The City of Russell acquired the property in April of 2021. This approximately 1,248 square foot single-level commercial building has alleyway access to the rear, with space for parking. The City is seeking proposals for re-use or adaptive re-use.
There is a planned Downtown Revitalization project slated for this area in the next 2 – 3 years
Through the RFI process, the City seeks to engage a not-for-profit entity or for-profit entity for the possible use of the property. The goal is to seek interest and ideas to put the building to use and increase the commercial traffic in the Central Business District. Proposals may include keeping the property as a retail storefront or other acceptable use within the C-1 zoning district.
This RFI process may result in selecting an entity to provide more detailed proposals or whatever steps the City may deem appropriate, including a lease of the site or a contract for sale. Any accepted user will be responsible for all utilities, sidewalk snow and ice removal, property maintenance – including plumbing, HVAC, electric, building envelope issues, and any applicable taxes or fees.
The Governing Body of the City of Russell will make final approval of the project proposal. Selection criteria are subject to change by the Governing Body.
