🏦🤝 Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) Financial Commitments
Renegotiating the BIA's financial commitments associated with the Dunlop Streetscape ($300,000) and Meridian Place ($3,351,775) projects – of which $2,347,613 (over 70%) is still outstanding.
Current agreement is to pay the remaining funds over 10 years beginning in 2022, at 4.25% interest.
No payment has been made towards the Dunlop Streetscape commitment
$1,675,887 was supposed to have been paid by special BIA levy, and $1,675,888 by BIA fundraising
The special levy has not been used to pay down the BIA's debt, but $162,941 of additional fundraising commitments have been put towards this portion, bringing the outstanding levy amount owed to $1,512,946
The BIA has fundraised $1,838,829 – however, only $1,304,162 of that has been paid to the city, leaving $534,667 (which it appears are pledges that have not yet been collected)
Proposed plan is to pay the remaining funds over 20 years beginning in 2022, interest-free
All commitments related to the two project will be paid in full by 2022
Remaining Dunlop Streetscape commitment will be paid $15,000 annually
Remaining Meridian Place commitment will be paid $75,647 annually
Minimum annual payment will be included as a base budget commitment within its annual budget submission presented to the BIA members and City Council
BIA will continue coordinating the outstanding community fundraising contributions of $534,667 with any unfunded commitment being added to the BIA base budget submission in 2032 and repaid over 10 years interest-free, and shall be responsible for its fundraising activities, including the collection of any outstanding funds that have been promised.
