The City of Portland was recently awarded a grant through a healthy communities initiative administered by the Indiana State Department of Health to develop a Community-Wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. 13 communities around the state received similar grants in recent years.
In partnership with Jay County government and a Community Advisory Committee, the City of Portland, Indiana, invites experienced, qualified consulting firms to submit Statements of Qualifications and Project Proposals for professional services to develop a County-Wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan for the City of Portland and all of Jay County, Indiana. Proposals and qualification statements will be used in selecting an expert consulting firm (the consultant) to lead the planning project.
The full text of the Request for Proposal can be downloaded here or by request from contacts listed further below.
The City of Portland will chair a selection committee comprised of representatives from City and County Government and the Community Advisory Committee to review proposals, conduct interviews as needed, and select the preferred consulting firm.
As fiscal agent and lead government agency for the project, the City of Portland requests that all proposal packages be submitted by 4:00 p.m., Friday, August 4, 2017, to Portland City Hall, 321 North Meridian Street, Portland, IN 47371.
