Berlin releases qualification requests for potential development, purchase of Farmington Avenue land

Record-Journal


BERLIN — The town recently announced it is officially inviting proposals for the purchase and development of nearly 4 acres on Farmington Avenue.

A legal notice posted by the town says Request for Qualifications (RFQ) are being accepted until Tuesday, Dec. 5.

The Town Council has been discussing the possible redevelopment of the town-owned parcels at 889. 903, and 913 Farmington Ave. since a plan to use the land for a new $16 million police station was voted down in a referendum.

The property, divided into three parcels, has been a focus of transit oriented development downtown. The town hired CivicMoxie, a consulting firm, to look at future development.

Several meeting were held to discuss possibilities.

“We’re looking at what it could be,” Economic Development Director Chris Edge said during initial discussions earlier this year.

The notice states that the RFQ can be rejected and is not a contract or commitment.
