The city has found a potential buyer for the old fire hall.
The city plans to sell the the site for $625,000 to 1117731 BC Ltd., a company based in Prince George. The sale is conditional on rezoning the land, currently institutional.
City council will formally receive the offer in a closed meeting on June 24, and will consider a proposed zoning amendment at their regular meeting open to the public the same day.
The numbered company is based in Prince George. The owners could not be reached for comment this week.
The city hired Ron Rodgers of NorthEast BC Realty to broker the sale of the surplus building and land. The property had been listed for $758,000, and was dropped to $689,000.
The city has said it's treating the redevelopment of the fire hall as part of its downtown revitalization plan, with preference for a mixed-used retail and commercial development that could include housing.
If the deal closes, it will be the first property sold under the city's new sale of strategic lands policy. The policy was adopted in summer 2017 to sell surplus municipal lands under specific planning guidelines based on what the city has identified is the best use of the property.
