City of Vallejo Releases Joint RFK with Solano County Seeking Developers for Solano 360
VALLEJO, CA - The City of Vallejo and County of Solano jointly released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for development of the 149-acre Solano County Fairgrounds Site located in Vallejo.
The City and County are working collaboratively to solicit qualifications and a conceptual plan for the development of approximately 111.7 acres of the site with an iconic region-serving public entertainment destination and private mixed-use development, integrated with a revitalized Fair of the Future. The site is adjacent to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and at the intersection of Interstate 80 and California State Highway 37.
The site, conceptually referred to as Solano360, has been used as a County Fairground since 1949, as well as for overflow parking for the adjacent Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. In 2013, the County and City jointly approved a Solano360 Specific Plan to develop a long-term framework for redevelopment, which is also governed by a Development Agreement between the City and County.
The selection process will take place in two phases. Submissions for Phase I will be accepted until January 9, 2020, and will include a review of the developer's statement of qualifications and conceptual plan. Phase II will consist of the top qualified proposers, selected by the Solano360 Implementation Committee, submitting a more detailed proposal. To review the RFQ click here.
