The Carson City School Board will hold a special meeting Friday regarding a resolution to approve a lease of real property and a parking lease agreement between the district and civil engineering consulting firm Resource Concepts, Inc.

The discussion includes approval of a parking lease agreement between CCSD and RCI to allow RCI’s staff to use a gravel lot adjacent to CCSD’s Gleason Professional Development Center at 604 W. Musser St. to develop as a parking lot and use for temporary space.

RCI, 340 N. Minnesota St., experienced significant damage due to a fire on Oct. 13 and has made the building unoccupiable. Staff members, according to CCSD’s reports, say it would take up to two years to repair their offices in the Lee House, which suffered $500,000 in damage. The business’ parking area will be consumed by construction materials, but the PDC site’s gravel lot provides an option for temporary parking.

The Board of Trustees, according to staff reports, has drafted a parking lease agreement for RCI staff members to use the space at a yearly rental payment to CCSD of $4,200 to be paid in monthly increments.

According to its website, RCI has provided planning, permitting, civil design, surveying and construction management services to CCSD on four bond initiatives approved by voters and multiple capital projects totaling more than $90 million since 1999.

Bond and capital work has included renovating the Empire Elementary School campus through building additions, parcel mapping, permitting, transportation design and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance. At Seeliger Elementary School, RCI provided permitting, construction staking and transportation along with a 3,200-square-foot building addition, school entrance and traffic flow pattern. The firm also made Carson High School track and field improvements and replaced aging baseball and tennis spectator seating areas among other facility needs.

The item will be presented by Superintendent Andrew Feuling.

The special meeting is scheduled for 4 p.m. Friday in the Robert Crowell Board Room in the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
