WESTMORLAND — The City Council here, sitting as the city Redevelopment Agency board, will vote on a disposition and development agreement that would sell property for $1 to a development company to build a 50-room motel.
The council will decide whether to sell property on the Northeast corner of Highway 86 and H Street to High Spirits LP to develop a motel that would bring in needed tax revenue to the city.
High Spirits LP is owned by Dr. Veerinder Anand of El Centro and Rick Desai of Las Vegas.
The project will cost $2.5 million.
Mike Gaston of The Holt Group of El Centro said the $1 sale is to give the developer an incentive to build the motel in the city. The Holt Group offers planning and engineering services to the city.
The property was purchased from Clark Seybert by the RDA for $42,000
Also during the RDA meeting, the board will decide whether to sell property on the Southwest corner of Third and G streets for $1 for the development of a residential drug-treatment facility for women.
