Concord postpones selection of Master Developer


Tonight's Concord City Council meeting, during which councilmembers were to discuss the selection of the Master Developer for the Concord Naval Weapons Station, has been postponed due to an unexpected lack of a quorum.

Councilmembers, sitting as the Local Reuse Authority (LRA), were scheduled to review proposed Term Sheet revisions and an analysis of alternatives before deciding whether to select Lennar as the Phase 1 Master Developer of the Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse Area Plan.

The 5:30 p.m. closed session scheduled for this evening will be held as planned.

A new date for the meeting will be announced later this week. For more information, visit the Reuse Project website at www.concordreuseproject.org.
