Tonight, the Bristol Downtown Development Corp. approved a long, detailed contract with Don Monti, president of Renaissance Downtowns.
The deal, which next goes to the city council for approval, gives Monti two years to come up with a concrete plan for the 17-acre, city-owned site in the heart of Bristol. It is largely empty now but was the place where the old mall once stood.
Councilors will take it up next week.
