The Ohlone College Board posted a Request for Bids for development of its surplus frontage property on Mission Blvd.

Two bids were formally received on April 9th. One from Clark Realty and one from Carmel Partners. There was an oral amendment to the Carmel Partners' bid to include a one time payment of additional rent. The college's attorney asked that they send him the amendment in writing.

Both bids met the terms of the Request for Bids. The bids were reviewed at a special Board meeting on April 16th.
