City Council to consider PILOT agreement

Posted

The Cleveland City Council will vote today on a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement with downtown redeveloper Nicholas Lillios, during its regularly schedule meeting at the Municipal Building.

In addition, the city council will consider eight liquor store applications. Two of those applications, for proposed stores to be located on Wildwood Avenue and Georgetown Road, were postponed during the last two city council meetings after city council members and city residents expressed concerns that the presence of the stores would be disruptive to those communities.

As a result, the city council decided to request outside legal counsel regarding consideration of the two applications in question.

Lillios is seeking approval of the PILOT in connection to a redevelopment project he is planning at the 44,000-square-foot former Permna Color building located at 240 First St., where several loft apartments, as well as retail space are planned.

The PILOT  will freeze property taxes for residential and commercial portions of the building for 10 years. 

The City Industrial Development Board met on April 4 and considered the request. It is recommending approval by the city council. 

The city council will consider the following:
