Less than a week after Edgartown issued a request for proposals to renovate and lease the Yellow House on Main street, 11 potential developers have expressed interest in the property.

They include downtown business owners, a real estate professional, a chef, an attorney and even a former owner of the property.

The town took the property, formerly owned by a trust for the Benjamin Hall family, by eminent domain in June. Last week the selectmen approved a 47-page request for proposals (RFP).

On Monday town procurement officer Juliet Mulinare told selectmen 11 people had requested information. “There’s interest for sure,” Ms. Mulinare said.

“Better than nobody,” selectman Michael Donaroma said.

The interested parties to date are: Mark Nicotera, who works for Trademark Services in Vineyard Haven; Anne Cook, an artist; Ben Hall, an Edgartown attorney whose family previously owned the Yellow House; Julia Celeste, owner of nearby Rosewater Market and Rosewater Wine and Spirits; Jim Joyce, a broker with Carroll and Vincent Real Estate in Edgartown; Geno Courtney, a well-known downtown businessman who owns numerous commercial properties; Scott Cummings, the executive chef at the Oak Bluffs restaurants Down Island and 20bynine; Christopher Graham, whose affiliations were not immediately known; Karen Fitzgerald, who works for Project Dog in Newburyport; Nick Catt, owner of Porto Pizza in Vineyard Haven; and Sean E. Murphy, an Edgartown attorney.

A site visit will take place next Tuesday at the property, which is currently vacant.

Bids are due by Monday, Jan. 8. Lease terms range from a minimum of 15 years to maximum of 30 years. Allowed businesses range from offices or retail space to a theatre, hall, club, or restaurant with less than 50 seats.

In other business Monday, selectmen heard an update from Memorial Wharf restoration committee member Steve Ewing about phase one completion of the project to restore the pavilion at the town wharf. Mr. Ewing and the rest of the committee thanked town officials, town boards and others for their help, and asked selectmen to keep the committee together for the rest of the restoration.

“I’m glad you want to stay on, it needs to be done,” selectman Margaret Serpa said. “You’ve done a great job and we want you to finish it up.”

Ms. Mulinare and fire chief Peter Shemeth also provided an update about a project to replace a generator at Edgartown School, which includes relocating the generator to run power to areas that do not currently have emergency power. The school serves as an emergency shelter in case of hurricanes or lengthy power outages.

Selectman voted to ask animal control officer Barbara Prada to continue to work with members of an Edgartown neighborhood after a nuisance dog hearing regarding barking dogs in an area off Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road near Pilgrim Road.

Selectmen also congratulated Ms. Prada for receiving the Golden Bone Award from the Animal Control Officers Association of Massachusetts. The award was given to Ms. Prada in recognition of her dedication to the job and the town.
