Hoffman Bros. accepted an option to purchase the property in June of 2021, after the City Commission approved us moving forward with the purchase.
City staff spent time speaking to neighbors nearby about the project, and sent this letter to about 270 people within a half-mile of the property.
We must request a special use permit, because this area is zoned B-1 Corridor Commercial District. We took this request to the Planning Commission at their Feb. 23, 2022 meeting. You can view that meeting here: https://youtu.be/vBPGy_Ab2Cg, with this item beginning at 1:30:30. The Planning Commission approved the special use permit, so this moves to the City Commission agenda on March 15, 2022 for final approval.
If all goes according to plans, we expect to start construction in the fall of 2022, and start using the facility during the winter season of 2023-2024.
