Background on the Tangerine Plaza Site. In 2017, city officials began considering redevelopment and re-use options for Tangerine Plaza after a second major grocery store closed and the signature shopping plaza was conveyed to the city. After implementing a pilot designed to shuttle residents to alternative grocery stores, convening several community conversations and completing a market analysis, the city is ready to take the next steps to find a sustainable business for the 47,000 SF space.
