No. 27451 REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR THE PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CITY OWNED 3rd AND MAIN LOT The City of Kalispell is seeking proposals from development firms seeking to privately finance, construct, and manage a redevelopment project on what is currently a City owned parking lot within Downtown Kalispell, Montana. On December 4, 2017, Kalispell City Council adopted The Downtown Plan as an amendment to the City of Kalispell Growth Policy Plan-It 2035 by Resolution No. 5846. The Downtown Plan addresses key topics that affect the future growth and development of Downtown Kalispell. The Downtown Plan specifically addresses the need to re-develop City owned surface parking lots into more beneficial uses to eliminate blight and increase tax base. The City is looking for development proposals on the 3rd and Main lot (formerly known as "Valley Bank lot") at the northwest corner of Main Street and 3rd Street West. This property has been chosen due to its high visibility location along Main Street and its location in the newly established Downtown Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District. Redevelopment of this property will further the City's mission of promoting economic growth, improving area employment opportunities, and expanding tax base. Following successful completion of a recorded Developer's Agreement, the selected developer will receive credit against the 2020 appraised value of the property based upon the tax increment generated by the project. Information and instructions to proposers, submittal format and requirements, and information on the selection process are available on the city website at https://www.kalispell.com/bids.aspx. Five (5) copies of the proposal must be received by the City Clerk at 201 First Avenue East, Kalispell, Montana, by 4:00 pm local time on Friday, July 9, 2021. Request for Proposals that are faxed or emailed will not be accepted. After review of the information provided on the website, general questions pertaining to the project should be directed to Katharine King, Assistant Director of Community Development, at kking@kalispell.com.
