246 NW 8th Ave Two buildable lots







DBCLT’s request to acquire the properties from the CRA include the following conditions based on the proposal and any other terms deemed necessary by the CRA Board:


1.                     The DBCLT will construct either one (1) or two (2)-story models, three (3) bedroom, two (2) bathroom single family homes with enclosed one (1) or two (2) car garages. 


At the meeting, the CRA Board directed CRA Staff and Legal Counsel to negotiate the Purchase and Sale Agreements for conveyance of the properties listed above to DBCLT based upon the framework provided in the Letter of Intent, subject to any additional terms and conditions requested by the CRA Board.  


Attached is the Purchase and Sale Agreements between the CRA and DBCLT for 246 NW 8th Avenue. The terms of the agreements generally consist of the following: purchase price of $1,000, down payment requirement of $100 (10% of the purchase price) per property, inspection period of 45 days from the effective date and specified development time frame that includes the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy within 24 months of the effective date.


A separate Repurchase Agreement was prepared for each property which is to be executed upon closing that includes conditions that will survive the closing and allows the CRA 1) the right to repurchase the property if a Certificate of Occupancy for a new single family home is not received within 24 months (Development Time Frame) as identified in the Original Agreement and 2) the right to review and approve proposed construction plans prior to DBCLT submitting for building permit.
