The Dauphin County Redevelopment Authority is seeking parties interested in buying and redeveloping the former Hummelstown municipal complex.
Hummelstown vacated the site at 130 and 136 S. Hanover streets at the end of last year after building a new municipal facility. The old municipal building is about 5,300 square feet and sits on more than one-half acre of land.
The property also includes a single-family house to the north of the municipal building. The house is owned by the borough.
A joint committee formed by the county redevelopment authority and the borough must sign off on a new developer for the site. Officials say they hope to get proposals that support the borough’s community master plan, which was completed in 2016.
The plan envisions projects that would attract new restaurants and boutique retail shops, as well as additional housing and professional offices.
Qualified submissions are due April 6. Any questions about the request should be submitted in writing to George Connor, executive director of the authority, at email@example.com. The deadline for questions is March 2.
The county is planning mandatory walk-through meetings at the site for developers who plan to submit proposals. Those pre-submittal meetings will be held on Feb. 21 and Feb. 23.
The minimum bid to buy the site has been set at $450,000, based on a property appraisal, Connor said.
A developer will be selected May 17.
