WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency desires to refinance ten (10) existing Tax Increment Financing Loans (listed in Exhibit A hereto) with four new Tax Increment Financing Loans with Regions Capital Advantage, Inc. (the “Refinancing”) in order to reduce expenditures in the FY2020 Operating Budget of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County by approximately $17,900,000; and

WHEREAS, the Board of the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency approved the Refinancing at its March 10, 2020 meeting; and

WHEREAS, the Comptroller of the State of Tennessee and the Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development have determined that the Refinancing is in the best interest of the State of Tennessee as required by T.C.A. Section 9-23-104; and

WHEREAS, Section 5.06.030B of the Metropolitan Code of Laws requires authorization of such a refinancing by the Metropolitan Council by a Resolution receiving twenty-one (21) affirmative votes.
