Developing in Downtown

  • The Community and Economic Development Department manages the disposition and redevelopment of city-owned land, based on priorities set by the City Council and the strategic downtown vision.            
  • The disposition of land is administered through a competitive Request For Proposals (RFP) process, where sealed proposals are submitted to and evaluated by a panel of city staff, neighborhood leaders, and representatives from the private sector.
  • The panel utilizes consensus methodology to select the proposal that represents the highest and best use for the property based on criteria specifically approved by the City Council. CEDD staff then works with the successful proposer to negotiate a set of terms outlined through a Letter of Intent (LOI). The City Council has ultimate authority and, if they approve of the LOI, may authorize CEDD staff to enter into a disposition and development agreement.
  • CEDD also invites sealed proposals for development on privately-owned land through the annual Downtown RFP.  The Downtown RFP streamlines the request for, and evaluation of, City assistance for realistic, buildable and appropriate urban and mixed-use development and redevelopment by the private sector. Proposals are evaluated by a panel and require approval by the City Council.
