School superintendent Caryn Gibson reports that a bid on the old City Market building was declined.
As detailed in the Dec. 28 edition of the Delta County Independent, the site was eyed for Delta-Montrose Technical College expansion, a business incubator and Delta County Economic Development offices.
"The owners of the site came back with a high counteroffer, but it is not feasible for the tech college to purchase the site, remodel and make all the upgrades at this time," Gibson said. "The technical college is pursuing other sites or can add to the current facility."
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
