Supervisors set to OK Nugget project agreement
The Carson City Board of Supervisors is scheduled to take action Thursday to approve a coordination agreement for the Carson City Center Project, formerly known as the Nugget Project. The agreement is between the Carson City Redevelopment Authority, the Hop and Mae Adams Foundation and P3 Development.
The board also will consider authorizing $75,000 from the Redevelopment Authority’s Revolving Fund to pay for the authority’s portion of the work.
According to the agenda report, the agreement is the first step in preparing the analysis that would define the specifics of the project such as the potential sources of funding and components of a possible final project.
This agreement also defines the roles and responsibilities of the parties in preparing the analysis, the timeline of 90 days to complete it and the cost of $166,365. In addition to the Redevelopment Authority’s payment portion, the foundation will pay $75,000, and $16,365 will come from the Carson City Library Gift Fund.
Determining the size and nature of the project is the first necessary step before specifics can be identified for an actual development agreement to be worked out.
At the end of the 90 days, when it comes time for putting together a project development agreement, city and library staff, the foundation, the 14-member Citizens Advisory Committee and the community will be involved.
Supervisors are also scheduled to consider:
• Approving an agreement with Fireside Investments, LLC to lease with an option to buy the former Fireside Building for use as Carson City’s Business Resource Center.
• Adopting on second reading an ordinance proposing a 30 percent rate increase for water projects, which would go into effect July 1.
