The Tuesday Richland City Council workshop agenda includes three items. The packet includes just the bare bones information. The Observer emailed Interim City Manager Jon Amundson and he provided more information on the Thayer Property.
Here is the information provided by Amundson:
Notice the first paragraph after the summary: “Staff has received developer interest in several parcels of City-owned property off of the south end of Thayer Drive.” Bargain price sale of city-owned properties always starts out this way.
Also up for discussion:
North Horn Rapids Transmission Planning & Scheduling – Clint Whitney, Energy Services Director
Transportation Grant Opportunities – Pete Rogalsky, Public Works Director Rogalsky works hard for transportation grants.
The land at the end of Thayer has had occasional interest over the years. It’s pretty useless for most purposes.
Apparently, there has been recent interest and that’s why the city has moved to surplus it.
