Ten responses have come in to a request for proposals for a possible public-private partnership with Gary/Chicago International Airport. They include firms and organizations with experience in a range of sectors including aviation, financial and real estate management as well as urban and environmental planning. An ad hoc committee will review, evaluate and recommend proposals to the Airport Authority Board in September.
"We are very pleased with the number of respondents and the breadth of their expertise," said Carrie J. Hightman, chair of the Ad Hoc Committee and executive vice president and chief legal officer of NiSource Inc. "These respondents demonstrate the value that can be unlocked at the airport to create good jobs and sustainable development for Gary and the region."
The deadline for submissions to the RFP [request for proposals] was 5 p.m. (CDT) on Monday August 26, 2013.
In addition to the public-private partnership exploration, major construction at the airport of a $166 million runway extending the main 7,000-foot runway by 1,900 feet continues.
