CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The town of Chicopee is soliciting redevelopment proposals for two city-owned properties.
The two properties are located near Chicopee Center and Chicopee Falls.
Chicopee Mayor John Vieau is heading the redevelopment proposals, which seek to repurpose the two long-vacant downtown sites.
Organizers believe this is an opportunity for the city to grow alongside other developments, such as a senior center and a new assisted living facility.
Chicopee Associate Planner Nathan Moreau told 22News that the redevelopment proposal is a unique opportunity for Chicopee.
“You don’t get the opportunity to build something brand new in a downtown all the time so that I think is something really unique,” said Moreau.
Redevelopment proposals will be due February 14 at 11, in the Purchasing Department of city hall.
