In an effort to facilitate the revitalization of downtown Reno in accordance with the goals of the City’s Downtown Action Plan, ReImagine Reno Master Plan, and “Thriving Downtown and University District” strategic priority, the City Council directed City staff on January 23, 2019 to initiate a Request For Interest (RFI) process to identify potential redevelopment or revitalization opportunities for the City-owned CitiCenter property located on the southwest corner of Center and Fourth Streets. The Office of Economic Development prepared and circulated an RFI to all known parties that might have an interest, in addition to posting it on the City website and promoting it through the City’s vendor contact system. Four written concepts were received by the submittal deadline of Friday, April 19, 2019, listed in alphabetical order:
- Chad Rennaker, Principal; Palindrome Communities
- David Asher, President; Buy Nevada First
- Michael Pagni, Esq.; on behalf of Eldorado Resorts
- Steven L. Nielsen, Principal; P3 Partners
The City Council is scheduled to receive a 10 minute presentation from each concept submitter on May 22nd, during the regularly scheduled Council Meeting. An agenda will be posted at www.reno.gov approximately 7 days prior to the meeting. Comments and suggestions may be sent in advance of the meeting to: Aric A Jensen, AICP, Revitalization Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
