CBJ looking to lease or sell Hurlock Ave. property to fill community need

December 20, 2017 – News

At the end of this month, Juneau Youth Services (JYS) is set to vacate property owned by the City and Borough of Juneau located at 9290 Hurlock Ave in the Mendenhall Valley. Through negotiated sale or lease, which can be for less than fair market value, CBJ is now looking for an entity with experience and capacity to take over use of the property and develop it to meet community needs.

“We’re opening this up for suggestions. Ideally, the property could be used in a way that fulfills a need or gap in the community – perhaps for child care, eldercare or education. We don’t know what ideas are out in the community,” Lands Manager Greg Chaney said.

For close to 50 years, JYS utilized the site as its Cornerstone Campus, which provided transitional housing for adolescents and young adults. The property is near the Pipeline Skate Park at the corner of Mendenhall Loop Road and Hurlock Avenue. It contains a large, aging facility with three additional buildings totaling over 6,400 square feet. The total size of the parcel is 36,122 square feet, including enough gravel parking for about 20 vehicles. CBJ Lands & Resources Division is holding an open house of the property on Monday, Jan. 8 from noon to 6 p.m.

Interested entities are encouraged to consult the 2017 Assembly Goals, Juneau Economic Development Plan and the Housing Acting Plan, which provide insight into community needs.

Proposals and completed applications are due 2 p.m. Alaska Time on January 16, 2018. Read the complete Request for Proposals and application details here.

Lands staff plans to make a recommendation regarding the property to the Assembly Lands Committee at its Jan. 29 meeting. If no interest is shown or no acceptable proposals are received, CBJ may sell the property for fair market value.
