Acquisition activities are underway for properties required for the construction of the Project. The transactions progressing now are those properties with a direct impact to structures with the new right of way. There are three (3) phases of these activities, not all structurally impacted properties are being pursued concurrently. These activities are being staggered to allow for real estate market to absorb the needs of the owners or business to be displaced within a reasonable timeframe for the success of these displaced parties.
Following the acquisition and relocation of parties impacted by a structural impact, the remaining full acquisitions and relocations will progress, these are the properties anticipated to specifically impacted by loss of access. As the Project Team is working diligently to ensure access can be granted to as many properties as possible, these activities will not progress until such time the Design Team is certain of the Project impacts.
The partial acquisition of property rights will be pursued once the Design Team is certain of the Project impacts.
The final step of the Real Estate activities will be to obtain Temporary Construction Easements for temporary construction impacts, such as driveway construction activities.

Sale of City Owned Property
1535 East Broadway Boulevard contains a building that will be impacted by the construction of the road project.
This property is being offered to provide interested parties a means of salvaging all or a part of the building. This is an open call for proposals. All proposals shall detail how the building will be salvaged and reused. Proposals shall also include a preliminary site plan showing the general site plan requirements. A surety bond may be required to insure the building is properly salvaged and removed from the project area. Any future reconstruction/demolition of the existing building would require City permits and approval from City Planning and Development Services.
The goals for this are twofold: 1) preserve this building that would otherwise be demolished while providing business opportunities on the corridor 2) satisfy project needs while maintaining the project’s financial integrity. On point #2, the sale price for the property shall be calculated as follows: City’s purchase price less, a) the value of the area needed for the project and, b) the estimated cost of demolition.
Proposals for this redevelopment opportunity will be accepted through June 9, 2017. If no proposals have been submitted to the City by that date, demolition of the building will proceed. The public will have an opportunity to work with the City through its demolition contractor to salvage building materials identified prior to demolition.
