In Plant City, leaders are looking to the future — including vertical horizons.
At the Community Redevelopment Agency Meeting Monday, March 27, City Commissioners approved authorizing three companies to receive the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the city’s Midtown redevelopment project, a 15-acre area adjacent to Historic Downtown.
E2L Real Estate Solutions, Green Mills Group and Lefrois Builders and Developers all submitted responses to the city’s request for qualifications for the project in February.
A committee consisting of City Manager Mike Herr, Assistant City Manager Bill McDaniel, Chief Financial Officer Diane Reichard, Plant City Economic Development Corp. President Jake Austin and Planning and Zoning Director Mark Hudson unanimously approved recommending all three companies to the CRA to receive the proposals.
“Considering that all three firms have a variety of niches, we decided that we recommend all three receive the request for proposal,” City Manager Mike Herr said.
While all three interested developers have experience in Florida, their specialties differ.
