Superblock panel nears end of job

The eight-member committee working to help the county shape its Superblock redevelopment plan hopes to have its work done by the end of February.

Pat Barland, county commercial revitalization manager, said the group will meet about once a week this month. The meetings are closed to the public.

The group's job is to draft the section of the county's request for proposals that tells prospective developers what the county would like to see built on the 5.6-acre tract facing Ritchie Highway. The county would give developers about 90 days to respond to the Request For Proposal it plans to issue this spring.

The community is seeking a combination of stores and housing, with some offices and a public performing area.

No developer had stepped forward over the past decade to build the office park that the county had wanted on its vacant land. In the past year, several builders have suggested a development that is mostly housing.
