Nashua aldermen seeking developers for downtown area
On Tuesday, the Board of Aldermen granted permission for the mayor and the city’s Business and Industrial Development Authority (BIDA) to issue a request-for-proposals for mixed-use development in the area of the High Street parking lot, School Street parking lot and a small parking lot on School Street behind the taxi stand.
“I would like to be able to see what the potential is,” Alderman-at-Large Diane Sheehan said.
“I feel that we are giving up too much authority to these committees sitting out there,” said Chasse, who voted against the proposal.
“I don’t see it as allocating our responsibility,” said McCarthy, stressing that BIDA members will help to produce a quality product.
