Supes taking next step in development deal
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) between the Carson City Redevelopment Authority, the Hop and Mae Adams Foundation and P3 Development.
The board also will consider authorizing the expenditure of $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 which would define the specifics of the project such as the desired projects elements, 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.
