The City of Morro Bay invites proposals from qualified individuals and entities (“Proposers”) to redevelop Lease Site 62/62W, located at 551 Embarcadero Road, Morro Bay, CA 93442, currently operating as Kayak Horizons kayak rentals and sales. The Site includes land and water lease sections.
The City intends to select a Proposer to redevelop the Property. The Property will be available on a long-term ground lease basis after Concept Plans for site redevelopment are approved. The existing lease on this site expires on September 30, 2018. Since, however, design, planning and permitting can take substantial time, the City is intending to leave the existing tenant in place on a lease holdover until Concept Plans for site redevelopment are approved and a new lease executed with the successful respondent to this Request for Proposals.
The City desires to solicit proposals to ensure maximization of public benefit from redevelopment and a long-term lease agreement for the Site. To do so, it is seeking Proposers who have the proven experience, financial resources, and professional expertise to deliver the highest quality and economically feasible project that is consistent with and best implements the land and water uses outlined in the City’s Waterfront Master Plan, Local Coastal Plan, Harbor Department Lease Management Policy and City Council Goals and Objectives.
Qualified Proposers may visit the City of Morro Bay’s Website, www.morrobayca.gov under the Bid Postings section for copies of the Request for Proposals, or written inquiries regarding the Request for Proposals can be obtained by contacting: Eric Endersby, Harbor Director, Morro Bay Harbor Department, 1275 Embarcadero Road, Morro Bay, CA 93442, 805-772-6254, . Project MB-2018-HRFP1. Proposals due September 28, 2018.
