Gaithers supporting Wigwam project

Transfer of ownership could be completed this summer

(Continued)

If the transfer of ownership is not completed by July 1, the ACS board may proceed with the demolition of the Wigwam complex.

Winkler said the city's Economic Development Department, is preparing a draft of the request for proposals for the Wigwam complex facility.

"The city will not ask for or accept the Wigwam property without a feasible request for proposal," he said.

The request for proposals will look at the financial viability of the investment group that can maintain and rehabilitate the building, a sound business plan and for programming other than sporting events to take place in the facility.

Winkler said a continuing part of the discussions on the future use of the facility will include an educational purpose for the building that will benefit the Anderson community.

“We’re facing a June 11 deadline,” Thimlar said. “If we can keep adding people as investors we should be able to meet that deadline.

“We’re hoping we don’t have to ask for an extension of the deadline,” he said.

The transfer of the ownership involves ACS, the city of Anderson and WSE.

Thimlar said the hope is to have the transfer of ownership completed by late summer.
