    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council PUBLIC HEARINGS…Planning Commission (4) City Council (5) County Bond Hearings (2) Total (11) OT E N U TR “ERC has fully complied.”
    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council Issues or Smokescreen?
    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council Issues or Smokescreen? NEED? “Executive Summary Investment Opportunities: Anticipated need of 6,301 new owner units and 4,131 new rental units in the county over the next five years. Demand is greatest for units priced below $130,000.” “Rental Market: [In Oklahoma County] …rental rates have increase moderately and occupancy levels of quality rentals are above 95%. New rental housing is needed in most population centers in the county.”
    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council NEED? Edmond… Oklahoma’s fastest growing city is also the number one ranked submarket in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area... And an average annual household income of over $74,000, Edmond has become an influencing factor in the developing OKC landscape Current occupancy in Edmond is 97.3% with Norman W being the only market with a higher occupancy est at 97.7%. It is not uncommon for Edmond to exceed 98% or even 99% occupancy. Edmond dominates all submarkets, placing 5th or better in 9 of the 10 ranking criteria. As with occupancy, these high rent numbers seem to indicate an opportunity for new development. …the double-digit population growth continues to bring more renters in the this market. Edmond remains Oklahoma’s fastest growing city.
    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council NEED? The average year built of the Edmond properties sold in 2002 is 1970. The average year built for all properties sold in OKC in 2002 is 1971. This apples- to-apples comparison is another indicator that the Edmond market is significantly stronger than most other submarkets. Another indicator of strength and balance in Edmond is total population ratio to the number of apartment units. Excluding UCO on-campus students and housing units, this submarket currently has one unit for every 17 residents. This higher than the OKC metro area average of 14.5, further indications of a healthy market and apartment growth opportunities.
    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council NEED? |Market Conditions and Project Evaluation Summary According to our survey, the market for multifamily development within Oklahoma City is good. The area is experiencing good occupancy levels and large-unit types are rare and in-demand. The Demand Analysis section will illustrate that demand in the area is good and should support the development of the property. The subject development will offer excellent amenities, competitive unit sizes, as well as competitive rents, and therefore will be comparable with or superior to the competition and should be well received within the market.

    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council Issues or Smokescreen? |Safety? Traffic study shows that the impact of traffic from multifamily that level ofservice will remain adequate and will not require any additional improvements. Due to the high number of right turns on to Covell at peak hours the third land will have a positive impact. We have agreed to construct and bear 100% of the cost of a third lane for Thomas Drive abutting the Apartment Site and extending North to Covell.

    • To: Mayor Naifeh & City Council Issues or Smokescreen? |Quality & ERC Integrity …these allegations proved to be without substance, and no charges were ever filed by the District Attorney’s Office. …we have found Phase I and Phase II of the Shawnee ChapelRidge development to be an asset to the community. Further, I can say that our experience with ERC and its people have been very positive.
