RDA vets potential buyers
By Michael Moore
The Granada Theater on Monterey Road in downtown Morgan Hill could be demolished to make room for a mixed-use project.
City officials will soon determine who gets to purchase four downtown Morgan Hill properties, based on how qualified a list of potential buyers are to develop projects that support their vision of a community with a variety of living, shopping and entertainment options.
A committee of Morgan Hill Redevelopment Agency staff and citizens have been in the process of reviewing 15 responses to a request for qualifications to develop the four properties, which was posted last year. They will recommend a buyer or buyers for the properties to the city council, serving as the RDA board at an April 1 special meeting, according to David Heindel, assistant to the city manager for downtown revitalization.
