BINDING MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING
BETWEEN THE CITY OF SHREVEPORT
AND
GATEWAY LOUISIANA, LLC

THIS BINDING MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU) is made and


entered on this day of ____^^___ __, 2020, by and between the City of
Shreveport ("City"), a duly incorporated municipal corporation in the State of Louisiana,
represented by Adrian Perkins, Mayor, duly authorized to act herein and Gateway Louisiana,
LLC ("Gateway"), a Louisiana limited liability company represented herein by, Larry English,
duly authorized to act herein.

1. PURPOSE

The purpose of MOU is to gather the necessary information regarding the cost to the City
of entering into a public-private partnership to develop Cross Bayou. The cost is needed to
determine if a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement (CEA) to form a public-private partnership for
the development of Cross Bayou can meet all Louisiana State law requirements and City
ordinances. Additional information will be needed to make this determination; however, the cost
is fundamental to determining if this project can move forward. It is anticipated that future
memorandums of understanding will be needed before a CEA obligating the City to expend
funds and/or property can be executed. This MOU does not bind the City to enter into any future
agreements with Gateway, nor does it bind the City to move forward with developing Cross
Bayou.

2. TERM

The term of this MOU shall be one (1) year from the date first written above. The City
Council, by resolution, may extend the term of this MOU for up to one (1) additional year. Any
extension shall be subject to terms and conditions of the resolution.

3. OBLIGATIONS

3.1 Gateway shall deliver to the City a report and cost benefit analyses and pro
formas regarding onsite remediation of the project area designated as a brownfield.

showing return on City investment from assembling the lands show in Exhibit "1".

3.3 Gateway shall provide the City detailed cost benefit analysis and pro formas
showing return on City investment from donation and/or lease of City-owned land as shown in
Exhibit"!".

3.4 Gateway shall provide the City detailed cost benefit analyses and pro formas
showing return on investment for City providing infrastructure as built-plans, engineering data
such as GIS, on-going and planned project information, Rights-of-Way (ROW) related to the

for the purpose of erecting building and other infrastructure components.

3.5 City shall provide public record information available to Gateway, as requested,
regarding the Cross Bayou property. However, City shall be under no obligation to create plans,
drawings, or any other document.

3.6 City shall use its best efforts to determine if it has the legal authority to acquire
(by sale, expropriation, or any other means) the property it does not already own in Cross Bayou
and then lease and/or donate said property to a private entity under the Louisiana Constitution,
Louisiana State law, and City ordinances.
