The city of Carlsbad will seek requests for proposals to develop portions of The Crossings at Carlsbad adjacent to the city-owned golf course.
City council recently voted to authorize the Carlsbad Financing Authority to issue a request for proposals to develop, through ground-lease arrangements, the West View Lot 9 at The Crossings, consisting of two parcels totaling approximately 3 acres. The financing authority will evaluate proposals from prospective developers and make recommendations to city leaders.
The measure also authorizes the city to administer and manage any long-term leases and distribute lease revenue to member agencies of the Carlsbad Public Financing Authority.
The city-owned land is currently used for overflow parking at The Crossings. It is among several underutilized municipal properties that the city is looking to put to use for commercial and related development.
