No proposals received on GAF property development

Local News

Developers who once showed interest in revamping the former GAF materials site failed to submit a formal proposal for development; now Erie Events Officials want to know why.

Erie Events began soliciting formal proposals back in September for the more than 12-acre property along the Bayfront.  Erie Events was hoping to hear from several agencies who expressed interest in developing the property to the company’s specifications, creating a mixed-use site with public access.

Casey Wells, Executive Director of Erie Events, says, “so, consequently, we are going to back and talk to them to determine why and identify their concerns and then move forward appropriately”.

Wells said they will still accept proposals from developers even though the deadline passed earlier this month.
