The deadline for requesting a public presentation (February 26, 2021) has not been changed.

Mayor Sarno stated, “We hope to generate interest from applicants and we are sensitive to the changing environment caused by the COVID–19 Coronavirus pandemic since the last round.  We are building on the experience gained in the first round of applications and approvals, and I am sure we can build on what we have learned to provide an economic impact for the City and new opportunities for employment and entrepreneurship.”

Responses to the RFQ/P are due by 2:00 pm on March 22, 2021.  The City will conduct an internal review and announce the names of proposer(s) qualifying for the right to negotiate a Host Community Agreement with the City on April 12, 2021.
