Possible master developers for CNWS Reuse Project make presentations

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 10 and 11, three firms interested in being considered to serve as master developer for the former Concord Naval Weapons Station will make presentations in public meetings before the Concord City Council.

On Nov. 20, 2014 the Concord Local Reuse Authority received proposals from the three firms for initial phases of the reuse of the former Concord Naval Weapons Station. Proposals were received from Catellus Development Company, Lennar Urban, and SunCal Development Company. Staff has completed an initial review of the proposals and sought clarifications from each of the firms regarding their submittals.

Catellus will make its presentation at the regular City Council meeting on Feb. 10 starting at 6:30 p.m. Lennar Urban and SunCal will present at a special City Council meeting on Feb. 11 beginning at 6 p.m. The presentations will provide a public introduction to the concept and vision that each firm proposes for implementation of the adopted Concord Reuse Project Area Plan. The general format of the meetings will include a 45-minute presentation by the proposer and then an hour and fifteen minutes for public and City Council initial observations and questions. This is the beginning of the formal selection process; no decisions or staff recommendations will occur at these meetings.

Both meetings will be held in the City Council Chambers at Civic Center, 1950 Parkside Drive. The meetings will also be televised live on Concord Cable TV channels 28 (Comcast), 29 (Astound), and 99 (AT&T), and streamed on the City's website, Videos of the meetings will also be available for viewing the next day from the website.

Copies of the proposals can be downloaded from the project library at after February 2. The summary of staff clarifications and written answers to questions raised at the February 10 and 11 presentations will be available to download on or about February 18. Electronic copies of the various materials can be picked up at the Concord Civic Center in Building A within the same time frames noted above. A printed copy of all materials can be viewed at the Concord Public Library, 2900 Salvio St.
