No decision on Ski Run lots
The city’s redevelopment agency received seven letters of interest last year in two lots it owns on Ski Run Boulevard, but the fate of the parcels remains undecided.
After the inquiries were received about developing the lots, the City Council discussed selling the parcels instead to help raise funds for a new City Hall, said Redevelopment Director Gene Palazzo.
Now, with a new lineup of council members following the November elections, redevelopment officials are waiting to see what the council wants to do with the property, Palazzo said.
One lot, about 65,871 square feet, is at the southwest corner of Ski Run Boulevard and Highway 50.
The other lot is on the opposite side of Ski Run Boulevard and about a block up from Highway 50, at Paradise Avenue. That lot is approximately 22,500 square feet.
The redevelopment agency last summer solicited letters of interest and requested qualifications from parties interested in the parcels, reaching out through direct letters and advertising in the Wall Street Journal.
The seven letters received by the city expressed general interest but didn’t outline specific proposals, Palazzo said.
