Background: Civic Center Redevelopment Site #1 (CCRS #1) is a key City-owned property located at the southeast corner of Rockwell Street and Stafford Place, within both the Old Town/Civic Center Subarea and the City's Old Town/Civic Center Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District #3. The approximately 4.25-acre site was identified by the community as a very high-priority revitalization project. The 2007 Old Town/Civic Center Subarea Plan called for this former industrial/warehouse property to be redeveloped with a pedestrian friendly, high quality, moderate density, single-family residential project (Click here for 2007 concept site plan.)
Status: September 2017: The City Council approved the final development plans for Airhart Construction's proposed Stafford Place redevelopment of CCRS #1 by Ordinance O2017-50 (PDF). The approved project includes 27, semi-custom, detached single family homes on relatively small lots. The average sales price for each of these homes is projected to be approximately $420,000. Additional information is available on the Airhart Construction website.
May 2017: The City Council approved a redevelopment and land sale agreement (RDA) with Airhart Development LLC. Copies of the draft RDA and supporting staff recommendation memorandum to the City Council can be accessed here.
