The deadline for proposals to develop a commercial health office complex on 20 acres across from Buhlow Lake has been extended to June 29.
The initial Request for Proposals by the Pineville Downtown Development District had a June 22 deadline.
An addendum revising the date was issued Monday afternoon.
The tract is across Rainbow Drive from an existing Y-Not Stop.
The district’s agent for the sale and development is Pan American Engineers.
The district is a special taxing entity established by legislation.
It is capable of levying ad valorem taxes and/or sales and use taxes within its boundaries in conjunction with planning, developing, constructing, or acquiring services, improvements, or facilities.
The District has been designated as a local redevelopment authority for the City of Pineville’s Downtown area, and has been authorized to incur debt, including revenue bonds, from revenue sources for its enumerated purposes.
It is governed by a board consisting of seven members appointed by the City of Pineville, the Rapides Parish Police Jury, the Central Louisiana Economic Development Alliance, the Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce, and the North Rapides Business and Industry Alliance. Mike Tudor is chairman.
