Bidding for the first phase of the Cornplanter Square project in Oil City is scheduled to open at 10 a.m. Nov. 9, Venango County economic development director Emily Lewis said Tuesday.
Two separate bids will be taken for demolition and abatement and for the roof.
“It’s to ensure that the people bidding on the project understand the scope of the building and the layout,” Lewis said. “The architects will be on-site. It will be an opportunity for the bidders to ask the architects (DesignLabs, of Boston) any questions they may have.”
Research continues into potential uses for the 40 acres next to Venango Regional Airport.
The economic development authority board meets at 10 a.m. on the third Tuesday of each month in the conference room of the Courthouse Annex.
