Staff received confirmation from all three property owners they are still interested in selling their properties to the City for the new Recreation Center and City Plaza. The City received the notice to proceed, which allows the City to begin incurring expenses. Staff is waiting for clarification from the State as to whether a new appraisal will be required.
