A Carson City affordable housing development is inching a step closer to reality.
On Thursday, the Board of Supervisors will consider issuing a request for proposal seeking a developer for a project on 6.31 acres of city-owned land at 3410 Butti Way.
In January, the board directed staff to develop the RFP. Since then, staff has had an appraisal and an Environmental Site Assessment done, and drafted the RFP.
The RFP, if approved, will be issued Sept. 12 with a deadline to respond by Oct. 24. The board will select a developer on Nov. 21.
Listed among the city’s objectives for the project is affordability.
“A number of units shall be affordable to households serving at or below 30 percent area median income and at 60 percent area median income,” reads the draft RFP. “A majority of the units shall be affordable to households serving at or below 80 percent area median income. Strong consideration will be given to proposals serving a range of household incomes.”
The city anticipates the project to consist of a maximum of 160 multifamily units.
The supervisors will also vote on approval of a final subdivision map for Schulz Ranch Phase 4.
The map outlines 100 lots on 17.29 acres and 2.57 acres of common area and 4.87 acres of right of way.
The board will convene as the Redevelopment Authority to approve the expenditure of $20,000 to write a master plan for Fuji Park and $12,000 for new signage at Mills Park.
The Board of Supervisors meets at 8:30 a.m. in the Sierra Room, Community Center, 851 E. Williams St.
