the forty three years I have
been in business I have never seen a "what happens" contained in a lease. So I do not know how one would inject
such a statement that in my mind is detrimental to the lender's comprehension of our business plan and lease when
the lease contains the potential for failure to our landlord within our executed lease, nonsensical. Here to the best
of my knowledge is what could happen if we defaulted on our business loan; the lender would foreclose on our
business loan thereby taking ownership of the installed equipment; lender then presents demand to USDA for
reimbursement of 80% of loan amount. At reimbursement USD owns the equipment and probably delivers to
GSA to dispose. GSA then lists it for sale and a buyer buys at the best price after meeting with you to discuss the
lease and canal flow, etc., buyer may possibly pull equipment and move to a more viable location for these turbines
are in short supply. A scrapper may purchase, scrapping equipment and removing under terms of recorded lease.
Follows the last updated lease of 8/15 with our comments in the balloons. Some comments now conflict with this
letter, questions arise please contact me.

Memorandum
 
To: Redevelopment Commission

From: Becky Hershberger

Date: J anuary 14, 2014

RE: Permission to Conduct Supplemental Phase II Investigations at 214 W. J efferson Street –
Hawks Building


We are requesting permission from the Commission to utilize our USEPA assessment grant to fund
supplemental sampling for the Hawks property.
In 2008-2009, we completed assessment activities on this property and discovered a groundwater plume
of PCE at the northern end of the parcel. The source for the contamination has been identified as the
former dry cleaning facility at the northeast corner of 3
rd
and J efferson and they are working with IDEM
to develop a plan for cleanup but it will take years before the remediation activities are complete. In the
meantime, the plume continues to impact our property and is causing concern for the equity investors
working with LaCasa on the residential redevelopment project. Our previous sampling indicated that
there are no groundwater impacts at the south end of the existing Hawks property but our data does not
show how far south the plume does extend. Our intent with the requested supplemental assessment is to
conduct sampling at six (6) locations around the building to further evaluate groundwater, soil and soil
gas. Provided the data comes back as we expect and shows that the southern portion of the building
planned for residential is not impacted by the plume, LaCasa will receive a Comfort Letter from the
Indiana Brownfield Program (IBP) that does not list the plume as a Recognized Environmental Concern
(REC). Without the additional sampling, it will have to be noted as a concern in the letter.
SME has provided a not-to-exceed cost of $19,600 to complete the sampling for this site. A map
depicting the sampling locations is attached and we have discussed this plan with both the USEPA and
the IBP and they agree with the plan.
We are requesting that the Commission approve this request which will be utilizing our USEPA
assessment grant funds.

To: Redevelopment Commission

From: Becky Hershberger

Date: J anuary 14, 2014

RE: Permission to Conduct Phase II Investigations at 718 E. Lincoln Avenue


We are requesting permission from the Commission to utilize our USEPA assessment grant to fund a
Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) for the property at 718 E. Lincoln Avenue. The property
has historically been residential. However, it is located within close proximity to the salvage yard at 828
E. Lincoln Avenue and is being considered as a potential site for the retention pond planned to address
the drainage problems along Steury Avenue. The intent of the sampling would be to confirm that there is
no contamination migrating to this site from the adjacent sites. The Phase I ESA that was recently
conducted identified the need for limited sampling.
SME has provided a not-to-exceed cost of $14,600 to complete the sampling for this site. The cost
includes 4 borings along the eastern edge of the site and will evaluate contamination based on run-off
from adjacent properties as well as potential groundwater impacts. A map depicting the sampling
locations is attached and the property owner has agreed to provide access to all locations to facilitate the
work. There is currently a purchase agreement in place. However, the City will not complete property
acquisition until this work is completed.
We are requesting that the Commission approve this request which will be utilizing our USEPA
assessment grant funds.

January 2014 Redevelopment Report
 
To: Redevelopment Commission
Date: January 14, 2014

1. Hawks Furniture Building Status
Both LaCasa and the Redevelopment Commission have obligations under the purchase agreement that must
be met prior to closing as well as obligations that must be met after closing:
Commission Obligations (to be completed)
Prior to Closing
• Demolish the non-historic sections of the building and complete the environmental remediation under
those sections of the building. The planned partial demolition and remediation project for this site is
now complete. LaCasa’s equity investors, however, have concerns regarding the PCE plume that
exists at the north end of the parcel. We are requesting permission from the Commission at this
month’s meeting to conduct supplemental sampling around the building to further define the extent of
the plume. The gathered data will be reflected in the Comfort Letter issued by the Indiana Brownfields
Program prior to transfer of the site to LaCasa in March 2014. The sampling plan has been reviewed
by both the EPA and IBP and both are on board with the City’s approach to further delineation.
Post-Closing
• Extend water and sewer lines
• Convert alley into a street
• Complete the environmental remediation along the canal bank (to occur after demolition) – Complete
• Construct a public parking lot with 20 spaces
• Move the utility lines on the west side of the alley
• Construct a pedestrian path along the canal
LaCasa Obligations (to be completed)
Prior to Closing
• Obtain funding commitments - Complete
Post-Closing
• Complete building exterior, phase one interior (35 apartments) and site improvements
The only item remaining to be completed is the receipt of environment closure documents from IDEM. It is
expected that this will occur in December which will allow for a closing before December 31, 2013.
2. South Link Road Project
January, 2014 Redevelopment Report

2

The South Link Road project from SR 15 to Regent Street is progressing on schedule. We anticipate
construction in 2016, which will be funded with 80% Federal STP funds and 20% local funds. The total
construction costs are $9,455,003.00. The city has received $7,446,677.00 in Federal STP funds to
utilize during the construction phase of the project. The City will be responsible for $3,487,978.00.
J PR is under contract to complete the design and manage all of the right-of-way acquisition.
3. Native Landscaping Project Maintenance
We recently met with Parks Department staff to discuss future maintenance needs for the native landscaping
projects that have been completed by the Redevelopment Commission in the last few years. These areas
include US 33 – Phase I and II, the former NIPSCO site and the canal bank areas. Parks Department will be
adding staff during 2014 and will have the capacity to assist with the maintenance. However, we intend to
issue a Request for Proposals to qualified firms to assist in training for the proper care for these areas for the
upcoming year. We hope to be bringing the proposals to the Commission early next year.
Phase III of the US 33 project has been designed by JPR but we plan to get all other areas under control and
established prior to proceeding with that project.
4. USEPA Assessment Grant & Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) Grant Awards
The City has received a community-wide assessment grant ($400,000) and a revolving loan fund (RLF) grant
($1,000,000) to be used for remediation projects from the USEPA. Both sources of funding will be used for
sites throughout Goshen and will allow for collaboration with local businesses and developers to facilitate
redevelopment projects.
For our assessment grant, we are working on Phase I’s for 902/904 Chicago Avenue and 630 Lincolnway
East. Phase I’s have been completed for 310 S. 3
rd
Street, 215 Pleasant Street, 718 E. Lincoln Avenue and
808/810 Logan Street. We have also completed Phase II work at 828 E. Lincoln Avenue, 216 S. Main Street,
310 S. 3
rd
Street and the former Omnisource property. We have completed additional sampling at Site 7, as
well, to gather the data necessary for closure with the Matthews development and are in the process of
scheduling sampling activities at 215 Pleasant Ave. We are requesting permission from the Commission to
complete Phase II sampling on Logan Street, 718 E. Lincoln Avenue and at the Hawks property at this
month’s meeting. A few other prospective projects are under way and we will be bringing more information
to the Commission as the official requests come in.
We met with our consultants for the RLF grant in early July to discuss potential projects and ideas for the
available funding. We identified a few potential projects and have posed various questions to the USEPA
looking at different ways we can utilize the funds to allow for the City to receive the best benefit from the
grant.
5. Goshen Theater
The next phase of the project will be to conduct a capital campaign feasibility study. This task will
include interviews with potential donors and the evaluation of using Historic Tax Credits and New
Market Tax Credits as innovative financing tools. This study has been funded, a consultant has been
selected and it will be completed in the first quarter of 2014.
An application has been filed with the IRS to create a new 501 (C) (3) not-for-profit corporation called
Goshen Theater, Inc. This new entity has been established to acquire the property and allow donors to
make tax deductible donations to the renovation project, provided the capital campaign feasibility study
produces favorable results.

The Goshen Fire Department recently inspected the fire escape on the south end of the building and
determined that it could no longer be used due to deterioration of the structure. The result is that the
ballroom on the third floor cannot be used until the fire escape is replaced. Goshen Theater Inc. is in the
process of seeking funds to complete this project.
6. Canal Road Construction
Current plans call for a two-way street approximately 16 feet wide so as to keep speeds low and discourage
cut-through traffic. The design will be completed by the Goshen Engineering Department. Construction is
planned for 2014. The project area will extend from Douglas to Jefferson.
7. NIPSCO Building
The Redevelopment Commission approved a lease/purchase agreement with the Goshen Brewing Company
to convert the Nipsco building into a brew pub. The tenant will take possession of the building in November
and should complete construction in the first quarter of 2014. The facility should be open to the public by May
of next year.
8. Northwest Bike Connector
The Northwest Bike Connector route will connect the northwest Goshen neighborhoods to the US 33
Commercial district. It extends west along Bashor Road from US 33 to CR 17 and then north to the Sam’s
Club parking lot. The first phase of the bike path along Bashor Road has been constructed and the second
phase is now being designed.
The Goshen Engineering Department has received a commitment for federal matching funds for this project.
A RFP for a design services was issued and proposals DLZ was selected as the project consultant.
Construction is expected to begin in 2015.
9. 324 South 5
th
Street
In April, 324 South 5
th
Street was transferred from the Board of Works to the Redevelopment Commission.
The purpose of the property transfer was to allow the Commission to offer the property for sale or lease. A
Request for Proposals (RFP) was approved by the Commission and has been issued. As of the initial due date,
no proposals have been received.
This property is not actively being marketed at this time. Based on discussions with the Redevelopment
Commission, staff will wait until a formal decision is made on the US 33 relocation project before transferring
this property to a new owner.
10. Mill Race Townhomes and Flats
The Redevelopment Commission has approved a development agreement with developer David Mathews to
construct townhomes along the millrace. Approximately 25 townhomes and flats will be constructed on the
parcel situated north of Purl and south of Madison. Under the terms of the agreement, the Redevelopment
Commission will reconstruct the north/south alley on the eastern edge of the site, install new water and sewer
mains and construct a public street between the townhome development and the millrace. Construction is
anticipated to begin in 2014.
11. Millrace Neighborhood Development
The Redevelopment Commission has selected the Millrace Neighborhood, Inc. as the developer for the parcel
along the race located south of Purl and north of Douglas. Staff has been working with project developer
Richard Miller to negotiate a final development agreement. Under the terms of the proposed agreement, the

city will be responsible for reconstructing the alley from Purl to Douglas and extending sewer and water
mains to the site. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2014.


12. Downtown Vault Repairs
The Commission has approved $60,000 to fund the Downtown Vault Closure Program. The purpose of this
program is to provide matching funds to close vaults located under sidewalks in the central business district. A
total of 24 vaults were found to be in need of repair.
To date this program has funded vault closures at the following locations:
• 209 South Main (John Hall’s)
• 106 North Main (RC3 Realty)
• 227 S Main (Dew Drop Inn)
• 110 E Lincoln (Mervin Schrock)
• 101 S. Main (1
st
Source Bank)
• 115½South Main (John Davis)
• 218 N. Main (Cuauhtemoc Perez)
• 122 S. Main Street (Gutierrez Mexican Restaurant)
• 120 S. Main Street (Sorg)
In addition, there were 47 properties where it could not be determined whether vaults existed because no
access was available from the interior of the building. To conclude if additional vaults exist, it was necessary
to use ground penetrating radar (GPR) to check for voids under the sidewalk. The GPR survey has been
completed and a report on the results was presented at the August meeting. Preliminary findings indicated that
there were additional open vaults in the downtown that were not discovered during the initial survey.
However, upon further investigation it has been concluded that there is only one additional vault on East
Lincoln that needs to be filled. Since this particular vault is not accessible from the adjoining property, the
property owner will not be responsible for making the repairs. The Commission has authorized staff to fund
these repairs out of the remaining funds that were allocated to the Vault Closure Program.
13. Powerhouse Proposal
The Commission has requested proposals to lease the Powerhouse. A proposal from Falling Waters, LLC was
received in December and is currently being reviewed by City staff. The Commission has tabled this proposal
and will take action at a future date.
14. Kercher Road Retention Area
The Engineering Department is in the process of developing a plan for a stormwater retention area on the
north side of Kercher Road, just east of the railroad tracks. This project will address some of the flooding
problems in the Goshen Industrial Park.
The City has secured right-of-entry onto several of the properties and has begun conducting soil borings to
determine the height of the water table and the type of soil conditions present in this area. Once these factors

are determined, a design for the retention area will be completed by the Engineering Department. Property
acquisition is now complete.
15. Railroad Curve Realignment, Safety Improvements & Quiet Zone
The Commission approved a contract with American Structurepoint earlier this year to begin looking at the
feasibility of creating a quiet zone along Norfolk Southern’ s north/south line adjacent to 9
th
Street. This
project was highly desired by the participants in the 9
th
Street Corridor planning project. The timing of the
North Connector Route for US 33 and the curve realignment at the north end of the tracks seem to be aligning
with the timing of implementation of the quiet zone. We met with the corridor business owners on the 9
th
and
held a Corridor Steering Committee meeting on August 14
th
to present Structurepoint’s early findings. We
also met with a few of the residents of the East Lincoln Crossroads neighborhood in late September to discuss
the potential future projects and impacts that would affect their neighborhood. This is a project that will be
discussed in much greater detail in the coming months as more information is gathered.
