Along with the big hospital building we also have some along Devonia Street as well as several on Roane Street that we will be making available for purchase on June 22nd. This will be a day hosted by the Harriman Industrial Board so that any interested parties can walk through each building, ask questions and talk with people from the Chamber of Commerce, the City, State and the KCDC. These people will be able to answer questions as to the history of our area, demographics, details about the Urban Renewal District and other things that we have been working on to make our downtown vibrant once again. This day will be the start of a two week process where the IDB will accept letters or requests for use/purchase for each building. Some things that the board will consider will be the proposed use as well as price. We want to be sure that we are attracting and getting quality buyers for these buildings that will add to and enhance our downtown.
Similar to 123 years ago when the East Tn Land Company marketed and invited buyers to come to Harriman to form our city we too are hoping to attract interested buyers to come and start the final phase of our downtown revitalization! These are exciting times, please come out and support us and be a part of the new Harriman!
