At this time little is actually known about the timeline or requirements for a headquarters office and it is fair to say this could be a two-year (or longer) process to secure that information.
With that in mind, we are beginning the process of inventorying land and buildings, along with partnership proposals (for a P3) that may be suitable along with contact for follow up information. New opportunities may be submitted at any time and we do ask that if the availability of property submitted to us changes that you notify us.
