DOWNTOWN PARKING AND STREETSCAPE DESIGN AND PLAN
The second project the city is seeking proposals for are from qualified professional engineering/consulting firms to create a downtown business district parking and streetscape design and plan.
This project is being undertaken to create an inviting, attractive and artistic look that showcases our small-town charm while retaining our history and attracting traffic to the retail and eating establishment within the city. Thru this project, we will fulfill the commitment to the business owners, residents, and visitors to provide the best experience possible while creating an inviting environment for visitors and drive-by commuters.
Using public input, the selected firm will help refine the city’s vision, prepare conceptual design drawings for State Street streetscape, Main Street streetscape, parking lot improvements, create a plan for achieving the selected design, prepare construction/engineering drawings and prepare cost estimates for each phase. This approach, if we so choose, will allow the City to bid the project as a multi-phased project which minimizes disruption to our businesses and is a cost-effective usage of our tax payer dollars.
Proposals must be received by 4:00 P.M. on August 25, 2022. For more information please visit www.cityofhart.org/employment-and-rfps.php
