Boeing outlines questions for officials
April 9, 2001
DENVER (AP) – Colorado officials plan to meet Wednesday with The Boeing Co. representatives who are searching for a new home for their headquarters.
Boeing officials were in Texas last weekend and also visited the other finalist city, Chicago.
Company representatives have given Colorado officials six pages of questions that need to be answered by week’s end, said Ron Bernstein, executive director of the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade.
Members of the Boeing team are scheduled to visit Chicago on April 18-19, Dallas-Fort Worth on April 24-25 and Denver on May 1-2. They hope to have a decision by mid-May.
Seattle-based Boeing announced last month that it was moving its corporate headquarters to Denver, Chicago or Dallas. The jet manufacturer plans to cut its corporate staff of 1,000 to 500 in the new city.
Last week, officials representing Boeing informally looked at several potential real estate sites in the Denver area, said Bob Lee, head of economic development and international trade for Colorado.
Last weekend, Boeing officials were in Dallas to examine real estate.
A similar trip was made to the Chicago area.
