CORNER BROOK — The deadline has come and gone, but the City of Corner Brook is not saying anything about how much interest there has been in naming the regional civic centre.
Currently known as the Pepsi Centre, the facility’s naming rights were the subject of a request for proposals issued earlier this summer.
The 10-year deal with Browning Harvey to call the arena the Pepsi Centre expires in 2014.
The deadline for submissions was Sept. 20.
When asked Monday about the level of interest in the request for proposals process, the City of Corner Brook would not make any comment about how many submissions have been received.
Gina MacArthur, the city’s communications officer, also could not say how long it was expected to take for staff to review the proposals and make a recommendation to city council.
She said it was also difficult to determine how long it would be before the next city council would be in a position to make a decision.
“It will depend on a lot of factors, including the fact that we have to get a new council sworn in and put them through orientation before we put anything to them for a decision,” MacArthur said in an email.
“It could very well be on their first agenda though.”
