Hello, welcome to Economic Development and Planning for the City of Barstow. We would like to take a moment to share with you several important projects that have come to fruition in the Community Development division over this past quarter.
Community Development Department
Successor Agency for the City of Barstow:
The Successor Agency for the City of Barstow approved the sale of APN: 0427-062-42-0-000, situated in the Barstow Business Park on West Main Street to Nathan Ellis. The sale of the parcel keeps with the Agency’s Long Range Property Management Plan as approved by the Department of Finance for the State of California.
Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) with Eagle Barstow 55 LLC – Sr. Housing Project:
Eagle Barstow 55 LLC requested a six (6) month extension on the ENA from the City Council at the request of Supervisor Ramos. Due to administrative changes at the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), additional time is needed to develop a pro forma on the residential component and HUD voucher conversion requirements and other program changes that could affect the project. The City Council approved the extension of the ENA for Eagle Barstow 55 LLC.
Request for Statement of Qualifications – Professional Marketing / Real Estate Services:
A Request for Statement of Qualifications for Professional Marketing and Real Estate Services for City Owned Property was sent to local real estate offices and the High Desert Association of REALTORS and posted on the City’s webpage (www.barstowca.org) on August 23, 2017. The selected firm will be responsible for the development and implementation of a marketing strategy that will lead to the successful disposition of various city owned properties. The firm’s primary responsibility is to market and sell property held by the former Barstow Redevelopment Agency.
