The City of Williston is taking steps to revitalize a prime spot for commercial redevelopment near Motel 6. Williston is removing the buildings, structures and underground storage tanks at the former Herman Oil gas station site to make way for new projects.

The city has issued a call for bids for the three separate parcels located at 1201 16th Ave. W. This is the second time in less than a year that the city has sought development proposals for the site; but this time the city is taking care of the remediation. The bids are due by Aug. 23 at 3 p.m.

“The actual completion date is going to be determined by what environmental issues we find when doing the tanks (6) removal,” said Dave Bell, Williston Public Works Director. “The demolition is scheduled to start on Tuesday, Aug. 14.”

The three parcels are similar in size: Lot 1 is 2.2 acres; Lot 2 is 1.6 acres and Lot 3 is 1.5 acres. The properties are adjacent to Motel 6 and the Trinity Health building. The site is a prime location with significant traffic that would benefit a potential new restaurant, retail store or medical services.

The bid opening will be held on Aug. 23 at 3 p.m. at City Hall at 22 E. Broadway.

A committee will evaluate the proposals and bring its recommendation to the City Commission at a meeting to be announced.

For more information please contact David Tuan, City Administrator, at 22 E. Broadway or call 701-713-3800.
