Proceeds of the Bonds will be loaned to Richmond Summit Apartments, LP, a Georgia limited partnership, or an affiliate thereof (hereinafter referred to as the “Borrower”), to finance the acquisition, rehabilitation and equipping of an approximately 135-unit multifamily housing apartment project to be located at 744 Broad Street, Augusta, Georgia 30901 (the “Project”).

The hearing will be held before Jacob Oglesby, Executive Director of the Authority, as designated hearing officer; or his designee, and may be continued or adjourned.
The Bonds will be a limited obligation of the Authority and do not constitute a general obligation of the State of Georgia, the consolidated government of Augusta-Richmond County, Georgia, or the Authority, nor are the Bonds payable in any manner by taxation, but are payable solely from the payments made by or on behalf of the Authority, pursuant to an agreement between the Authority and the Borrower, which are pledged to the payment of the Bonds. The issuance of Bonds will be in furtherance of the public purpose of the Authority. The Authority has no taxing power.
Interested persons wishing to express their views on the issuance of the Bonds or on the nature or location of the Project proposed to be financed during the public hearing may participate in the public hearing by attending the hearing in person.
