                WHEREAS, the Governor and council have received all of the documentation and information with respect to the proposed transaction that they have requested; and

 

                WHEREAS, further action by the Authority with respect to the proposed transaction is subject to, and cannot be taken until passage of, this Resolution;

                Section 1.               Findings.  On the basis of the Authority’s recommendation and the documentation and information received by the Governor and Council, and after a public hearing, the Governor and Council find:

 

                (a)           Special Findings.

 

(1)           The project to be financed with the proceeds of the Bonds consists of i) the acquisition of 11.16 acres of land at Route 3 and Mile Point Road in Meredith, New Hampshire (the “Land”), ii) construction of a 90,000 square-foot, 80-unit independent living facility with services, of which 20 units are for people with Alzheimer’s Disease on Mile Point Road in Meredith, New Hampshire, iii) payment of capitalized interest on the Bonds, iv) funding of a deposit to the Operating Reserve Fund; and

v) paying issuance costs (collectively, the “Facility” or “Project”).  The Facility is within the definition of “Commercial Facility” in RSA 162-I:2 and may be financed under the Act.

 

(2)           The establishment and operation of the Facility will create or preserve employment opportunities directly or indirectly within the State of New Hampshire (the “State”) and will likely be of general benefit to the community as a whole.

 

                b.             General Findings.

 

                                (1)           The Project and the proposed financing of the Project are feasible.

 

(2)           The Borrower has the skills and financial resources necessary to operate the Facility successfully.

 

(3)           The Trust Indenture, the Loan Agreement, the Mortgage and the other documents to be executed in connection with the issuance of the Bonds (collectively, the “Financing Documents”), contain provisions so that under no circumstances will the Authority be obligated, directly or indirectly, to pay Project costs, debt service or expenses of operation, maintenance and upkeep of the Facility except from proceeds of the Bonds or from funds received under the Financing Documents, exclusive of funds received under the Financing Documents by the Authority for its own use.

 

(4)           The Financing Documents do not purport to create any debt of the State with respect to the Facility, other than a special obligation of the Authority acting on behalf of the State under the Act.

 

(5)           The proposed financing of the Project by the Authority and the proposed operation and use of the Facility will serve one or more needs and implement one or more purposes set forth in RSA 162-I:1, will preserve or increase the social or economic prosperity of the State and one or more of its political subdivisions, and will promote the general welfare of the State’s citizens.

 

                Section 2.               Ultimate Finding and Determination.  The Governor and Council find that the proposed financing, operation and use of the Facility will serve a public use and provide a public benefit and determine that the Authority’s financing of the Project will be within the  policy of, and the authority conferred by, the Act.

 

                Section 3.               Approval.  The Governor and Council hereby approve the Authority’s taking such further action under the Act with respect to the transaction involving the Facility, the Project and the Bonds as may be requested.
