The City of Ukiah is reportedly getting ready to take out a $4 million loan from the state to help with upgrades to the Redwood Business Park to get ready for a large retailer which the city would not specify but is probably Costco. The Mendocino Voice reports the City Council has agreed to seek the loan using the civic center as collateral and paying it back using the city’s general fund. In January, the council city staff to apply for a low-interest loan from the California State Infrastructure and Development Bank specifically to develop the 40-acre business park property, which is the proposed site for a Costco. Once that loan is approved, the news site reports, the city hopes to put the work out for bids in the next few months, with the goal of starting the work this summer. Plans include installing traffic lights, and making street improvements on Airport Park Boulevard, Hastings and the freeway interchange at Talmage.
