Conference center timeline set for site selection, design
Wednesday, January 18, 2012
The city has set a time table for selection of a conference center site.
At the Jefferson City Council meeting Tuesday, city administrator Nathan Nickolaus said the city has sent out requests for proposals with a deadline of Jan. 31. Further studies will be undertaken after proposals are received, with the hope of selecting a site by June 30.
Last year, the city heard a presentation comparing two possible sites for a potential conference center, the old Missouri State Penitentiary and the 200 block of West McCarty, both of which are currently state-owned.
Nickolaus said as long as the council makes a selection by June 30, the design phase should begin July 1.
