Rio Nuevo’s attempt to develop a downtown parcel hit a snag.
Peach Properties, one of two groups that bid on 8.5-acres of Rio Nuevo property where the Greyhound station sits, filed a protest on how the bid was awarded.
Ron Schwabe , Peach Properties CEO, contends board member Alberto Moore violated district policy to remain impartial when he announced his preference for Allan Norville’s proposal before the board scored the proposals. Moore then gave Peach’s proposal a scant 70 points out of a possible 1,000 for the oral presentation.
