18 City Excise Tax capacity leveraged for Convention Center Expansion and for backing of new Downtown Hotel No reserves or pay-as-you-go funding available due to other City commitments Speculative nature of the project and large financing required by the Developer (more than $800 million) Uncertainty of revenue and sales tax generation from the project Challenges of City Participation

19 No City purchase of parking until construction in form of Certification of Completion (C of O) of parking garage, 220,000 sq. ft of retail, 500,000 sq. ft of commercial and 150 room hotel are completed. Developer guarantees projected parking and sales tax revenues from project for first five years through a letter of credit from a bank approved by the City that can be drawn upon for any shortfalls to finance $70 million in excise tax bonds. City sells Jefferson Street Garage near U.S. Airways Center to provide for $20 million to purchase additional underground parking from the Project. City Participation TERMS OF DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT
