TEMPLE TERRACE — City officials have had more than a dozen meetings and phone conversations with developers and business people inquiring about the 22 acres of land Temple Terrace wants to sell to build a true downtown.
No one, however, has submitted an informal plan as to what they might want to build there, as advertised in a “request for qualifications” that was due in late May, said Marty Hudson, the city’s redevelopment director.
“That’s not unusual,” he said before a town hall meeting last week.
“The request for qualifications was really to put us back on the map in the development community and say: ‘Here we are again. We now own the land; we’re back in business,’ so to speak.”
