There is little interest in redeveloping Truro’s old buildings.
The town had issued a request for proposals in January for five vacant or soon-to-be vacant buildings. The invitation for development proposals closed Monday morning with only two proposals received for Willow Street Elementary School.
That leaves four properties (two parcels of land on the waterfront currently used as public works facilities, the nearby former jail and Alice Street Elementary School) with no proposals.
“People may be holding off a little bit based on the economic climate,” Mayor Bill Mills suggested, adding that the town may have to cast to a larger audience with its advertising.
