The City of DeKalb is seeking proposals for the redevelopment of a City-owned property on the south side of the downtown.
A request for proposals (RFP) has been released for the acquisition of the City-owned parcel at the southwest corner of Grove Street and South Fourth Street. There are two buildings on the property: the former post office building at 330 Grove St. and the adjacent building at 217 S. Fourth St. The current tenants were notified this summer of the City’s intent to seek proposals for the parcel. The RFP also includes the parking lot on the west side of the property.
Those submitting proposals must specify their plans for using the property. This includes whether it will be used for a commercial or non-profit purpose and whether the buildings will be demolished. Residential uses will not be considered.
All proposals must be received in the City Manager’s Office no later than 10 a.m. Dec. 28, 2022. Proposals will then be reviewed to determine which is in the best interest of the City and public. The City hopes to make a decision on the property early next year.
More information is included with the Request for Proposals, which can be found here.
