8. THE CITY OF EL PASO SUPPORTS CREATIVE CLASS BUSINESSES AS DEFINED BY RICHARD FLORIDA IN ''THE RISE OF THE CREATIVE CLASS''.

1. WILL SUBSTANTIALLY ENHANCE THE ECONOMIC HEALTH OF THE CITY OF EL PASO;

2. WILL RESULT IN A NET INCREASE OR RETENTION OF JOBS IN THE CITY, WILL ADD TO THE TAX BASE, AND WILL OTHERWISE IMPROVE OR ENHANCE THE ECONOMIC WELFARE OF THE RESIDENTS OR BUSINESSES OF THE CITY; OR

SECTION IV. QUALIFICATION CRITERIA

IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR INCENTIVES, A PROJECT MUST MEET QUALIFYING STANDARDS IN AT LEAST ONE OF THE CATEGORIES BELOW.

CATEGORY 1 - QUALITY JOBS (MUST RECEIVE A JOB CREDIT OF 25 OR MORE AND 80% OF JOBS MUST BE AT OR ABOVE MCW)

A. WAGES

LESS THAN MEDIAN COUNTY WAGE (MCW) = 0X

100-119% OF MEDIAN COUNTY WAGE = 1.0X

120-149% OF MEDIAN COUNTY WAGE = 1.5X

=> 150% OF MEDIAN COUNTY WAGE = 2.0X



B. NUMBER OF JOBS



EXAMPLE: ABC COMPANY IS ESTABLISHING OPERATIONS AND HIRING OR RETAINING 40 WORKERS

CREDIT FOR NUMBER OF JOBS WILL BE BASED ON THE WAGE LEVELS ABOVE. FOR INSTANCE, IF A COMPANY IS HIRING OR RETAINING 5 JOBS UNDER 80% OF MCW, 5 JOBS AT 115% OF MCW, 10 JOBS AT 130% OF MCW AND 20 JOBS AT 200% OF MCW THEN THEIR JOB CREDIT WOULD BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:

JOBS * FACTOR = JOB CREDIT

5 * 0 = 0

5 * 1 = 5

10 * 1.5 = 15

20 * 2 = 40

TOTAL JOB CREDIT = 60

SINCE 35 OF THE 40 JOBS PAY AT OR ABOVE MCW, THIS COMPANY WOULD QUALIFY (35 JOBS ABOVE MCW / 40 TOTAL JOBS = 87.5%).

NOTE: ONLY JOBS MEETING MEDIAN COUNTY WAGE WILL BE COUNTED AND 80% OF ALL JOBS MUST MEET MCW TO BE ELIGIBLE.

CATEGORY 2 - TARGETED LOCATION



A. LOCATED IN A FEDERAL ZONE (EMPOWERMENT ZONE, FEDERAL ENTERPRISE ZONE)

AN ECONOMIC IMPACT ANALYSIS WILL BE CONDUCTED BY THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT ON EVERY PROJECT CONSIDERED FOR INCENTIVES. THE DELIVERY MECHANISM OF CHOICE FOR INCENTIVES WILL BE THE CHAPTER 380 AGREEMENT; HOWEVER, THE CITY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO USE ANY OTHER SOURCE (CITY, STATE, FEDERAL, FOUNDATION, ETC.) IN THE AWARD OF INCENTIVES. AS A MATTER OF GENERAL POLICY, TAX ABATEMENTS AND CHAPTER 380 AGREEMENTS ENTERED INTO AS A RESULT OF THIS POLICY WILL NOT BE USED SIMULTANEOUSLY UNLESS THE REVENUE STREAM FROM WHICH THE CHAPTER 380 AGREEMENT IS PAID IS DERIVED FROM SOURCES OTHER THAN PROPERTY TAX.

AGREEMENTS MAY BE CONDITIONED ON THE COMPLETION OF SPECIFIC IMPROVEMENTS TO REAL PROPERTY AND/OR JOB NUMBERS AND SALARIES LEVELS BEING MET. THE AGREEMENTS SHALL CONTAIN RECAPTURE CLAUSES IN THE EVENT THAT SUCH CONDITIONS ARE NOT MET.

THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT IS CHARGED WITH RECOMMENDING TO THE LEGISLATIVE REVIEW COMMITTEE FOR ECONOMIC AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT THE LEVEL OF INCENTIVES BASED ON THE ECONOMIC IMPACT ANALYSIS AND OTHER FACTORS. FOR PROJECTS QUALIFYING UNDER SECTION I, INCENTIVES WILL BE LIMITED TO 50% OF THE BENEFIT DERIVED FROM ANY PARTICULAR PROJECT (CALCULATING TAX REVENUES BASED ON DIRECT, INDIRECT AND INDUCED BENEFITS). FOR PROJECTS QUALIFYING UNDER CATEGORIES II OR III, INCENTIVES WILL BE LIMITED ACCORDING TO THE FOLLOWING:

25% - A MINIMUM OF 80% OF THE JOBS PAYING AT LEAST 80% OF MCW OR;

50% - A MINIMUM OF 75% OF THE JOBS PAYING AT LEAST 90% OF MCW OR GREATER
