The town of Tiverton is hoping to attract some big business for the Tiverton Business Park.
A request for proposals is currently posted on the town's website. The town is seeking proposals from qualified firms or individuals seeking to purchase and develop municipally-owned vacant industrial land.
The deadline for individuals or businesses to submit proposals is Nov. 26 at noon.
The town purchased the Tiverton Business Park land in the 1980s with the intention of creating a fully serviced industrial park that would allow the town to expand its tax base and create new employment opportunities for residents.
Except for some preliminary engineering and soil suitability reports, there was no development progress made until the early late 1990s when the town sold a parcel of land to a company known today as Tiverton Power, Inc.
In 2012, the town initiated the planning and engineering of the Tiverton Business Park land into a 66-lot subdivision with minimum lot sizes of 40,000 sq. ft.
The plan, as prepared by DiPrete Engineering of Cranston, included roadway and utility design, wetland designation and verification and a complete storm water management plan.
