SUISUN CITY — The Suisun City Council extended its disposition and development agreement Tuesday with waterfront master developer Main Street West for 60 days to get legal problems with the state Department of Finance settled before putting together an updated agreement with Main Street West.
The status of Main Street West’s redevelopment-backed master developer agreement was thrown into doubt after the state eliminated redevelopment. The state is now in the process of deciding what do to with all of the funds and assets that were a part of redevelopment agencies such as Suisun City’s.
Main Street West’s agreement with Suisun City had given them authority to develop more than a dozen parcels in downtown Suisun City, including the former Crystal School site.
The developer filed a complaint on Feb. 11 with Solano County Superior Court, asking the court to validate the continued enforcement of the development agreement. The case was moved to Sacramento in May. Attorneys for Main Street West and Suisun City are presently trying to engage in settlement discussions with the state Department of Finance.
Tuesday’s extension is the third such one the council approved.
