Any city proposing to undertake a redevelopment project or bioscience development project within a redevelopment district or bioscience development district established pursuant to K.S.A. 12-1771, and amendments thereto, shall prepare a project plan in consultation with the planning commission of the city and, in the case of a bioscience development district, with the approval of the bioscience authority. The project plan shall include:

(1) A summary of the feasibility study done as defined in K.S.A. 12-1770a, and amendments thereto, which will be an open record;

(2) a reference to the district plan established under K.S.A. 12-1771, and amendments thereto, that identifies the redevelopment or bioscience development project area that is set forth in the project plan that is being considered;

(3) a description and map of the redevelopment or bioscience development project area to be redeveloped;

(4) the relocation assistance plan required by K.S.A. 12-1777, and amendments thereto;

(5) a detailed description of the buildings and facilities proposed to be constructed or improved in such area; and

(6) any other information the governing body deems necessary to advise the public of the intent of the project plan.

(b) Resolution requirements. A copy of the redevelopment project plan or bioscience development project plan shall be delivered to the board of county commissioners of the county and the board of education of any school district levying taxes on property within the proposed redevelopment project area or bioscience development project area. Upon a finding by the planning commission that the project plan is consistent with the intent of the comprehensive plan for the development of the city, the governing body of the city shall adopt a resolution stating that the city is considering the adoption of the project plan. Such resolution shall:

(1) Give notice that a public hearing will be held to consider the adoption of the redevelopment project plan or bioscience development project plan and fix the date, hour and place of such public hearing;

(2) describe the boundaries of the redevelopment district or bioscience development district within which the redevelopment or bioscience development project will be located and the date of establishment of such district;

(3) describe the boundaries of the area proposed to be included within the redevelopment project area or bioscience development project area; and

(4) state that the project plan, including a summary of the feasibility study, relocation assistance plan and financial guarantees of the prospective developer and a description and map of the area to be redeveloped or developed are available for inspection during regular office hours in the office of the city clerk.

Except as provided in paragraph (3) of subsection (b) of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto, if the governing body determines that it may issue full faith and credit tax increment bonds to finance the redevelopment project or bioscience development project, in whole or in part, the resolution also shall include notice thereof.

(c) (1) Hearing. The date fixed for the public hearing shall be not less than 30 nor more than 70 days following the date of the adoption of the resolution fixing the date of the hearing.

(2) A copy of the resolution providing for the public hearing shall be by certified mail, return receipt requested, sent to the board of county commissioners of the county and the board of education of any school district levying taxes on property within the proposed redevelopment project area or bioscience development district project area. If the project is a bioscience development project, a copy of the resolution providing for the public hearing shall also be sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the Kansas development finance authority. Copies also shall be sent by certified mail, return receipt requested to each owner and occupant of land within the proposed redevelopment project area or bioscience development project area not more than 10 days following the date of the adoption of the resolution. The resolution shall be published once in the official city newspaper not less than one week nor more than two weeks preceding the date fixed for the public hearing. A sketch clearly delineating the area in sufficient detail to advise the reader of the particular land proposed to be included within the project area shall be published with the resolution.

(3) At the public hearing, a representative of the city shall present the city's proposed project plan. If the hearing is for a proposed bioscience development project, a representative of the Kansas bioscience authority shall assist in presenting the proposed bioscience project plan. Following the presentation of the project plan, all interested persons shall be given an opportunity to be heard. The governing body for good cause shown may recess such hearing to a time and date certain, which shall be fixed in the presence of persons in attendance at the hearing.

(d) The public hearing records and feasibility study shall be subject to the open records act, K.S.A. 45-215, and amendments thereto.

(e) Posthearing procedure. Following the public hearing, the governing body may adopt the project plan by ordinance passed upon a 2/3 vote and, in the case of a bioscience project plan, with the approval of the bioscience authority.

(f) Any substantial changes as defined in K.S.A. 12-1770a, and amendments thereto, to the project plan as adopted shall be subject to a public hearing following publication of notice thereof at least twice in the official city newspaper.

(g) Any project shall be completed within 20 years from the date of the approval of the project plan.

(h) A bioscience development project may be undertaken in a bioscience development district in the unincorporated area of a county by resolution of the board of county commissioners governing the area if:

(1) The bioscience development project is approved by the Kansas bioscience authority; and

(2) the board of county commissioners follows the notice, hearing and approval procedures required of a city to establish a bioscience development project.
