PLAN STATUS/RECOMMENDATIONS AND ANTICIPATED EXIT DATE
 The length of time remaining to complete activities in Berkley IV depends on and is directly related to future revitalization and planning efforts in the EDAW study and future funding capacity. This could range from 5- 15 additional years.
 
Immediate planning and funding efforts, include the continued provision of rehabilitation funding and technical assistance, the build-out of the site adjacent to the Berkley Shopping Center, and the acquisition of the final parcel necessary to assemble the proposed S. Main Street- Liberty Street corridor.
 
Two additional parcels scheduled for future development are also located in Berkley IV. The northern-most tract is bounded by Berkley Avenue on the north, Liberty Street on the south, S. Main Street on the east, and State Street on the west. The second parcel lies two blocks south and is bound by the Berkley Multi- Purpose Center on the north, Bainbridge Boulevard on the south, South Main Street on the east, and Interstate 464 on the west. Based upon market demand, funding, etc., it is conceivable that either or both parcels could be developed within 3-7 years.
 
Should the general Plan be amended to reflect the EDAW study, the redevelopment plan will need to be amended. If this occurs, it is projected the project will remain active for an additional 10 years.
