Questions Received To-date (08/06/2018)
Q: On page 4 under 2. b narrative, indicates the minimum bid is $ 85,000. Page 7, under 4.j the minimum is $ 135,000. Am I reading this wrong or is there a misprint ?
A: As stated on page 7, under section IV, criteria j: “A cash offer (minimum bid $131,629.00 with purchaser paying all closing costs)”
The statement on page 4, section II, b) Vision: “The community interest in selling this site is significantly more than the sale proceeds gained by the sale of the property as exemplified by the minimum sale price being set $85,000 less than the 2015 valuation provided in the financial review report for the site, which is available on the City’s website.”
This statement from page 4 is in reference to the attached document (accessible via the City’s website here) which provides current and previous valuations of the property. The statement on page 4 is not the minimum sale price. That statement is only referencing the difference of approximately $85,000 between the minimum sale price of $131,629.00 and the valuation of $217,486.00. This difference in price is stated to emphasize the sale proceeds are one of many factors (i.e. community interest) the City considered when setting the minimum sale price and will consider when considering proposals.
Q: I am interested in conducting further site inspections/analyses prior to submitting my application, is this allowed?
A: No, applicant’s responses should be submitted based on the information available. The gas station site is not open to the public to access and to conduct studies that are not initiated or ordered by the City/property owner. Once the City enters into a purchase and sale agreement, or other similar agreement, then the parties to that agreement may have authorization to conduct further studies or investigations into the condition of the property.
Q: Are there limitations to what applicants can do on the site prior to purchasing?
A: Yes, this is not a publicly owned piece of property that is open to the public to access and use. It is not like a park. Anyone entering the property should have prior authorization. “Windshield” assessments are okay.
