iBerkshires.com reports North Adams is giving some extra time for potential buyers of five properties, including the historic Mohawk Theater, to get their bids in.
Requests for proposals were issued in early December for the Main Street theater as well as the Windsor Mill, Sullivan School, 568 Mohawk Trail and 367 Houghton St. Several these properties have been up for sale in the past.
The bids were due on Jan. 4, but that has been extended to Jan. 22.
The past two administrations have been trying to offload properties no longer deemed usable or productive for the city with some success. The former city yard is now a Cumberland Farms and former Johnson School sold last year; the sale of the Notre Dame church and school was approved in October. A number of smaller properties were also sold at auction in October.
