The City Council hereby designates the real property described in Part 1 of the Neighborhood Revitalization Plan as the Neighborhood Revitalization Area and finds that the following conditions exist within said Area:
   (a)   A predominance of buildings which, by reason of dilapidation or obsolescence, are detrimental to public health, safety and welfare;
   (b)   A substantial number of deteriorating structures which impair the sound growth of the county, retards the provision of housing and constitutes an economic liability; and
   (c)   A predominance of buildings which, by reason of age, history or architecture, are significant and should be restored to productive use, and finds that the rehabilitation, conservation and redevelopment of said area is necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the city.
