Deadline extended for redevelopment opportunity in Tahoe City

Published on December 06, 2017

Due to growing public interest and to allow ample time to respond during the busy holiday and ski season, the deadline to submit a letter of interest for the redevelopment of the old Tahoe City firehouse properties has been extended to Feb. 28. An addendum to the request for information has been added to help answer potential questions from submitters.

In early November, Placer County released a RFI document inviting experienced mixed-use development firms and other interested parties to submit letters of interest for a long-term lease and the reuse development concept for the Tahoe City firehouse properties.

Since its release, the county has received feedback requesting a deadline extension to help interested parties prioritize and organize ideas and goals.

Located in the heart of Tahoe City, the lakefront property offers access to outstanding recreation and proximity to the Tahoe City town center, transit hubs, bike trails, ski resorts, marinas and residential communities.

The county-owned Tahoe City firehouse properties include three buildings: the former North Tahoe Fire Station 51, Tahoe Community Center building and the former visitor center building.

Prospective developers will have an additional opportunity to visit the Tahoe City firehouse properties guided by county staff, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Jan. 19. The open house tour will take place at the property located at 300 North Lake Boulevard in Tahoe City. Attendance is voluntary; interested parties are not required to attend.

The deadline for the RFI is 5 p.m. on Feb. 28. Review the background materials, the RFI and addendum.
