Unatego School District receives Three Proposals for former Otego Elementary School


The Unatego Board of Education is pleased to announce that following a Request for Proposals (RFP) to repurpose the former Otego Elementary School building, they received three viable proposals from potential developers this week.

A special Board of Education meeting is scheduled for October 28 at 6:30 PM to allow the three developers an opportunity to present their plans for the building to the entire board and answer any questions board members might have. Following that, the Board will make a decision as to which proposal to accept at their regular Board meeting scheduled for November 4.

The three proposals are available on the District’s website: www.unatego.org or may be viewed in person at the Unatego District Office.

Dirig Design

Dirig Design, a ten year old drafting and design firm located in Wells Bridge, NY, focuses on custom kitchens and millwork. Their proposal envisions a mixed use residential/commercial building, with a seven year, $750,000 investment plan resulting in nine apartments and sixteen mixed use commercial spaces when complete.   See the details here:
