WHEREAS, on January 5, 2016, pursuant to Ordinance No. BL2015-67, the Metropolitan Council amended Title 2 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws to authorize the creation of a Gulch Central Business Improvement District for Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, and to appoint a corporation to act as an advisory board to the District; and
WHEREAS, the initial rate of levy of the special assessment for the GCBID was set within Ordinance No. BL2015-67 at a rate of assessment not exceeding eighteen cents ($0.18) per $100 of assessed value of real property for calendar year 2017, and not exceeding fifteen cents ($0.15) per $100 of assessed value of real property for calendar year 2018; and
WHEREAS, Tennessee Code Annotated § 67-5-1601 requires that a reappraisal of all real property and an equalization of assessments be completed in every county in Tennessee every six (6) years, and further allows a reappraisal every four (4) years as determined by the Assessor of Property with the review of the local governing body; and
WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Assessor of Property has conducted a reappraisal subsequent to the adoption of Ordinance No. BL2015-67, necessitating the adoption of a revised rate of assessment for the 2017 tax billing within the Gulch Central Business Improvement District.
