Presentation for P.I.L.O.T. - Berkshire Muskegon.
Josh Hafron, of General Capital Group, 212 W. Kinsey, Chicago, IL gave an overview of the
project being proposed for a Senior Independent Living across the street from the current United
Way offices on E. Clay Avenue. The building will include a common area, community room,
exercise room, library, senior event programming, and outdoor space as well as an on-site
manager and leasing office.

The proposal includes 2 Market Rate Units, 48 – 60% Area Median Income Units, 28 - 40%
Area Median Income Units, and 9 – 30% Area Median Income Units.

This building will create two permanent full-time positions and two part-time positions. They
are requesting a P.I.L.O.T. of $12,000 annually.

MSHDA is doing a Market Rate Study that is to be completed by the end of February or
beginning of March.

Among other concerns, Commissioners indicated a concern with the location and number of
Market Rate Units to be offered.

This item has been placed on the March 10, 2015 Commission Meeting for consideration.
Commissioners are encouraged to contact Cathy Brubaker-Clarke with concerns about this
project so they may be addressed before the meeting.

Motion by Commissioner Hood, seconded by Vice Mayor Spataro to adjourn at 6:21 p.m.
