Recommendation and Proposed Motion

Recommendation:  Staff recommends Council select Rosewood Lakes Sports Village, LLC for the development, operation, and maintenance of the Pembroke Recreational Complex, which includes Rosewood Lakes Golf Course, in response to the Request for Qualifications  #030089 and direct staff to bring a Exclusive Negotiating Agreement  for City Council review. 

 

Proposed Motion:  I move to approve staff recommendation.

Staff Report Formal Body

Summary: The City of Reno released Request for Qualifications (RFQ) #030089, seeking qualified candidates for the development, operation and maintenance of a recreational complex through an open process.  The City owns five parcels around Pembroke Drive and is interested in having them developed with recreational amenities that include athletic fields, golf, open space, and other amenities commonly located with a public outdoor recreational complex. Rosewood Lakes Golf Course is included in these parcels.  One response was received.  Staff recommends Council select Rosewood Lakes Sports Village, LLC for the development, operation, and maintenance of the Pembroke Recreational Complex in response to the Request for Qualifications #030089.  Staff recommends that an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement be prepared for approval by the City Council to cover the period of time while the developer prepares a proposal for the complex to be reviewed by the City Council.

 

Previous Council Action: On January 25, 2017, Council approved RFQ #030089 for the development, operation, and maintenance of the Pembroke Recreational Complex.

 

Background: The proposed project contains five parcels that the City of Reno owns.  A corresponding map of the location of the parcels is included in the proposed RFQ.  Below is a brief history of each parcel.   

   

1.                                        Three Parcels on Pembroke Drive

021-050-01 44.36 acres

021-050-02 52.29 acres

021-050-03 14.55 acres

            Total 111.2 acres

 

These three parcels were purchased by the City of Reno Sewer Fund to use effluent (reuse) water from the sewer plant.  The successful development will be required to use effluent water on these parcels equal to or greater than current use of effluent water on site.

 

2.                                                        Rosewood Lakes Golf Course

The City of Reno developed, maintained, and operated Rosewood Lakes Golf Course in 1990 as an 18-hole championship golf course.  In 2012 the City of              Reno entered into an agreement to construct the southeast connector roadway through the middle of the golf course.  In 2014, the City entered into an operation agreement with The First Tee of Northern Nevada for Rosewood Lakes Golf Course.  There are eight remaining holes and a driving range on site. The City is interested in having a golf component as part of the proposed recreational complex.  The City prefers that the successful candidate work The First Tee of Northern Nevada into their operation plan.  

 

3.                                                        Parcels 021-160-50 and 021-771-01

These parcels will be zoned as open space through the development process.

 

Discussion: Attached to this staff report is the response from Rosewood Lakes Sports Village, LLC (RLSV).  If awarded, RLSV will be responsible for the costs to develop, operate, and maintain the property as a public parkland/open space.  The overall goal of this project is to increase the number of athletic fields for the local athletic programs as well as create an economic impact for Reno by creating a sports complex that can host large regional and national athletic tournaments. 

 

RLSV has proposed the following components for Pembroke Recreational Complex:

         9-hole golf course, clubhouse, driving range, two hole golf academy training zone and pitch/putt practice green and traps

         11 natural turf baseball fields with bleacher facilities

         4 natural turf soccer fields with bleacher facilities

         3 playgrounds

         3-mile cross country run/walk course

         45,000 square foot indoor field house

         30,000 square foot restaurant/sports bar

         restrooms and 1400 parking stalls with solar panels

         100,000 square foot data center

 

If Council approves the selection of RLSV in response to the RFQ #030089, the next step will be to bring forward an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) for Council approval.  The ENA provides for exclusive negotiations between the City of Reno and RLSV with respect to (i) the transfer, lease or other disposition of the Property; (ii) any proposal to develop the property; (iii) any special events to be conducted on the property; and (iv) the terms of any development agreement involving the Property. The ENA will require community involvement with the Neighborhood Advisory Board, sports organizations, Recreation and Parks Commission, and homeowners associations.

 

Financial Implications:  None at this time.

 

Legal Implications:  Legal review completed for compliance with City procedures and Nevada Law.
